Shout doesn't stop for Christmas, because neither do anxiety, depression or loneliness. Last Christmas, we helped more than 14,000 texters - many suicidal. Things have only got tougher in the UK and this year we expect 20,000 people to need our support. With your help, we can be here for them, 24/7.
We urgently need your help to support people with their mental health.Donate
Keeping our lifeline open this Christmas
We're took part in this year's Big Give Christmas Challenge to raise vital funds for our life-saving mental health support service, with every pound that you donated being matched by Selfridges and the Monday Charitable Trust.
Thank you so much for your support. Together, we raised a phenomenal £81,400, which could help an additional 8,140 people in their moment of crisis - a conversation that could save their life this Christmas.
Supporting people in distress this Christmas
As one of few services to be open and operating as normal throughout the festive period, we’re there for people like Emily when other services are closed.
Donate today and you can help us be there for someone who is struggling with their mental health. £10 enables us to take a potentially life-saving conversation.
Ben’s story: I know what it’s like to lose someone, and I don’t want anyone to ever feel like they’re alone
In 2018 Ben lost his younger brother to suicide. One night when he was struggling to cope with his feelings he reached out to Shout for support, an experience that has since led him to become a volunteer and help others with their mental health.
