& # 39; I give up, I've felt miserable for too long now and I just can't take it anymore, & # 39; reads a woman.

A third powerful message came from a person struggling with self-harm. & # 39; I cut myself again, & # 39; reads a woman. & # 39; It happens almost every day now. I want to quit but don't know how & # 39 ;.

Afterwards a man reads: & # 39; I'm in my car. I have driven for hours. I'm so depressed. I just don't know what to do & # 39 ;.

Prince William, 37 years ago, visited Harcombe House in Devon and spoke about his ambition when the service announced a partnership with emergency service organizations.

He spoke with volunteers from the service, which was developed by William and Kate & # 39; s Royal Foundation, and said: & I intend to prepare myself, I really want to do it.

& # 39; Even if I can only do one hour on my laptop. I want to do the training and be able to help. & # 39;

Shout, launched earlier this year, is a free and anonymous service staffed by volunteers who can provide immediate assistance day and night on issues ranging from suicide to breaking relationships, as well as the effects of abuse or bullying.

Volunteers receive 25 hours of online training before they are brought into contact with members of the public via the text crisis.

It was decided to offer an SMS service because many, especially young people, find it easier to send a message by telephone than to call a traditional helpline.

If the situation is considered an emergency with a real risk to life, it can be passed on to the relevant emergency services.
