A helpline offering a safe place to talk about anything that's on your mind, any time you like. 

The Samaritans are there to listen and offer support every day of the year. You don’t have to be suicidal to call them but if you are, they might be able to help. Calls can last as long as you choose, and you'll never be told what to do —the time is for you to talk through any feelings or worries that are troubling you.

This information will help us develop more personalised support for Londoners, and improve our service to all users. Please see our terms and conditions for more information.
