Get free, confidential support from a depression hotline in England

Depression is a common mental health problem that affects millions of people worldwide. When you're depressed you feel sad on most days and you may find it difficult to keep up with life's demands.

In England, there are 19 free hotlines that support people experiencing the symptoms of depression. If you notice these signs of depression, consider reaching out:

  • You don’t care for your hobbies or work
  • You feel guilty, and you loath yourself
  • You feel sad and about to cry all the time
  • You became irritable for no reason
  • You are unable to think
  • You wake up during the night or at dawn and cannot fall asleep again
  • Even the smallest tasks take too much effort
  • You find it difficult to socialize

These signs of depression can feel confusing and scary. It is normal to feel out of place. However, with the right kind of support, you can begin to feel hopeful and positive about your life and future again.

Reaching out for help when you're depressed is tough. You may feel like nobody will get you, that nobody cares about you, or that you're beyond help. But helpline conuselors and volunteers in England have been trained to help people who are feeling depressed. They care about how you feel and they want to help.

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