Welcome to The Lighthouse for Perth. We are a non-profit organisation for people in crisis. We offer support to anyone aged 12 or over who is struggling with their mental health or emotions. This includes people who are having thoughts of self-harm or suicide, or who are finding themselves in emotional distress or crisis.
We have updated the information on our website to account for all changes as a result of the Covid-19 restrictions. People still need our support during the pandemic and thus we are committed to finding a way to keep our service as accessible as possible. We will work with all clients to ensure that they feel safe throughout their interactions with us and that they get the right kind of support for their needs.
We are here to listen and support you without judgement.
We aim to:
- Provide a listening service to support people with self-harming behaviours and suicidal ideation.
- Provide a safe space for people who are at crisis point or who have thoughts of self-harm and suicide
- Ensure that those in crisis preserve their dignity and promote contact between organisations or mental health services
- Promote awareness around mental health, in particular self-harm and suicide.

When We're Closed
There are lots of useful tools you can use and other great organisations that may be able to help you in the meantime. We have pages dedicated to these resources which either our staff or service users have recommended to us. If you have a recommendation or would like your service to be featured, please contact us with the details.
By sharing the tools that work for you, you could help us support someone else in crisis.
