Subject:Lifeline calls to be free from mobile phones.
Time:09:24 am



Cut and pasted from rdm's Dreamwidth, to boost the signal.

"As reported on the ABC, the Federal Government has reached a deal with the various mobile carriers in Australia allowing calls to Lifeline, the suicide prevention and mental health crisis support service.

I do not often have good things to say about politicians, but on this occasion I would like to thank the Mental Health Minister, Mark Butler, and all the dedicated public servants in his department who worked hard to put this together. I would also like to thank the mobile carriers for agreeing to help out with the deal - yes, the government will be paying them for the service, but I am certain that they could have made it a lot more difficult.

And remember, if you do feel it is too much, there is alwa
ys help at 13 11 14, and from Friday it is a  free call from
mobiles."

I didn't even realise there was an issue there. In this case, well done to everybody who got it done.
