Instant Messenger

Nightline offers an online instant messenger service, from 8pm to 8am every night of term. This can sometimes feel easier than picking up the phone, giving you an extra bit of time and space to prepare what you want to say. Just click on the link below to talk to one of our trained volunteers. If you’re ready to leave the chat, please press the exit button to let our volunteers know that you’re leaving. The system is free and still completely anonymous: you don’t need to enter any details at all and we have no way of identifying you.

If our service is unavailable, please contact the Samaritans at 116 123 or [email protected], or you can contact the Shout Crisis Text Line by texting ‘SHOUT’ to 85258

Click below between 8pm and 8am every night of the semester except Thursdays to chat online with a trained volunteer.

We are currently closed, please check back again later.

If you’ve used the service and would like to leave some feedback, please click here. We’re always looking for ways to improve, so we’d love to hear from you!
