This isn't a deal as such but there are so many great organisations out there to help tackle all sorts of issues. From loneliness to depression and bereavement etc. Free helplines just a call away.
As someone who's now completely fine with admitting I went through dark times of depression that did ultimately lead to overwhelming feelings of loneliness too, these charities and organisations really help.
If this post just helps one person, I feel that it is worthwhile posting.Mind
