Abstract

No one is immune from contemplating suicide, and the pressures of modern living may bring people to breaking point unless help is sought or offered. The Samaritans offer “befriending”, and volunteers are trained and experienced to answer calls from those who feel that life has become too much to bear. In the workplace, colleagues and personnel services should be more aware of individuals who are in need of help – especially Samaritan services – and should readily advise people to talk to their nearest branch volunteers.
