Every life lost to suicide is a tragedy, and Samaritans’ vision is that fewer people die by suicide. We believe that suicide is preventable.

Samaritans is here for anyone struggling to cope – day or night, 365 days a year. We take action to prevent people reaching crisis point, helping people find ways to cope and learn the skills to be there for others. We campaign to make suicide prevention a priority.

We've been supporting our local community since 1969, working towards a world where fewer people die by suicide.


  • Providing emotional support on the phone and via email for anyone who is struggling to cope, including those who have thoughts of suicide.
  • Being available to over 900,000 people in our three London boroughs of Lewisham, Southwark and Greenwich.
  • Reaching out to high risk groups and communities to reduce the risk of suicide, including through our work with the 999 Club.
  • Working in partnership with organisations, agencies and experts such as Oxleas and South London and Maudsley A&E Mental Health Team Partnerships.
