Tasmania

I became involved with Lifeline in 1987. Since that time I have had the wonderful experience of being a telephone crisis support worker, serving on boards, local, national and International. I have also had the privilege of training Lifeline volunteers in Samoa, Fiji, Tonga and Sri Lanka. I have represented Lifeline at many international meetings. I am working with other International organisations as the World Alliance of Crisis Helplines and we are working with WHO in suicide prevention.
