York Branch Information

We help and support thousands of people every year in the York area and currently have 136 listening and non-listening members, either trained or in training.

Just some of our services include supporting the university with anonymous and confidential drop-ins on campus, talking to young people in and around schools in the city about looking out for their emotional wellbeing, having a presence at street parties and festivals.

The Yorkshire and Humberside Region of Samaritans launched a Rural Support initiative in 2019, in partnership with the Yorkshire Agricultural Society, aimed at reducing incidences of suicide and alleviating mental ill-health amongst the rural community.
