If you feel like you can't talk to anyone about problems in your life, please reach out and contact the Samaritans.
A new joint initiative has been launched that will see the Samaritans working together with the University of Sunderland. The Samaritans will be on campus on the first Monday of every month starting the 7th of October to discuss the subject of loneliness, located at 1st Floor Edinburgh Building, City Campus from 10.00am to 4.00pm.
Loneliness has been highlighted as one of the largest issues students' face during their time at university, so please come along to discuss any problems you may be having.
To book an appointment, email us at email@example.com or phone us at 0191 515 2933
Outside of these hours, the Samaritans are here to talk to you at any time that is convenient to you. Whether you want to email, call, or even write a letter, you will have someone to talk to about any problems you may be having.
Whether you have a small issue or a huge concern, the Samaritans offer a confidential service that offers advice on issues such as:

January the 20th has been deemed 'Blue Monday' by many for being the most gloomy day of the year. A combination of post-Christmas blues, cold dark nights, and the arrival of unpaid credit bills can have an effect on anyone. That's why the Samaritans are encouraging people to take part in their 'Brew Monday' events. It's free to sign up to, just order a kit and organise your own event at home, work, or University.
