For all your mental health Support

Thank you for visiting our site and welcome to SOS.

Being a small charity brings huge challenges, not least, being able to serve the huge demand we’ve seen for our phone support services since they started in August 2020 and especially now we are rolling out our face to face events – a welcome comeback for meetings that proved hugely successful and very well attended.

If you are in crisis, feeling vulnerable or need to talk about your mental health in general, then please get in touch via our helpline.

Friday-Monday 8pm until Midnight
