Get free, confidential support from a depression hotline in India

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.

There are 15 depression hotlines in India that you can contact for free help if you're experiencing the following symptoms:

  • 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

We are all at risk of developing depression. Many people around the world have been where you are right now. The symptoms of depression can, however, make our lives miserable. Luckily, there is a way out of that dark place.

Depression can make you feel like a burden to others so you may be hesitant to ask for help. However, there are helpline volunteers and counselors in India who care about your situation and want to help. Sharing your feelings with a compassionate listener can help you feel supported and less alone.

If you are ready to talk to someone about your experiences of depression, you can contact a hotline in India for free and confidential support.
