About Befrienders Penang

Befrienders’ aim is to provide emotional support to anyone feeling suicidal, lonely, miserable, depressed or in despair. We value that a person has the fundamental decision about their own life. We are non-judgmental and do not impose our convictions on anyone but instead provide confidential emotional support. The service is free of charge. When you contact us you will talk with one of our trained volunteers who are experienced in how to help people in your situation. They will listen to you, unpack your story and feelings, and work with you to help you through your challenges.
