here to listen.
The Samaritans on Cape Cod and the Islands is a nonprofit organization that provides support to people experiencing crises. Our mission is suicide prevention: we are dedicated to helping people contemplating suicide or personally affected by suicide. Our goal is to be a caring and compassionate listener who, through interaction in a safe and anonymous environment, can rekindle people’s lost sense of hope, de-escalate a situation from a crisis level, and provide the pathway that makes day-to-day living manageable.
There is nothing shameful about feeling suicidal. There may be pain, hopelessness, and feelings of isolation; but there never needs to be shame. And with help, there can be hope.
If you are in pain, in crisis, or feeling alone and would like someone to talk to, please call our crisis lines. We’re here to listen.
For those who may be struggling, grieving, or wanting to understand how to better support those in their lives, we have programs to help.
