Free helplines for loneliness are available in India

There are 21 helplines you can call in India if you're feeling lonely. Everyone feels lonely sometimes and there's no shame in seeking support. Loneliness can look like:

  • Increased desire to binge-watch TV shows or movies.
  • Feeling frustrated, anxious or irritable.
  • Feeling unseen or unheard by others.
  • Feeling that your physical and/or mental health is suffering.
  • Feeling that life is meaningless.
  • Feeling extremely tired and even burnt out when you try to socialize.
  • Being unable to develop deep, meaningful connections with others.
  • Feeling a sense of emptiness like there's a void that needs to be filled.

When loneliness is experienced for a long time, it's usually because you're not connecting with others on a deep level. People were made to experience meaningful connections, so when we feel disconnected from others, it can have a negative impact on our wellbeing.

You may be reluctant to ask for help, especially if it feels like nobody will relate to you and understand what you're going through. But getting help can relieve the emotional burden you're carrying and help you feel less isolated. There are compassionate helpline volunteers and counselors in India that want to support you.

If you think you might need support with loneliness, consider contacting a helpline in India for free, confidential help.
