"During the summer holidays, especially in July, we get considerably more calls that at any other time" explains Susanna Winter from Mieli.
"Many other service providers are closed or only open during limited times in the summer, but our crisis line is open every day of the year, and in the middle of the night." she says.
The most common topics for discussion in the summer were interpersonal issues, and people looking for help with problems related to exhaustion, studying and working life.
The Mieli helpline offers advice in several languages to callers.
