Samaritans launches campaign to help prevent rail suicides

Commuters are being urged to help prevent suicides on the rail network by striking up conversations with vulnerable people.

A new campaign has been launched to promote the message that suicidal thoughts can be temporary and interrupted by a simple question.

The Small Talk Saves Lives initiative commissioned a survey of 5,000 passengers which found that the majority are willing to play a role in stopping suicides.
