We help everyone in Ireland who may be struggling or looking for support with any issue: mental illness, abuse & domestic violence, anxiety, bullying, depression, eating & body image, family issues, gambling, gender & sexual identity, grief & loss, loneliness, parenting, pregnancy & abortion, relationships, school or work issues, self-harm, sexual abuse, stress, substance use, suicide, supporting a friend or family member, physical illness, trauma & PTSD. Samaritans do not give advice or information. People call us for many different mental health, crisis and behavioural health reasons. Regardless of what you are experiencing, we can support you. Talking with us is free. When you contact us you will talk with one of our friendly and supportive volunteers who will listen to you with empathy and understanding, and work together with you to find a meaningful way forward. They are experienced in knowing how to help people who have challenges like what you are going through. Anyone may call and get support. We help everyone, regardless of age, gender, religious views, or nationality. We recognise that difficult mental health or crisis experiences can happen at any time, so we are available 24 hours a day, every day of the week.
