Obvuiously, we have no idea where you are, so cannot know what local resources there are. I don;t understand about Lifeline --- its a phone service opnly, so there would be nowhere to take him to, but they ought, if competent, to be able to suggest local respources you could use. If he is agreeable about seeking help, explore your local medical scool casualty Dept or the casualty department of any good local provincial hospital.
Counsellors and therapists should always make provision for genuine emergencies. but are generally not constantly available for immediate appointments at any particular time. Calm down, yopurself, as your anxiety could be disturbing for your son. And if you can't arange something today, encourage him to be hopeful, to discuss some of whatever is troubling hijm, with you, and to wait until the earliest appointment that can be arranged for him.
Lifeline ought to be able to provide someone to talk with BY PHONE. If he is a student, there should be a student counselling service at his institution
