We’re here if you need us
For more than 50 years, Samaritans WA have been listening to and supporting others through life’s tough moments. We have helped countless people to find strength by talking it through.
Samaritans WA aims to help build communities in which people have appropriate support to explore how they feel and to build mental wellness.
We do this through providing Phone Support, Outreach Support and Training.
Every day, we respond to hundreds of calls for help. No judgement. No pressure. We're here for anyone who needs to talk.
Volunteer with us
Being a Samaritan means being there for people who need someone to listen. Last year over a hundred people volunteered their time with us.

This new service will support up to 300 young Western Australians aged 16 to 24 each year who are experiencing suicidal thoughts. Read more about the service here.
