At the last meeting Chris from Samaritans gave a talk about the work of the charity. The Stockport branch is based in the Heatons Centre, next to the Library. The mission of the Charity is to reduce the number of people who die by suicide. However, many people are not suicidal when they ring, they are distressed, have mental illness or need to talk through a significant decision in their lives. People also send emails, texts and occasionally call into the branch. Everybody in the Branch is a volunteer.
Chris gave tips on how individuals and businesses could help to keep each other mentally fit.
Samaritans for Stockport would welcome donations from businesses, either financial gifts, raffle prizes or help in kind to continue their work and train new volunteers.
