Fewer people die by suicide is the mission of Samaritans, and with more people dying by suicide than work accidents in the construction sector, more needs to be done to support employers and employees.

BESA has partnered with Samaritans to achieve 2 objectives:

  • Increase awareness of mental health and provide resources tailored to our sector 
  • Provide support to the work that Samaritans do by appointing them as BESA's corporate charity partner as well as showcasing opportunities to support their work.

Here are the Samaritans contact details:

116 123 (UK)

116 123 (ROI)

They are open 24/7 and everything remains confidential.

Look out for more updates and initiatives coming soon.
