Break the silence

Film & Campaign Description

Someone dies from suicide every 90 minutes. 

And Samaritans can only be there to listen with your help. 

When someone is struggling with suicidal thoughts, the silence of having no one to talk to can be excruciating. At Samaritans, we're here to listen 24 hours of the day

We can stop suicide, if we can break the silence. 


We believe that suicide can be prevented. 

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

We’re here every day and night of the year for anyone struggling to cope. We make sure people have somewhere to turn and support when they need it most. We work with communities to let people know we’re here for them and we campaign to make suicide prevention a priority.

Samaritans is a charity working across the UK and Ireland and we need donations to help fund our life-saving work.
