About ‘Samaritans’

Talk to Samaritans any time you like, in your own way, and off the record – about whatever’s getting to you. You don’t have to be suicidal. What happens when you contact varies slightly depending on whether you call, email, text, write or talk to us face-to-face. But their approach to supporting you stays the same. A volunteer will answer, you talk and they listen, and end the conversation when you are ready to. If you have any concerns about our service before you try it, hear from others about how we've helped them. Please don’t suffer alone.

This service is part of the organisation called Samaritans
