Just a phone call away but it makes a huge difference

The Samaritans are here to listen, no matter how disturbing or ordinary the problem may seem. We do not give advice, or tell you what to do. We are here to offer unconditional emotional support.

Because we know emotional distress does not discriminate or choose its time, we are always here for our callers, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.   Because suicide continues to be one of the leading causes of death in Hong Kong, we have to do as much as we can, despite limited resources, to raise emotional health awareness and to encourage people in need to seek emotional support.   People
