The Emotional Support Helplines Directory app contains a collated list of all emotional support and suicide prevention helpline numbers in India along with their operating times, address and emails.
The data is updated regularly (automatically) as new numbers are discovered.
You can also add numbers of your family and friends in the speed-dial section of the app to reach out to your first line of support.
Helpline numbers can be added to a favourite list and details of the helpline numbers can also be shared with friends and family from within the app via text messaging, email, WhatsApp, etc.
Please note that you can call any help line across the country and they will be glad to help you out. The sorting of help lines by region is purely to aid you in locating one closest to you (higher chance of availability in your language and also some help lines offer face-to-face counselling).
Unfortunately, help lines are not available in all states of the country - hence the app will try to match you with a helpline closest to you. We also try very hard to maintain a list of active help lines which we have called and verified.
If you are aware of any help line from your state or region that we have missed, please do share the details via the Feedback option in the app > settings > Feedback and we will verify and add it to our database.
