Sometimes you need to share your experiences, thoughts and feelings with someone who listens. For those who seek human support at night.
Guy Questions (Killfrågor.se)*
Killfrågor.se is a national support chat online, and is run by the organization MEN. We want to empower guys to seek support, talk about emotions and think and act more equally. We listen to stories, and talk about things that affect the lives of guys in different ways. By having safe rooms where guys can talk and seek support, we want to prevent violence, and ill-health in themselves. It is not uncommon to feel ill from time to time and then have to seek support in their surroundings. Admitting to yourself that you are feeling ill is often a first step to feeling better. There is always help in getting whatever problems you have and to what extent you feel bad. We are open Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday between 7pm and 9pm.
Phone: 031-80 06 50
Sharing the difficult with someone makes a difference. You can contact the emergency telephone or SOS mailbox anonymously. Those who respond are ordinary fellow human beings who have a duty of secrecy and are trained to provide emotional support in difficult situations. Confidentiality means that what you say or write must not be told to anyone else.
Phone: 08-512 56 040
Lifeline is a non-profit Christian calling line where you can share your thoughts, feelings and thoughts anonymously about life and its meaning with a fellow listener. Respondents received training in call support.
