2020 has been a difficult year. If you're feeling overwhelmed, anxious or exhausted by it, you're not alone.
At Shout 85258, more than 50% of people who have contacted us felt that they didn't have anyone else to talk to. Nearly 30% of our texters mention feelings of depression, and the same percentage of people also tell us they're having suicidal thoughts.
This year's World Mental Health Day is on 10th October. At this time and beyond, we're encouraging you to have a conversation with someone if you are finding it difficult to cope, and 'mask your face, not your feelings'.
If you're struggling, you can text SHOUT to 85258 for free, confidential, 24/7 support.
