The charity of the month is Samaritans. Many of us are familiar with this charity and the amazing work they have been doing for years. This year, many charities like the Samaritans are working even harder to help people overcome mental health issues. Prior to 2020, Samaritans responded to a call for her every 7 seconds. Since the pandemic started, the charity now responds to a call for help every 6 seconds. It is wonderful to have charities like the Samaritans available to help those in need. This year has been hard for many with plenty of ups and downs. Those struggling with mental health issues will find it even harder. Many are struggling with isolation, anxious about their or their loved one’s health, worrying about the future, or are fighting on the frontline to save lives. All these have an impact on physical and mental health.
