Why Support Lifeline Australia

Making an Impact with Lifeline

The meditationHQ Community was launched in 2018 on Avalon Beach, NSW in response to an alarming increase in suicide rates. We believe that connection to the community brings hope and purpose, and practices of mindfulness and meditation help us to reduce stress, enhance emotional well-being and rediscover the joy in the small things.

With this purpose, we have partnered with Lifeline, Australia's leading suicide prevention service with a vision to achieve an Australia free of suicide and ensure that no person in Australia has to face their darkest moments alone.

Hope through Connection

Research and experience have shown that it is through connection that we find hope and for the next 3 years we will work alongside Lifeline as an arm of mental wellness, growing OMM nationally, raising funds for suicide prevention and spreading awareness for the benefits of mindfulness meditation.

Lifeline is a national charity providing all Australians with 24-hour crisis support and suicide prevention services.

Through phone, text and online chat Lifeline is available 24 hours a day to listen, without judgement, to any person in Australia who is feeling overwhelmed, experiencing crisis or longs to be heard.

If you or someone you know are in crisis, please call Lifeline on 13 11 14 and speak to one of our telephone crisis supporters.

They are available 24/7 to listen and to provide support and referrals to appropriate services in your area.

You can also chat to us online via our Crisis Chat Support Service (www.lifeline.org.au/crisischat) or by text on 0477 13 11 14. If you are in immediate danger, please phone 000 for emergency support.
