Free 24/7 text service
Shout is the UK’s first free 24/7 text service for anyone in crisis anytime, anywhere. It’s a place to go if you’re struggling to cope and you need immediate help.
Shout is powered by a team of volunteers, who are at the heart of the service. We take people from crisis to calm every single day.
We will always try to respond to texters as quickly as possible, however our responses will be longer at times of high demand. We will always respond to high risk texters as a priority. If you are at imminent risk please call 999
