We call on the UK Government to help us support those who need our help.

10 September is World Suicide Prevention Day. 2015's theme was 'R U OK?'

We celebrated our 60th birthday in November 2013.

We're in your Corner

The We're in your Corner campaign is aimed at middle-aged men most at risk of suicide. Men account for 75% of all suicides.

U Can Cope

Open Minds Alliance CIC, Samaritans, the Royal College of Psychiatrists and Southwick Media Consultancy led the U Can Cope multimedia multiagency media campaign to support and promote the 2012 World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) on 10th September.

David's Way Round

David Exley, a Samaritans volunteer, tragically lost both his brother and his son to suicide. Over the summer 2012, David rode a motorbike over 6,000 miles across the UK and Republic of Ireland to help promote our Annual Awareness Day, 24:7. He visited all 201 branches of Samaritans during his 7-week whistle-stop tour.

Know the signs: Information on suicide and self-harm for parents

Every year over 590 young people take their own lives. This Samaritans leaflet helps parents identify children at crisis point, and helps guide them in what to do next.

Men on the Ropes

Part of a 5-year partnership with Network Rail to reduce suicides on the railway, this campaign is aimed at getting men talking about their feelings. This campaign was relaunched in 2016 as We Listen.
