You can talk to Samaritans at any time of the day or night.

Samaritans volunteers listen in confidence to anyone in any type of emotional distress, without judging or telling people what to do.

Samaritans doesn’t offer advice, but by encouraging people who contact us to talk about their feelings we are able to help them explore all the options they have. Samaritans believes that given the time and space to work problems or difficulties through in confidence, people can find an inner strength and perspective which lets them find their own way forward.

Common reasons to call Samaritans are:

    Relationship and family problems
    Loss, including loss of a job, a friend or a family member through bereavement
    Financial worries
    Job-related stress or overwork
    College or study related stress
    Body image issues

Volunteers offer support by responding to phone calls, emails and letters. Alternatively, you can often drop in to a branch to have a face to face meeting. In Galway City the usual hours to receive callers at the door are 9am - 8pm
