Suicidal? feeling you can’t cope? – our volunteers won’t judge, they will listen.
Befrienders listen to people who are lonely, despairing or considering suicide. They don’t judge them, don’t tell them what to do.
They listen. That may not sound much – but it can make the difference between life and death.
People who feel suicidal are often so focused on a particular problem or pain that they find it difficult to see a way forward.
Talking openly to a befriender, in a safe and confidential environment, can help.
By listening to a suicidal person, a befriender helps them to listen to themselves.
