HELPLINES

Here is a list of mental health helplines that are available in the UK and the US. Please use them, either for yourself or someone else you know who is struggling. If you do not live in either of these countries and would like to know of some helplines you can contact in your country, please head to the 'contact' page and let me know and I will get these numbers to you as soon as possible.
