Although reaching out for help can be tough, doing so can bring great solace. I know, I’ve been there.

Simply finding out you’re not alone, that someone cares, can be very comforting, but we’re often not prepared to offload onto loved ones. We don’t want to burden them with our problems.

Below you’ll find, separated by country, a list of suicide hotlines, mental health helplines, and general advice centers who are ready and willing to listen, many of which are manned 24/7.

You’ll be able to speak anonymously, should you wish, so do pick up the phone. Asking for help is nothing to be ashamed of.

If you spot a mistake in the list or know of another hotline or helpline that should be included, please let me know.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Lisa Williams is a committed vegan, passionate animal welfare advocate, and keen follower of too many v-friendly food blogs to mention.

She started happyhappyvegan.com back in 2016 because she felt there was a need for more straightforward information on plant-based living. Back then, too many sites seem to either concentrate solely on recipes or be too intimidating or inaccessible for the v-curious and she wanted to change that. The landscape is certainly a whole lot different now!

Lisa lives in Sussex with her husband and their three-legged wonder dog, Mable.
