Southampton Samaritans offer confidential non-judgemental emotional support for people who are experiencing feelings of distress or despair, including those which could lead to suicide. We provide a 24/7 service for callers on the telephone, in person, via email and SMS (text). We offer callers the space to explore their feelings, including feelings of self-harm and suicide. We are here for all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, disability or ethnic background. We believe that being listened to in confidence, without fear of being judged, can be a huge relief and is often the first step in finding a way to cope.
