NICRS

The National Indigenous Critical Response Service supports individuals, families, and communities affected by suicide or other significant trauma.

A Critical Response Support Advocate can be contacted 24/7 by calling 1800 805 801.

The telephone service is usually answered by one of our Critical Response Support Advocates. If for some reason the call is diverted to message bank, callers are asked to leave a message with their best contact number and the Support Advocate will call them back as soon as possible.
