Towards the end of last year, regular listeners will have heard Dr Michelle Wright introduce Heart2Heart, the English-language service of La Main Tendue or Die Dargebotene Hand. This was set up for people who need a supportive ear. It is not just for someone in crisis, but also for a person with daily worries that are getting on top of them. 

Today she is joined by Matthias Herren who helped set up the crisis line in English. He outlines who the service is for and how useful it has been to date.
