The awareness day is held on 24th July of every year to represent Samaritans been accessible for 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. On this day all branches in the UK and Northern Ireland hold local and different events to raise awareness and funds. You can get involved in raising awareness by organising your own fund raising events, sponsoring events or participating in pre planned events.
The website has several resources on how you can help yourself or help your friends and family who may need some additional support.
The website also has a self help application that you can download. This enables you to document your moods and investigate if there is a potential pattern or trigger. The app allows you to create a safety plan with help and support to suit you and any issues you may have. It encourages you try different techniques and coping mechanisms to help you to control and connect with your emotions.
