YOU ARE NOT ALONE

Do you feel sad, lonely, hopeless, or suicidal? We’re here to listen to you, 24 hours a day.

Samaritans works to prevent suicide and support those who have lost someone to suicide. Each year, 300+ volunteers answer more than 75,000 calls and text messages on our Helpline.

If you need to talk to someone about how you’re feeling, grieve the loss of a loved one to suicide, or learn how to help others in crisis, you can find support with us.
