Samaritans Awareness Day is an annual campaign which is held on the 24th July (24/7), and is held to underline the importance of lending an ear to those who need some support, particularly with their mental health. The date represents that the Samaritans are there to help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The Samaritans is a foundation which was set up in the United Kingdom in the 50s and quickly became a hotline for people who were struggling and needed someone to talk to.
If you’d like to learn some more about what the Samaritans do, or for support, you can visit the Samaritans website: Talk To Us Campaign | Samaritans Campaigns.
If you would like to talk to someone, please call the Samaritans for free on 116 123, or you can email them on firstname.lastname@example.org.
