Samaritans Colchester
Description:

Whatever you’re facing, a Samaritan will face it with you. Every seven seconds, Samaritans answer a call for help. We’re here, day or night, for anyone who’s struggling to cope, who needs someone to listen without judgement or pressure.

Samaritans is not only for the moment of crisis, we’re taking action to prevent the crisis. We give people ways to cope and the skills to be there for others. And we encourage, promote and celebrate those moments of connection between people that can save lives. We offer listening and support to people and communities in times of need. In prisons, schools, hospitals and on the rail network, Samaritans are working with people who are going through a difficult time and training others to do the same.

The Colchester branch of Samaritans first opened its doors at Vineyard Street in May 1964, supporting the community in Colchester and the surrounding CO post code areas. In 2011 we moved to our current premises in Walsingham Road.

We currently have over 100 listening volunteers, some having been with us for over 40 years. We also have over 30 support volunteers who help with a vast range of duties to ensure the ongoing running of the branch. We open for around 70% of the hours in a week including through the night, supporting callers who contact us suffering with emotional distress and despair in a number of ways: by phone, email and also face-to-face.

We work in partnership with Essex Partnership University Trust, the Military Corrective Training Centre, Colchester Borough Council, Greater Anglia and Colchester Pride, as well as providing talks in schools, community and health groups. We also regularly travel to various parts of the community to help raise awareness and offer emotional support, including in Clacton, Harwich, Sudbury and Walton-on-the-Naze.

Sane
Description:

SANE was established in 1986 to improve the quality of life for people affected by mental illness, following the overwhelming public response to a series of articles published in The Times entitled The Forgotten Illness.

Written by the charity’s founder and chief executive, Marjorie Wallace, the articles exposed the neglect of people suffering from mental illness and the poverty of services and information for individuals and families.

SANE’s vision has remained consistent throughout its history: to raise public awareness; excite research; and bring more effective professional treatment and compassionate care to everyone affected by mental illness.

SANE is a UK-wide charity working to improve quality of life for people affected by mental illness. SANE has three main objectives linked to our aims and outcomes:

To raise awareness and combat stigma about mental illness, educating and fighting to improve mental health services.
To provide care and emotional support for people with mental health problems, their families and carers as well as information for other organisations and the public.
To promote and host research into the causes and more effective treatments of mental illness such as schizophrenia and depression and the psychological and social impact of mental illness.

SANE offers emotional support and information to anyone affected by mental health problems through our helpline, Textcare and our online Support Forum where people share their feelings and experiences.

These services are provided by our team of volunteers who undergo rigorous training and in many cases give hundreds of hours of their free time each year. Our Caller Care service led by professional staff provides ongoing support to help people alleviate a crisis phase or get through difficult circumstances.
