SANE also provides a Helpline Online service. You can use this to ask questions about mental illness and related topics. Enquiries are usually answered within 3 working days. Use Helpline Online for more specific information and referral to support agencies (it is not a counselling service).
The Helpline chat service provides real-time live chat information and advice from a growing number of SANE website pages.
In a crisis
The SANE Helpline is not a crisis service. In an emergency, see our Crisis Contacts for where to get appropriate help.
