Global Crisis and Support Information Found on Unwanted Life | Mental Health and Invisible Disabilities Blog

Global Crisis Lines And Support

I’ve added a lot of support details and crisis lines to my posts since creating my blog. Thus, I thought It might be useful to collect all that information into one easily findable page for people to access.

 

Although crisis line information for the UK can be found in this list, I’ve also created a page that has links to all the UK’s support services, which can be found here.

I took the rather odd way of listing stuff first by category and then by country. Starting the list off with 24/7 Crisis Lines, followed by Help LinesText LinesEmail SupportWebchatMessage Boards and Forums, and lastly, Online Group Support.

 

Remember, you are Unwanted Life!

 

I’ve done my best to check all the details I for all the details to be as accurate as I can make them, but I’m not perfect. Please let me know if any details are incorrect or have changed.

 

Also, please feel free to tell me about any other crisis lines, support numbers, live chats, messaging services, etc. that aren’t listed here, especially for other countries. You never know who that might ended up helping one day.
