Help Our Helplines

Over the last few months, anxiety and loneliness have greatly increased, with rates of depression doubling during lockdown.

Talking can ease stress and reduce anxiety. But not everyone has someone to talk to or somewhere to turn for help.

That's why Britain's mental health helplines have never mattered more.

Whether we're lonely, anxious or concerned for a loved one, our helplines are here for all of us. Now, in this mental health emergency, they face huge demand and they need our help.
