Community Outreach

The staff and volunteers of The Samaritans on Cape Cod and the Islands are always available to provide educational presentations and suicide prevention materials to area businesses, community groups, and health and human services professionals. Whether it’s presenting at a Rotary club meeting at 6 a.m. or manning a booth on a Saturday night at the Barnstable County Fair, we believe every opportunity to work directly in the community helps strengthen our region’s ability to prevent suicides.

Our goal is to help community members understand that suicide knows no boundaries and that everyone is affected by this public health concern. Our hope is that by de-stigmatizing suicide, increasing awareness about suicide prevention strategies and warning signs, and by connecting people in crisis with much-needed resources that we will decrease the number of suicides in our community.

Please email us at if you, your community group, or business would like to learn more about suicide prevention and how to help save lives.
