Many of us struggle to acknowledge when our worries are getting on top of us. A gift of £10 could help SAMH encourage someone to open up about their feelings, before their anxieties get too much for them.

When someone is thinking about suicide, family or friends are often the front line of care. £25 could enable SAMH provide expert support to a mum, to give her the confidence to help her child open up about feeling suicidal.

Sometimes it really helps to know you're not alone. A gift of £100 could help SAMH bring people experiencing mental health problems together - opening up in a supportive group can be a great way to gain some confidence and start to look to the future.

Texts will cost £10 plus one message at your standard network rate. SAMH will receive a minimum of £9.94 of your donation. You will receive two text messages following your donation.
