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, our volunteers and staff answer more than 90,000 calls, texts, and chats on our Helpline, part of the national 988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline.
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.
Samaritans provides lifesaving suicide prevention services throughout Massachusetts. Our services are free, confidential, and nonjudgmental.
