PROK is proud to announce our latest partnership with Lifeline WA, Western Australia’s largest telephone crisis support service.
Lifeline WA provides all Western Australians experiencing a personal crisis or thinking about suicide with access to 24-hour crisis support and suicide prevention services.
We are living through incredibly difficult times, and the most vulnerable in our community have been the hardest hit. Lifeline WA has seen a sustained increase in demand for crisis services over the last 12 months.
In an ideal world, we’d all be aware of what to do in a crisis and how to support each other. But none of us live in an ideal world. Lifeline WA is here to help when it feels like there is no-one around who can help. From their training in mental health first aid, suicide prevention and support services, they provide real world skills and practical advice on what to do when you feel like there is no where else to turn.
PROK will assist in providing much needed funds to on-board, train and support telephone counsellors. With such a high volume of calls, having fully trained crisis supporters available is crucial to helping those in need.
PROK General Manager Wade Guelfi commented “We’re thrilled to partner with Lifeline WA who provide such an important service to the community. The mining industry in particular is faced with a lot of challenges around mental health and we see this partnership with Lifeline WA as the perfect opportunity to help support those in need. We aim to run a number of fundraising initiatives in 2022 where we can raise even more funds and awareness for Lifeline WA’s 13 11 14 service.”
Lifeline WA Chief Executive Officer, said “We are extremely grateful to PROK, their support comes at a crucial time for Lifeline WA as we continue to build our crisis support service to meet the demand for our 13 11 14 crisis support service.”
“We want everyone to know that Lifeline is always there for them, 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
“If you, or someone you know are feeling overwhelmed, we encourage you to connect with Lifeline on 13 11 14 (24 hours/7 days).”
