Who Are The Samaritans?

The Samaritans is a UK-based charity that offers emotional support to anyone feeling distressed, struggling to cope, or experiencing suicidal thoughts. They provide a confidential and non-judgemental space for people to express their feelings and receive support, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

  • Highlighting Essential Services: This day brings attention to the crucial services offered by The Samaritans, which include a helpline, email support, and local branches where individuals can receive face-to-face support.
  • Encouraging Community Engagement: Raising awareness encourages communities to support The Samaritans’ mission through volunteering, fundraising, or spreading information about available resources.
  • Reducing Stigma: By promoting discussions about mental health and emotional well-being, Samaritans Awareness Day helps to reduce the stigma associated with seeking help, encouraging more people to reach out when they need it.
