Switchboard LGBT+ Helpline

You can talk about anything with the Switchboard volunteers, who all self-define as LGBT+. Nothing is off limits, and the volunteers understand how anxious you might feel before you pick up the phone. Calls are confidential and they only finish when you’re ready.

You can talk (lines open everyday 10am-10pm) or email Switchboad (emails typically replied to within 72 hours).

There is also an online chat available on the website and it will say when it’s open/closed.
