Hi :)
You can use the free support line if you:
- Used to hear voices (6 yrs or 20 yrs ago example)
- If you have a relative who hears a voice or friend or family
- If you have any hallucinations or have/had paranoia
- If you have/had visions
- If you just want to share your experience
- Simply want facts about voices

The Service does not have phone support, only email.
Take Care :):D

This sounds like a good and useful service.

I have been thinking there is a need for one specifically for psychosis.

You can talk to Samaritans about psychosis but they can tell you anything back or give you advice.

Most phone lines are for depression/suicidal thoughts.

i think it says the service doesn't have phone support only e mail, another so called service without the funding

it is still better than nothing.

To man a phoneline 24/7 with suitable qualified, trained and experienced people may be too much to ask.

In my country there is a NGO that provides such help for parents in regards to their children (for both physical or mental problems), I actually called them once when my son got really drunk and I didn’t know what to do about his risperidone for that day and at 112 they said they will not advise me over the phone line.. and I didn’t want to go to the hospital just to increase the anxiety.

I am really struggling at the moment.

I have called the Mind info line. They were not able to answer any of my questions at all. They just kept telling me to look at the Mind Website.

Samaritans can't help at all. They can only listen to you talk. I can't talk to them unless I have privacy which I don't.

My GP no longer works at my GP surgery. I was able to trust the GP I had enough to be able to actually go to the doctor. Now I can't even go to the doctor.

I feel very much alone. I am just crying all the time.

I would like this service by Hearing Voices network but i don't want to email as I would have to set up a new email address and I can't be bothered to do that. It is not really confidential if they have your email address.

Why is it that no one is willing to help people with psychosis?

Everyone seems very keen to help people with mild depression and anxiety.

Do you have someone close? It would help just to keep you company and feel safe, but it would take a while to gain trust of your surroundings.

I just want to be alone. I want to hibernate.

Mental Healthcare is not so good in this country. My GP was very good though. I trusted that Gp. That GP kept an eye on my and tried to improve my health without treating me like an annoyance or a pain.

My other option is just to never have any mental health healthcare and just be psychotic for the rest of my life.

I think you could live like this, you won’t be in a permanent psychotic state, but it won’t certainly feel like a good life. You can rely on medics to guide you through, but it’s more important what you actually do day by day. I think you are doing pretty good if you can be here and try to find out what could be wrong with you.
