Feeling depressed? Reach out to a hotline in Portugal for free, confidential support

Depression can change the way you think, feel and behave. It can look different in different people, but depression is typically characterized by a persistent low mood. You might feel sad, unmotivated and even hopeless.

If you're in Portugal and experiencing these symptoms, there are 3 helplines ready to help:

  • You could feel slower in your movement, speech, and reactions than usual
  • Things that used to bring you joy mean nothing to you now
  • You feel worthless and deserving of disgust
  • You could be sleeping excessively
  • Sometimes, you feel dead inside
  • You feel down in the dumps
  • You don’t care for your hobbies or work
  • You became irritable for no reason

Even though depression symptoms may feel overwhelming, they are not uncommon. It is normal to find yourself depressed at some point. With the right help, you can deal with feelings of sadness and hopelessness.

Talking about how you feel when you're depressed is hard. You may not want to burden other people with your problems. But it's important to recognize that this is your depression talking. There are helpline counselors and volunteers in Portugal that want to listen and offer you the loving support you need.

If you're in Portugal and struggling with feelings of depression, sadness or hopelessness – or just feel alone in what you're going through – consider contacting a helpline for free, confidential help today.
