In Greece the national hotline seems to be 210-197 at this address. I found it through web search so I don't know if it's functional, but it is under the auspices of the Ministry of Social Security and (according to its webpage) manned by professionals 24/7. While investigating the resource, please check if their number is 210 197 for all places or 197 for Athens and 210 197 from outside Athens. The police (100) is also known to be responding to crisis/suicide calls. I've included these numbers in the Greek translation of the intro. On a sidenote, I think it would be worth to translate the "Worldwide" section of the list so I'll just leave the transation here.

Παγκόσμια Κατάλογος αριθμών τηλεφώνου που παρέχουν υποστήριξη για την αποτροπή της αυτοκτονίας Διεθνώς και στις ΗΠΑ Ένα παγκόσμιο δίκτυο εθελοντών και ΜΚΟ για την παροχή συναισθηματικής υποστήριξης
   Samaritans Φιλανθρωπική οργάνωση με έδρα στο Ηνωμένο Βασίλειο που παρέχει υποστήριξη (στα Αγγλικά) σε άτομα οπουδήποτε στον κόσμο

Thanks Badseed, I'll plug the greek translation in for the Worldwide section (if you want to translate the rest of it you can also use the translation group) and we'll look at the greek numbers and create a section for Greece once we've confirmed. I'll ping you here when we do :) Jalexander--WMF 18:08, 9 January 2017 (UTC)


The most commonly known helplines in Germany are the pastoral helplines, Telefonseelsorge. There is a helpline for women from the government called Hilfetelefon. This site lists more very effective emergency numbers. This institution is a unique counselling service for all things concering suicide. They do not have a crisis helpline, but can be contacted by all German speaking people at normal office hours and get good advice. If I think of any more numbers or institutions, I will tell here. --Kritzolina (talk) 20:31, 9 January 2017 (UTC)

"Suggest one" pages leads to... officewikiEdit

We're sorry, but there are not currently resources for KR. Please feel free to suggest some on the talk page.

Then "talk page" links to, which is officewiki, where none of the volunteers have an access to (including me). Shouldn't it be... this page? I don't know which page to edit (or which page should be the destination), so here's the note. — regards, Revi 11:49, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

@-revi: Did this get fixed? I don't see the link on the page anymore. Joe Sutherland (Wikimedia Foundation) (talk) 21:57, 27 May 2018 (UTC)
I still see it, as there were no contacts for PT. GoEThe (talk) 13:23, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

@Ruthven:, thanks for giving us this information! Unfortunately I could not verify that the Filo Parlante hotline gives the counseling kids professional support, this is why I did not include the number in our list. The Contattolink also unfortunately does not work, it currently leads to a clothing shop. But I added the suicide hotlines and the Telefono Azurro to our lists. --CSteigenberger (WMF) (talk) 17:57, 19 September 2019 (UTC)
@CSteigenberger (WMF): Thank you. ConTatto effectively ended in 2017. Filo Parlante ( is a team of volunteers coordinated by a psychologist - I dunno how much it is spread at the national level. Cheers --Ruthven (msg) 11:54, 20 September 2019 (UTC)


Here is a suggestion for a reputable hotline in Israel:

  • ERAN (ער"ן), dial 1201 from any Israeli phone (Available in Hebrew, English, Arabic, and Russian), or chat online (info page in Hebrew only, but chat supported in the four languages mentioned) - the main mental health first-aid hotline, operated by a veteran, trusted non-profit.
Thanks a lot, I will add this to the list --CSteigenberger (WMF) (talk) 10:06, 8 May 2020 (UTC)
