Helplines and one-to-one support

Organisations such as the Samaritans are available 24 hours a day to talk to anyone who needs someone to talk to or is feeling under stress.  It can be reassuring to know that the Samaritans are available when no one else is contactable, for example during the night or weekends. Local contact numbers are listed below:
