Supporting yourself (18 or over)

The following organisations provide an online chat or email facility to engage in discussion and provide support. See the details of each organisation below by clicking their image.  

If you want to find support via an online community forum, then we would advise that you start by reviewing the Samaritans guidance on talking online safely and use their recommended safe spaces run and moderated by charity organisations.
