With the valuable help of Euro Youth Mental Health and MHE members, we have created this map which gathers helplines or support organisations for young people in all European countries. In a few clicks, this interactive map will help you find more details on support services for young people in your country.
Please do not hesitate to share the map with your network, it may be helpful to one of your friends, colleagues of family members.
These services were still running when our research was conducted. If you find that they have changed or no longer exist, please contact our office. Please note that the organisations featured may or may not be affiliated with MHE.
Click the country/flag of your choice on the map to find out about existing helplines or organisations. Click ‘more info’ to read short descriptions of these services and access the full list of existing organisations/helplines for young people in Europe.
