Is family life making you unhappy, anxious or afraid? Contact a hotline in Japan for free, confidential support

Families can be complicated. If personality clashes, violence, substance use, illness, trauma or other problems at home are causing you fear, stress or pain, you are not alone. There are 2 hotlines in Japan for people struggling with family issues. If you are experiencing any of the following, reach out for a helping hand today:

  • Serious family issues such as divorce, addiction, loss of a family member, or sexual abuse.
  • Problems such as consistent rivalry, mistrust or personality clashes between any of your family members.
  • Trauma or loss of a loved one and its after effects on your family.
  • Family members who don’t support you due to issues of trust, miscommunication or abuse.
  • Family members who depend on you for things they cannot do for themselves.
  • A verbally, emotionally, psychologically, sexually or physically abusive family member.
  • Struggles with generational, cultural or religious differences within the family.
  • Parents or siblings who argue, fight, bully or try to control each other and you.

Family problems can be complicated. When different personalities are forced to live together under one roof, there's bound to be conflict. For some families, the conflict is severe and it can leave you feeling trapped, like you're living in a prison rather than a loving home.

You may feel alone if you're experiencing family problems. You may think that nobody else has been through what you're going through and that nobody will relate. However, there are hotline volunteers and counselors in Japan who care about the challenges you're facing and want to help you.
