Talk to Us - Supporting Samaritans
Throughout July, Samaritans will be running its annual awareness-raising campaign, Talk to Us. The campaign aims to let people know that Samaritans volunteers are here 24/7 for anyone who is struggling to cope.
In 2021 Samaritans volunteers spent over one million hours responding to calls for help.
To show our support, we will be raising awareness on social media throughout July, as well as marking Samaritans Awareness Day on 24 July.
If you’d like to get involved, you can help raise awareness this month by sharing Samaritans’ messaging on your own social media pages using #TalkToUs and #SamaritansAwarenessDay.
When life is difficult, Samaritans are there – day or night, 365 days a year. You can call them for free on 116 123, email them at firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.samaritans.org to find your nearest branch.
