Reach out to a free depression hotline in Switzerland for confidential help

Depression is one of the most common mental health problems, affecting about 13% of people worldwide. Depression can affect people differently, but common feelings associated with depression include sadness, hopelessness, worthlessness, and guilt.

If you're in Switzerland and this sounds like you, then 2 hotlines are available and ready to support you. Consider reaching out if you notice these signs and symptoms of depression:

  • You cannot concentrate and have difficulties memorizing things
  • Things that used to bring you joy mean nothing to you now
  • You wake up during the night or at dawn and cannot fall asleep again
  • You ruminate over all your past mistakes
  • Your appetite and eating habits have changed
  • You have lost energy and feel tired all the time
  • You find it difficult to socialize
  • You feel discouraged and pessimistic

Depression can be a response to a loss or great stress in your life. However, it can also happen for no obvious reason. Both experiences are fairly common but depression can make it feel like nobody will relate to what you're going through.

Depression can cause you to feel that things are hopeless and that you won't get better. But depression is a treatable disorder. With the right support, you can find ways to cope and heal. Reaching out to a dedicated volunteer or counselor in Switzerland can be a couragous first step.

If you feel like you might need support with feelings of sadness, depression or hopelessness, try reaching out to a hotline in Switzerland. It's free and confidential.
