The GAA announced today a new partnership with Samaritans aimed at tackling the stigma associated with mental health while also encouraging members experiencing challenging times to avail of the charity’s 24-hour 365 days-a-year helpline. While their vision remains that fewer people should die by suicide, you do not have to be contemplating self-harm to call Samaritans. People contact the helpline about everything from depression, relationship and family issues to loneliness, physical and mental health issues, abuse, financial worries and much more. A problem shared is a problem halved. You are never alone when Samaritans are there.
