Why are Samaritans here? - One in ten teenagers is affected by depression - Samaritans receives contact from someone in distress every seven seconds - which comes to 4.6 million a year. 64,000 of these contacts are made by email - 38% of people admit to feeling depressed by stresses from work, family or finances. One in ten feels so lonely and isolated they think there is no one they can turn to for help - One in four of us knows someone, personally, who has died by suicide - Two young people self-harm every hour in the UK. 427 people self-harm every day Our vision is for a society where fewer people die by suicide. Please help us turn that into a reality. Why you are so important By donating today, you will help us better reach the communities we serve - over 1 million people who live and work in west London. With better facilities, we can create more qualified volunteers than ever before, and we can support more callers as and when they need us - day and night.
