There are many organisations out there to help you when you’re feeling sad, anxious, or worse. So if you are struggling, or just need someone to talk to, please contact one of the services listed below. It can be scary and hard to do, but I promise it will help.

I’ve tried to identify the organisations that offer crisis support in bold. But if you are – or someone you know is – in immediate danger, please call your local emergency number or go to the nearest hospital.
