The “You Are Not Alone” initiative aims to provide a safe space for Abu Dhabi residents
The team aims to create a safe and non-judgemental space through every call. They also assure that all call are confidential and callers can remain anonymous. Furthermore, they created this service to help residents.
It’s a safe space where they can talk about psychological concerns and mental health over the phone. Also, the Abu Dhabi Health Services Company is providing services from telephone counselling to referrals.
Your mental health matters!
However, if you need assistance outside of SEHA’s helpline’s hours, Amal Counseling offers a 24 hour helpline service. This non-profit organisation opened in 2020 amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
