Samaritans In Spain – “You Have Made Me Feel So Much Better”
There is nothing as rewarding as those words heard by a Samaritans’ Listener at the end of a call. Our confidential and non-judgmental emotional support service is not just for those who may be feeling suicidal. Be it addictions, bereavement, bullying, loneliness & isolation, relationship issues etc, our trained volunteers are there to listen and help them through.
Any English speaker of any age and nationality can make use of the service which started in Spain in 2005. It is anticipated that in 2019 alone, up to 3,000 contacts will be made to Samaritans in Spain. We offer a variety of ways in which people can get in touch:
FREEPHONE 900 525 100
Face-to-face at a Drop-In Centre.
