At Samaritans you can have a totally confidential conversation with someone you don't know can often feel easier than trying to talk to friends or family. That's why we're contacted 5.7 million times every year.
You don't have to be suicidal to contact us. People often call us because of:
- Relationship and family problems
- Loss, including loss of a job, a friend or a family member through bereavement
- Financial worries
- Job-related stress or overwork
- Body image issues
We're here round the clock, every single day of the year. We support anyone who needs us through 201 branches across the UK and Republic of Ireland and we know our service can help people before it's too late.
