Our latest work: Find A Helpline

The internet is full of long and confusing mental health and crisis helpline lists, with outdated data and broken links.

Why is this a problem for people in crisis?

It’s too difficult to find relevant help, know who to trust, or just too hard to ask. This means people in crisis all over the world don’t access support.

Why is this a problem for organizations and businesses?

For news media and social platforms, helpline signposting is the go-to strategy to support users and offset risk. Self-managing lists costs time and is unreliable.

That's why we made Find A Helpline, a free tool that connects people to the right helpline for them, wherever they are.
