The Listening Place

Face-to-face support for those who feel life is no longer worth living.

Carefully trained and selected volunteers, working in a supportive environment and backed by experienced mental health professionals, have regular meetings with our Visitors who are struggling with suicidal thoughts, plans and actions.

We provide fortnightly sessions, based on active listening and befriending: building trust and a supportive relationship, usually for 3 month period. Our impact measurement shows that this helps people with suicidal thoughts to openly discuss, examine and reflect on their situation with a warm and supportive Volunteer.
