Samaritans annual awareness campaign is back this July

In 2022 there wasn’t a single second when Samaritans volunteers weren’t on the phone with someone.

24 July (24/7) is Samaritans Awareness Day, because they’re here to listen 24/7. On this date and throughout July, Samaritans will be running their awareness-raising campaign Talk to Us, to remind people that they’re here for anyone who needs someone to listen.

Every year in July, Samaritans branches in the UK and Republic of Ireland hold local events to raise awareness that Samaritans are here to listen to anyone who’s struggling to cope, at any time of the day or night.

To show our support, we will be raising awareness on social media, as well as marking Samaritans Awareness Day on 24 July.

If you’d like to get involved, you can help raise awareness this month by sharing Samaritans’ messaging on your own social media pages using #TalkToUs and #SamaritansAwarenessDay.

When life is difficult, Samaritans are there – day or night, 365 days a year. You can call them for free on 116 123, email them at, or visit to find your nearest branch.
