Mental Health Support for all

Suicide Awareness & Suicide Prevention


Welcome to SOS and to 2022.

We wish everyone a year filled with hope, light and happiness.ย  Even a tiny flicker of light provides hope.

Being a small charity brings huge challenges, not least, being able to serve the huge demand we’ve seen for our support services during 2021.

From 1/1/22, we have put more resources on to take your calls.

If you are in crisis, feeling vulnerable or need to talk about your mental health in general, then please get in touch via our helpline.
