List of FREE Helplines to help tackle loneliness, depression and bereavement

Refreshed 4th Mar 2019 (Posted 20th Dec 2018)

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

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.
