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 in multiple communities to increase our impact, as suicide prevention cannot happen in a vacuum. Samaritans engages in local and national collaborative efforts and we are affiliated with accrediting bodies and helplines.
“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
