Who are we?
Samaritans are available 24 hours a day 365 days a year. We can be contacted by phone, email and SMS so that we’re there when you need us. We listen to you and help you talk through your worries and troubles. We’re not afraid to explore difficult areas with you. Samaritans don’t judge, keep things anonymous and all conversations are confidential. Sharing your troubles with someone who gives you time, attention and tries to see things from your point of view can be a relief and comfort. In fact, just knowing someone is there in case you need them can make you feel better. By listening to you and talking through your troubles, we may help you see things more clearly. We help people to explore their options and support them in making their own decisions.
Importance of Limerick Mental Health Week
John Downey, Director – Samaritans,
“Samaritans are delighted to be part of Limerick Mental Health Week. It is important to generate discussion, to reduce the stigma around mental health and promote positive mental health and wellbeing. It also serves to highlight the range of supports available within the local community to support our mental health.”
