Welcome to the
Samaritans of Bristol County's website.
Suicide Awareness Education is an important and effective suicide prevention tool.
Through our outreach program, The Samaritans provides education, training on identifying those at risk of suicide and suicide prevention strategies.
Teen Suicide is now thought to be the second leading cause of death for ages 15
through 19 and rising rapidly.
Suicide and the Elderly, those 65 and older, have the highest suicide rate of any age group in the United States.
