BATH & DISTRICT SAMARITANS PROMOTE MESSAGE OF HOPE AND HELP

Monday 11th September 2017
The Bath Chronicle has told its readers about what Bath & District Samaritans are doing to help people in distress, despair, or contemplating suicide.

"While it often seems easier to keep your problems bottled up, talking to someone about what is troubling you can make a massive difference. That’s where the Bath and District Samaritans come in..." says the report, which also includes a short video clip of Branch Director, David Ryder, in the on-line version of the story.

To mark the WHO International Suicide Prevention Day, Bath's local paper - the Chronicle - visited the branch, met volunteers and spoke to Director David about how the entirely voluntary team of over 100 Samaritans in the Bath & District branch works to support people in despair, distress, or contemplating suicide.

It's easy - and free - to contact the Samaritans, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, by calling 116 123 from any phone.
