Absolutely not! The Nightline is anonymous. You don’t have to tell us anything about your person, or anything at all for that matter.
Who will be taking my call?
The Nightline’s members are students working on a voluntary basis. We are not professional therapists – we take your call at eye level.

What preparation and support can I expect?
As you join the club there will be training on talk therapy which we use in our work. At the end of each semester there will be a supervision with therapist Andrea Muth. In this safe space we can talk about any situation that, for example, may have eluded our competences.
What can I expect as participant?
Your duties include phone services and some voluntary work, e.g. PR (handing out leaflets, writing texts, etc.). Any ideas you want to contribute are more than welcome!
Yes! There is a monthly Stammtisch for members – lots of games, plenty fun.
About the Nightline
The Nightline is a helpline by students for students. We will listen to any issues or problems you might have at Uni or otherwise. We try to keep the inhibition threshold low for the callers. All calls are treated discretely and anonymously. Calls are not recorded. To promote an open and trusting conversational atmosphere, our members receive continuous training. You can find more information on European Nightlines here: http://nightlines.eu
The Nightline Munich was founded in 2010 by Munich’s students, based on the model of other Nightlines in Germany. Our members’ duties are the phone service, training of new members and anything related to the club. The Nightline Munich is a registered non-profit association. We are independent from any confession or institution.
If you want to support us use Boost to reach the online shop of your choosing. By doing so, the Nightline will receive a share of the revenue – this won’t cost you extra.
