Open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Mindline is a confidential listening service which provides a safe place to talk if you, or someone you know, is in distress. We can also give basic information about mental health and local support services.
Our listeners treat all callers, regardless of background, in a non-judgmental way with dignity and respect. When our lines are busy, or closed, our switchboard can connect you to our sister service, the Samaritans.
As well as listening to your issues we can also give information about;
- local services
- how to get help
- basic information on mental health issues.
If you are looking for a helpline to talk to someone that will listen to you, Mindline has volunteers that provide a listening ear for you or someone you know.
When you call we do not trace our calls and your number will not display on our phones. We will not ask for personal details to be shared unless you or someone you know would like us to find immediate help from other services for you or them and that you agree to giving it. We will not pass on any information unless you have said it is ok to do so.
