Crisis Support

The CJD Support Network is the only UK charity providing emotional and practical support for all forms of CJD & prion disease and those who are at greater risk. While we offer guidance and resources for those affected and their families, we do not provide crisis support. If you are in need of someone to talk to, there are free and confidential listening services available at any time.

You can reach out to Samaritans at 116 123 or email [email protected] for a response within 24 hours. Additionally, you can contact the Samaritans Welsh Language Line at 0808 164 0123 or text ‘SHOUT’ to 85258 for the Shout Crisis Text Line.

If you are under 19, you can text ‘YM’ or call Childline at 0800 1111.

These services are non-judgmental, free, and always accessible.

For further support, MIND’s website offers information on additional helplines and support services.
