If your mental health makes you feel lonely or isolated, or if you’d like someone to encourage and support you to reach your goals, you may benefit from connecting with a befriender.
Whether you are going through an issue that you feel is hard to talk to those around you, or just want a chat, befriending can help.
You’ll be matched with a trained volunteer befriender who will support you over the phone, weekly for 6-8 weeks. The calls will give you the chance to receive emotional support, or just have a regular chat. Often this is a great way to explore other support available.
All of our befrienders have lived experience of mental health issues and are here to listen and offer non-judgemental support.
