World Suicide Prevention Day with the Samaritans
Today is World Suicide Prevention Day and we are thrilled to have had two representatives from Samaritans sit down with Jenna (who herself is a listening volunteer for the charity) and discuss the importance of this awareness day and what the Samaritans do to support people in need. Norman Holmes is the Branch Director of the Plymouth Samaritans Branch and Joe Walcott is the charity's national Military Programme Project Manager.Over the coming months, Samaritans will be launching a special app for veteran's and military personnel who are transitioning into the civilian world. We will be working with Samaritans to offer feedback and support in the development of the app, alongside a multitude of other charity partners. Any feedback you may have will be incredibly helpful for us all, so please get in touch once the app launches and let us know your thoughts.If you're struggling emotionally and would like to talk to someone with no judgement, the Samaritans can be contacted 24/7 on 116 123. They really are there to help.
