About Samaritans of Yeovil, Sherbourne and District

Talk to us any time you like, in your own way, and off the record ΓΆ€“ about whatever's getting to you. You don't have to be suicidal.

Pathways Covered

Mental and physical health

Overview

We know that life can be unbelievably tough. We don't have a magic wand to make your problems disappear.

But, given the chance, many people are able to find a way through their problems themselves, if there is someone there giving them time and space to talk.

We can help you to explore your options and come to your own decisions about what's best for you. Our support may help you find your own way forward.

What we do

What can I speak to you about?

There’s no typical problem that people talk to us about. You can talk to us anything that’s making you feel bad.

Sometimes people call us because they are struggling to cope with a single problem that they have.

More often, people contact us because a number of problems have mounted up and they’re finding it hard to cope.

What matters to us is how your life is making you feel.

Our services (the phone lines, emails, letters and in branch) are manned by everyday people who volunteer for Samaritans. They’ve been through months of thorough training to qualify as a Samaritan, so they really know what they’re doing, and how best to help you, no matter what the issue is.

We are there to support you through all kinds of situations feelings and thoughts. What one person can take head on, may lead another person to struggle to cope.

You don’t have to be feeling suicidal to get in touch. Only I in 5 people who call us feel suicidal at the time. 

Sometimes just one call or email is not enough – and it doesn’t have to be. You can contact us as often as you need to. We are always here.
