The Red Cross Helpline 1717 is a toll-free number open 24 hours a day for those who need assistance due to grief, anxiety, fear, depression and/or suicidal thoughts. Red Cross volunteers offer immediate emotional support to those who feel distressed or lonely, and when needed provide information on how to receive further assistance.
The Helpline is operated by Red Cross staff and volunteers who have experience in providing assistance to people in distress and receive regular training from professionals at the Mental Ward of the National University Hospital and the office of the Surgeon General.
