Yesterday, 24th July (24/7), was Samaritans Awareness Day. Samaritans is a unique charity dedicated to reducing feelings of isolation and disconnection that can lead to suicide. Their website says:
"Every six seconds we respond to a call for help.
Every year, we answer more than 5 million calls for help by phone, email, SMS, letter, face to face at one of our local branches and through our Welsh language service.
We're here 24/7, before, during and after a crisis.
Whether it's an 'are you ok?' at just the right moment, or the midnight support of a trained volunteer; whether it's better training in the workplace or campaigning for more investment in national and local suicide prevention – we're here.
Our charity works to make sure there's always someone there, for anyone who needs someone.
Every life lost to suicide is a tragedy, and Samaritans' vision is that fewer people die by suicide."
