While Velvet focuses on being 100% a music site, that shares new music and the occasional musical fueled article, it’s important to know (and important for me to let you know) that Velvet is a safe space for everyone who comes across this site.

The conditioning of a person’s mental health and wellbeing is extremely important, as well as their physical and emotional stability, not just to Velvet, but to that person and that person’s social surroundings (friends/family/colleagues).

Rape, self-harming, abuse, assault, suicide and bullying, are just a few issues that millions across the world face every day, especially young people.

On this page, I will be adding links as frequently as I can, from as many charities/organisations and companies from around the globe that are here to help with any mental, emotional, physical or environmental issues that you need a confidential voice to speak to.

There is also a list of hotlines for a number of countries across the globe provided by the “livinginhellwithcrps” tumblr account (who is linked below). If you feel you are in immediate need of help, these numbers are available to call 24/7.

It’s disrespectful to say suicide isn’t an option because clearly it is and has been for some people and still will be, unfortunately. It doesn’t have to be, nor does it need to be, so if you don’t feel comfortable using any of those links then, or even comfortable speaking to family or friends, please feel free to message me (Doyle) on my personal Facebook. Sometimes talking can help and sometimes having someone to listen who cares and has possibly been through a similar situation can mean the world and make the difference.
