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.
Thank you to all our amazing walkers and supporters who showed up at our walk on a rainy, windy and chilly day to show how much they support our cause and the important work we do everyday at The Samaritans. Our Volunteers, Supporters, Executive Director, Board Members and Donors are truly the BEST. Thank you to Bill Sullivan our Walk Chairman and his family along with all our amazing volunteers who all pitched in on our special day.
