Lifeline Shanghai Helpline
Lifeline Shanghai was founded in Shanghai in 2004 and is a volunteer based non-profit organization that operates an English speaking Helpline for the international community in China. The helpline service provides emotional support and information. The support is anonymous, confidential and free.
We all experience tough times but sometimes we can’t solve our problems by ourselves. Getting support during difficult times can help you to find strategies to get through your situation. Often it’s easier than you thought.
Lifeline Shanghai helpline assistants are ready to listen and support, helping you to gain another perspective and connecting you with other support services as needed.
At the moment there are around 55 volunteers working for Lifeline Shanghai. Every month they receive about 250 calls and live chats.
To help people connect, Lifeline Shanghai has joined forces with “R U OK?”, an Australian suicide prevention charity, to launch an important community awareness campaign encouraging all of us to support someone who might be struggling. We know meaningful conversations with friends, family or work colleagues can play a vital role in supporting somebody that we are concerned about. It can all begin by asking ” Are you OK? “
Lifeline Shanghai can be contacted by calling the helpline (021) 6279 8990 or by using the live chat service.
Lifeline Shanghai is available every day from 10 am – 10 pm, 365 days a year.
