Mental Health Hotlines Worldwide

Sometimes we need someone to talk to right here, right now. There’s nothing wrong with that. In fact, that’s a great idea! Few decision are smarter than reaching out to someone who can help when life gets hard. Here is a list of hotlines you can call.
There’s a lot of people ready to help if you’re ready to ask. A lot of the time it might be easier to speak to someone you don’t know, or to stay anonymous. When it comes to mental health issues, we suggest that you seek help from a mental health professional, and to talk to your doctor. Yet, there’s nothing wrong with talking to someone who is prepared to listen right now.

If you know of any charities, foundations or helplines that is not listed, please let us know. Help us develop this list of helplines worldwide.
