Over 200 volunteers drawn from across the community and from all walks of life come together to support the people of our community whenever they need us. Since 1961, Samaritans has served the people of Greater Belfast and beyond. We're open every day - 24/7 by phone, email and text. Our door opens 9am-10pm every day of the year.
This training up-skills its participants to understand emotional wellbeing and build resilience for their own mental health. It discusses a range of topics including stigma, signs and symptoms of mental ill health, coping strategies, engaging with others about mental health, supports, and self-care. Our mission is to take the mental health struggle out of the shadows and support organisations to engage with their staff and clients to improve their emotional wellbeing.
