Samaritans of Portsmouth and East Hampshire provides a much valued service to our local community. Our volunteers offer emotional support and a listening ear to anyone who is in despair, distress or experiencing suicidal feelings. We can be contacted by phone, email or text/SMS - or by visiting us at our centre in North End (no appointment required). We provide a confidential and non-judgemental listening service 24 hours a day - 365 days a year.
We have links with the mental health team at Queen Alexandra Hospital and a number of local GP surgeries who offer a referral to Samaritans to appropriate patients. We can then provide these individuals with emotional support during a difficult time in their lives. We are aiming to develop further partnerships of this sort.
In addition to our schools and talks programmes, we also provide an outreach service aimed at population groups at particular risk of suicide. We also work closely with Network Rail staff to reduce the level of suicides.
We need your help so we can continue to offer and expand our service.
If you would like to support us or train as a volunteer, please visit our website.
Thank you for your support and good luck!
Acting Director, Samaritans of Portsmouth and East Hampshire
