Samaritans are available 24 hours a day.
Common reasons to call Samaritans are:
Our volunteers provide emotional support to people in distress on the phone, face to face, by email and by letter.
We believe that being listened to in confidence, without fear of being judged, can be a huge relief and is often the first step in finding a way to cope. Being a Sam lets us do this.
Our volunteers don’t offer advice, because what works for one person might not work for you. But we do believe that given the time and space to work through problems or difficulties in confidence, everyone can find an inner strength that lets them find their own way forward.
If you need to email us for emotional support or an empathetic ear - firstname.lastname@example.org
