Every 14 hours someone in Massachusetts dies by suicide.
It often leaves family and loved ones in shock, wondering “Why?” Too many families have suffered this painful loss, but there is hope. Suicide can be prevented. You can help save lives by supporting Samaritans’ Marathon Team today.
Trained volunteers listen day and night offering support to people who are struggling or feeling suicidal on our call or text Helpline.
Our SafePlace meetings and Survivor to Survivor visits help those who have lost a loved one to suicide deal with the unique grief of a suicide loss.
Samaritans’ free Suicide Prevention Workshops - in schools, businesses, and community groups - teach teens and adults how to recognize that someone might be suicidal and how to help themselves, a friend, classmate, or co-worker.
Thanks to the TCS New York City Marathon Charity Program, this is the first year that Samaritans will be participating. All funds raised by our runners will benefit Samaritans' suicide prevention services. To learn more about Samaritans and suicide prevention, visit us at samaritanshope.org.
Read some of the stories from our team members, give, and help spread the word! YOU can help save a life!
