WORKING TOGETHER TO PREVENT SUICIDE
We envision a society in which fewer people die by suicide. To accomplish this vision, we collaborate with and leverage the strengths of many organizations and individuals to increase our impact, as suicide prevention cannot happen in a vacuum. For more information on each organization, click on their link below.
There are a number of organizations leading the charge for suicide prevention nationally. These organizations conduct research, promote public policy, build awareness, develop capacity, and provide community support. The relationships we have with the organizations below influence our own policies and best practices.
Suicide prevention efforts globally, nationally, and locally require collaboration between accrediting bodies, regional coalitions, and crisis centers. We’re proud to be a member of the following organizations.
Other U.S. Samaritans locations
There are many different Samaritans offices all over the world. While we are run independently and not affiliated with the other offices, we do share a common mission of befriending those in need. There are seven U.S. locations of Samaritans, including our Boston location. The others are listed below.
We are proud to be one of many nonprofits who are working hard to improve lives for people across the state and country. In particular, the organizations listed below are nonprofits that we have established excellent working relationships with and whose missions align with our own.
“One of the things that I feel great about is when Samaritans can go out to schools, to nonprofit agencies, to religious institutions and let kids know they aren’t alone and that there are other people that care, especially when you’re having a tough time.”
Michael Durkin, President of United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley & Samaritans Council Member
