SAMARITANS SUICIDE PREVENTION CENTER AND CRISIS HOTLINE
The Samaritans is a not-for-profit suicide prevention center that has been in
existence in the Capital Region since 1985. As a chapter of Befrienders International,
The Samaritans offer four programs, free-of-charge: a confidential suicide and
crisis hotline, community prevention education programs, support groups for
people who have lost loved ones to suicide and community postvention. We welcome
UAlbany students in any of these capacities. Volunteering with The Samaritans
requires being a good listener. The 21-hour training program strengthens the
abilities of volunteers and their preparation as a crisis volunteer.
Students choosing to volunteer as a Samaritan can truly make a difference between
life and death for others who seek help.
