I think its:

Silence

While secrets are best kept -

Secrets are best kept silent

mine is shared for all -

The secret to silence is available to anyone (i.e. keep your mouth shut)

hear me and do despair -

Hearing silence can cause despair

but my words are not spoken

In silence, words are not spoken

You are

S.O.S.

While secrets are best kept -

S.O.S. is a code and some codes are secret codes

mine is shared for all -

All know what S.O.S. means, it's not secret

hear me and do despair -

If you hear ...---... then you know there's a problem

but my words are not spoken

The words Save Our Ships are abbreviated and not pronounced

I need Help with a riddle

"I need Help" is the meaning of S.O.S.

Is it

A Share / Trade Exchange display ( showing the Ups and Downs of market)

While secrets are best kept - mine is shared for all -

Performance of a share market is telecasted as well !

hear me and do despair -

In a bearish market, these kind of expressions are normal !!

but my words are not spoken

The words (and assoiciated indices / values) are not spoken, usually, they are displayed on screens.

I think I've come up with another possibility

Is it

Grades? (School, College, Uni, etc)

While secrets are best kept -

You often wish to keep your grades secret to avoid disgrace amongst friends and family.

mine is shared for all -

No matter what you wish for they are always published on report cards, class tables, etc.

hear me and do despair -

Most people who get bad grades do despair for the consequences.

but my words are not spoken

Again they are usually published onto paper so they can be read rather than being spoken.
