Cheltenham Town players have shown their support for World Suicide Prevention Day, which is taking place today across the planet.
The club works closely with the charity Samaritans who do fantastic work aimed at providing emotional support to anyone in emotional distress, struggling to cope, or at risk of suicide throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland.
Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 50. Men can sometimes find it really hard to admit they are having trouble coping and can be reluctant to seek help, so the local Cheltenham and District branch of the Samaritans has joined forces with Cheltenham Town to raise awareness of the services the local Samaritans can offer.
It is a rare person who can go through life without having to face problems that can cause emotional stress or crisis and find the need to turn to another human being for support.
It is easy to get in touch with the Samaritans by telephoning free on 116 123 or by face to face contact at the local branch: Victoria House, Back Albert Street, Pittville in Cheltenham GL52 2HN, or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
They are available day or night throughout the year.
