The Mental Support Line features a toll-free hotline as well as a messaging service to help UAE residents and citizens cope with pandemic induced stress, fears, anxiety.

Volunteer mental health experts, consultants, and specialists are lending their expertise to provide initial psychological counseling and support.

The service, launched by The UAE National Programme for Happiness and Wellbeing, is available in English and Arabic.

If you are, or anyone you know is, struggling with any such issues, we urge you to remember that you are not alone in this and to call or send a WhatsApp message to the following number; 800-4673 (Hope).

The UAE is home to several mental health help centers and facilities, one of them being Lighthouse Arabia.
