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, more than 300 volunteers answer over 75,000 calls and texts on our Helpline from people just like you.

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.
