In the community
The Samaritans reach out and offer their expertise and experience by providing educational speakers for community education on issues relating to mental health concerns, depression and suicide.
We try to raise awareness of what we, as a community, can do to help create a world where fewer people die by suicide.
Our experienced speakers educate others on the following topics:
- The Samaritans as a suicide prevention agency
- Warning signs, risk factors, myths and facts associated with suicide
- The value of listening
- effective listening skills that can be used for peer support
If you are a parent, teacher, student or represent an agency or community group, you will benefit from listening to a Samaritans speaker.
If you would like to request a speaker or enquire further about our Community Outreach Program services, please call (08) 9381 5725.
The Samaritans wouldn’t be here without the generous support of individuals, the wider community and businesses. The donations we receive allows us to provide crucial 24/7 Anonymous Crisis Support to Australians dealing with feelings of depression, sadness, loneliness and despair.
