Get free help for loneliness today from helpline in Japan

Loneliness is something that everyone experiences from time to time. But when loneliness doesn't go away, it can start to have a serious impact on your mental and physical wellbeing. If you're struggling with these symptoms of chronic loneliness, reach out to one of 4 helplines in Japan for support.

  • Loss of confidence.
  • Feeling that your physical and/or mental health is suffering.
  • Feeling fatigued and low in energy.
  • Drinking or using substances to cope with negative feelings.
  • Experiencing sleep problems such as insomnia, or interrupted sleep.
  • Being unable to develop deep, meaningful connections with others.
  • Increased feelings of stress or anxiety.
  • Finding it hard to relate to others.

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.

Taking the first step to ask for support can feel daunting. You may not be sure what to expect or whether you'll be understood. However, helpline staff in Japan are well-trained in helping people like you who are experiencing extreme loneliness. You will be treated with compassion and zero-judgement.
