Providing free, one-on-one support for loneliness,
one conversation at a time
At CONTACT Line, we prioritize active listening and emotional support for those experiencing anything from loneliness to a rough week. The mental health benefits of casual face-to-face interactions have encouraged us to create a free, accessible platform distinct from existing call and text lines to provide individualized and consistent meetings with volunteer Listeners trained in empathy, active listening, motivational interviewing, and other evidenced-based practices to provide comprehensive support to those in need. While we are in no way a replacement for therapy or other medical-based interventions, we hope to provide a nourishing, genuine, and caring environment for those who are lonely and need someone to talk to.
