Free helplines for loneliness are available in India

There are 12 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.

Nobody is immune to loneliness, not even social butterflies. Loneliness is usually experienced when you feel emotionally disconnected from others. Feeling disconnected from others can make you feel empty, like there's a painful void in your life that needs to be filled.

Talking to someone who cares about what you're experiencing can help you feel less alone. Calling a hotline will connect you with someone like this. Helpline volunteers and counselors in India will offer you a listening ear and will work through difficult emotions with you.

If you are ready to talk to someone about how lonely you feel, you can contact a hotline in India for free and confidential support.
