Small Talk Saves Lives - Everyday small talk
Posted: Tue, 23 Jul 2019 10:54
You might not know it, but you already have all the experience you need to help save a life.
Because the small talk we use every day can be all it takes to interrupt someone's suicidal thoughts and start them on a journey to recovery.
So the Samaritans in partnership with Network Rail, British Transport Police and the wider rail industry, are making a simple ask …
If you see someone you think might need help, trust your instincts and start a conversation. You could help save a life.
For every life lost on the railways, six are saved by those around them.
Samaritans' vision is that fewer people die by suicide.
Every six seconds, somebody contacts Samaritans for help, but you don't have to be suicidal to call us.
Whatever you're going through, call us free any time, from any phone on 116 123.
