Talk To Us
Talk To Us is our annual awareness-raising campaign.
Samaritans are challenging the UK to become better listeners by sharing expert tips on how to be a better listener. Throughout July, Samaritans branches are also holding events throughout the UK and Ireland to raise awareness of the services they offer in their local communities. Visit your local branch website to see what they're doing during Talk To Us.
We want to encourage people to listen to the important things their friends, family and colleagues have to say, so we've created five helpful tips - called SHUSH - to help people become better listeners.
From high streets to hair salons, supermarkets to stations, Samaritans has got the nation working on its listening skills for #TheBigListen.

Why talk to us?
Samaritans' vision is that fewer people die by suicide. Every six seconds, someone contacts Samaritans, and every 90 minutes someone takes their own life.
You don't have to be suicidal to call Samaritans. Whatever you're going through, you can call us free any time, from any phone, on 116 123.
