PODS is no longer running a helpline service. Detailed below are some other organisations that do offer a helpline.



There are other organisations which run helplines for survivors of abuse (though not specifically for dissociative disorders). Many local rape crisis and sexual abuse centres have helplines as well which are generally available nationally (that is you don’t need to live in the area to use it).
