Samaritans Awareness Day


24/07/23 to represent 24/7 – Samaritans Awareness day was planned on this day to represent that they are available to talk to 24 hours a day. On this day different branches across the UK and Northern Ireland hold different local events to raise awareness to not only suicide but to the support the Samaritans have for all.

Although the awareness day is held on this specific date, Samaritans hold campaigns throughout the year to help raise awareness of how they can help. You can get involved in raising awareness by organising your own fund raising event, sponsoring events or participating in pre planned events.

The website is a useful way to find out how you can help yourself or your friends or family who may need your help and support.

They also have a self help app that you can download which enables you to document your moods and investigate if there is a potential pattern or trigger. The app allows you to create a safety plan with help and support to suit you and any issues you may have. It enables you to try techniques and introduce different coping mechanisms. Please use this link below to find out if this app could be beneficial to you.
