New Trans+ Helpline
The south west region of the Charity Mind is opening a confidential helpline to support those who identify as Trans, their families and friends. From Friday 10th February 2017 the service will be available on Mondays and Fridays 8pm – Midnight. The call-handlers (many of whom are trans) have been extensively trained and will ensure it is a safe place to talk. If you, or someone you know, is in distress it can make a real difference to talk to someone about how you feel. You will be able to talk anonymously in complete confidence. If you need someone to talk to call the Trans + Mindline: 0300 330 5468
