We believe that nobody should have to face a mental health problem alone.
That is why we at Mindline Somerset have decided to expand our unique style of telephone support to seven days a week. Mindline has been running since 2002 and is run by volunteer call handlers who are specially trained to provide callers with a safe space to talk.
It is one of our most valuable services in our charity, as proven by quotes from our callers:
“Mindline is an outlet for me”
“It’s reassuring to know somebody is there if I need them”
“An understanding safe place”
Mental health has many common misconceptions, leaving people feel isolated and vulnerable. However one in six adults experience a common mental health problem, such as anxiety or depression, and one in five adults have considered taking their own life at some point. Unfortunately only a third of UK workers who have experienced a mental health problem have felt supported at work by their manager. This is why Mindline continues to provide such neccessary and pivotal support to the people of Somerset.
