Mindline is an out of hours helpline for South Devon and Torbay. it is Confidential listening service that provides a safe place to talk if you, or a loved one, is in distress. We can also give basic information about mental health and local services.
Our listeners treat all callers, regardless of background, in a non-judgmental way with dignity and respect.
We are open Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 8pm till 11pm.
When our lines are busy, or closed, our switchboard can connect you to our sister service, the Samaritans.
As well as listening to your issues we can also give information about;
- local services
- how to get help
- Basic information on mental health issues.
Mindline volunteers are people like you who offer their time and support to listen to others. Some may have a particular interest in mental health, while others may be survivors or have looked after someone close to them who has experienced distress. Our volunteers are fully trained and receive ongoing training and support. All have an understanding of what mental distress means for others.
Why some people may call Mindline South Devon and Torbay
Some people really need someone to talk to; to get things off their chest as they don’t have someone to talk to about whatever is on their mind. Some may feel desperate and don’t know what to do about a situation or know where they can go for help or support in South Devon and Torbay. Others may feel isolated, alone and really want to talk about their day or their problems with a person in confidence.
