Hi Shantanu,

It sounds like there is still a lot on your mind at the moment, and I do hope you get some resolution on the issues concerning you. Of all the things you're worrying about at present, what do you think is your biggest concern?

I just wanted to clarify regarding the previous Samaritans email about 'getting the wheels in motion'. Samaritans are a listening service. We are here to help you talk through your problems, and hopefully by sharing what you're going through, it may make things a little easier to bear.

We will be here to listen for as long as you need us, but please do not wait in expectation of any specific action from us, beyond us continuing to respond to your emails.

You mention that you have an appointment with a psychiatrist on the 26th of May - this sounds like a positive thing, and though this is a while away, I hope that you can continue to hold on and await the more practical support that he will be able to offer. You say that you are feeling suicidal now, and may have a plan to end your life - would you like to tell us a bit more about any plans you have thought of? It can be difficult to share these kinds of feelings, but we are here to listen, and help you work through them.

Do write back whenever you feel ready Shantanu,



You can call Samaritans free on 116 123 day or night, 365 days a year, from any phone in the UK or Republic of Ireland. A trained volunteer will answer the phone as soon as they can.

When you email us, we aim to respond within 24 hours. This means it will usually be several hours before someone reads your email. If you need urgent support, we can respond more quickly if you call.
