Geographic areas served: Greater Boston, Metrowest
For more than thirty years, Samaritans has been dedicated to reducing the risk of suicide by befriending youth, adults and elders in crisis and educating the community with suicide prevention strategies. For many callers, the befriending support offered at Samaritans is extremely important in helping them cope with pressures in their lives. Community Education is another effective prevention program offered by Samaritans. By providing suicide prevention workshops to schools, youth and elder services, and other social service agencies, community gatekeepers are empowered to identify and intervene with peers or clients who are showing signs of suicide. Finally, Samaritans provides supportive services to those individuals, organizations and communities that have lost someone to suicide through our Survivor Support Services programs.
