Small Talk Saves Lives

A little small talk can be all it takes...

Small Talk Saves Lives

Samaritans have partnered with British Transport Police, Network Rail and the wider rail industry to launch a new suicide prevention campaign. Small Talk Saves Lives asks commuters to trust their instincts and act if they notice someone who may be at risk of suicide in or around a station.

The campaign aims to give the public the tools to spot a potentially vulnerable person, start a conversation with them, and let them know support is available.

Signs someone may need help

  • Looking distant, withdrawn or upset
  • Standing alone or in an isolated spot
  • Staying on the platform for long periods of time/ failing to catch trains that stop
  • Someone looking out of place or a feeling that something isn't quite right
