1800Chaplain is a nationwide toll-free service offering confidential chaplaincy support to all Australians.

With lifesaving crisis helplines receiving unprecedented call volumes, 1800Chaplain will fill a growing need for early intervention, preventative pastoral care before the person experiences suicidal ideation.

The helpline will be a safe and confidential forum that takes a holistic view of the person’s emotions, stressors, challenges and moral dilemmas, where they need not shy away from deeper questions about their life, their relationships, their faith or their sense of purpose. Our trained and accredited chaplains can help callers find support, comfort, reassurance and, where needed, referral to other services.
