Who can I talk to?

There are times in our lives when things are not going well and if you don't have anyone you feel you can talk to, you may want to call someone anonymously for advice or search for some online assistance.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Here is a list of useful organisations and contacts you can use if you feel the need.  Most are not Adventist or even Christian organisations but they may be able to provide you with a listening ear and some useful advice when you need it most.
