Record number of calls to helpline in July

A record number of calls were made to the crisis hotline in the summer.

Most of those who applied complained of poor emotional state during the pandemic. In second place in terms of frequency were problems in their personal life.

This summer there were also many calls from people with suicidal intentions. Most often, people aged 18 to 40 spoke about an acute desire to commit suicide. Men began to address this issue more often than last year.

Overall, there are slightly fewer conversations about suicide than last year.

The helpline also began to be called more often due to loneliness. This applies to all age groups.

The crisis hotline received 28,800 calls in July, that is, about 900 calls daily.

The crisis line number 09 2525 0111 receives calls around the clock.
