Minds Over Matter Fund

About

703,000 people die by suicide globally each year. That’s one person every 40 seconds, and for each death, there are another 20 attempts. Crisis lines are flooded, highlighting the concern and time-sensitive importance to respond. In recognition of World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10) and National Suicide Prevention Week (September 5-11 in the United States), Minds Over Matter has partnered with Brightfunds to highlight nonprofits that are improving suicide prevention and mental health care.

Central London Samaritans

Central London Samaritans, based in Soho, is the founding branch of the charity. We provide round the clock, non-judgmental emotional support for anyone who is struggling to cope. We listen, give people the time and space to work through their problems and find their own way forward. In the year 2018/19, our 400 Listening Volunteers responded to over 80,000 calls for help via phone, SMS and Email, supported over 4,000 contacts face to face, helped over 2,000 of London's most vulnerable people, including the homeless, the LGBT + community, those bereaved by suicide and people in prison. Our schools and university outreach programme raises awareness with young people and by working with businesses we are able to support and promote mental well-being in the workplace. We have never closed our phone lines since opening in 1953. It costs nearly £400,000 per annum to keep our phones and our door open. Our vision is that fewer people die by suicide.
