Whatever you’re facing, a Samaritan will face it with you. Every six seconds, Samaritans answer a call for help. We’re here, day or night, for anyone who’s struggling to cope, who needs someone to listen without judgement or pressure. Samaritans are not only for the moment of crisis, we’re taking action to prevent the crisis. We give people ways to cope with and the skills to be there for others. And we encourage, promote and celebrate those moments of connection between people that can save lives. We offer to listen and support to people and communities in times of need. In prisons, schools, hospitals and on the rail network, Samaritans are working with people who are going through a difficult time and training others to do the same.

Every life lost to suicide is a tragedy, and Samaritans’ vision is that fewer people die by suicide.

That’s why we work tirelessly to reach more people and make suicide prevention a priority.

Silent Solutions

For any emergency when you cannot talk, call 999 then press 55

The 999 emergency service has an additional service call Silent Solutions for times when you need emergency help, but cannot speak. The service works in the same way as calling 999. When the operator asks which emergency service you require, if you don’t say anything they will ask you to cough or make another noise like a tap on the handset. If it’s too risky to do this (for example,if you are hiding from an attacker), the operator will ask you to dial 55. This will then alert them to the face that no, you haven’t called 999 accidentally- and yes, you need urgent help. The system tracks your location using GPS and sends help.

The Silent Solution is a police system used to filter out large numbers of accidental or hoax 999 calls. It also exists to help people who are unable to speak, but who genuinely need police assistance. You will hear an automated police message, which lasts for 20 seconds and begins with ‘you are through to the police’.

The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) is leading a movement against suicide, the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK and the cause of 18 deaths every day.

Anyone can hit a crisis point. We run a free and confidential helpline and webchat– 7 hours a day, 7 days a week for anyone who needs to talk about life’s problems.
