After-Hours Crisis Support Line
The University of Newcastle operates an after hours crisis support phone line between 5pm to 9am weekdays, and 24 hours over the weekends and public holidays.
This service is operated by a team of qualified crisis support specialists who can support you to find relief from current distress, explore coping strategies, and safely manage any immediate threats to life or safety. The service offers immediate and short-term crisis support only, not an ongoing counselling relationship, therapy or treatment.

The service offers immediate and short-term crisis support only, not an ongoing counselling relationship, therapy or treatment. If you’d like to, you can also seek help from the Counselling team for ongoing treatment.
