Samaritans support anyone in distress, around the clock, through 201 branches across the UK and Republic of Ireland. We know our service can help people before it’s too late. But we’re a charity, and it’s your kind donations that keep our helpline open.
Samaritans vision is that fewer people die by suicide. We work to achieve this vision by making it our mission to alleviate emotional distress and reduce the incidence of suicide feelings and suicidal behaviour.
We do this by being available 24 hours a day to provide emotional support for people who are experiencing feelings of emotional distress or despair, reaching out to high risk groups and communities, working in partnership with other organisations, agencies and experts, and influencing public policy and raising awareness of the challenges of reducing suicide.
