Story

Two years ago my brother Sammy took his own life, I now want to offer support to those facing a similar situation by developing a website and mobile app which offers 24/7 online support for mental health sufferers and their families.

Sammy

Sammy suffered with severe anxiety and depression and was a victim of cyber bullying, yet me, his best friend and brother had no idea how he was really feeling. Sammy kept his mental health to himself, but the signs were there. His sudden withdrawal and isolation was a sign that things were escalating and I only wish he had someone to talk to. This is how Talk To Sammy was born.

What is Talk to Sammy?

Talk To Sammy is a free website and app which will offer 24/7 online support to both sufferers of mental health issues and also their families. Talk To Sammy will be run by mental health professionals who will be on hand to offer support and someone to talk to anonymously when feeling down or needing help, advice or support with a loved one. The website and app will also include video stories of other people who have been through mental health issues and come out the other side as well as columns and advice from top mental health professionals.

How you can help..

If there had been someone that Sammy felt safe enough to talk to and someone that my family and I could talk to about the signs of Sammy's decline and how to help I believe Sammy would still be here today. I hope that Talk to Sammy can prevent even just one more life from being lost.

We are raising these funds to ensure the development and on going running of the Talk to Sammy platforms. Anything contributed will help hugely and I look forward to updating you with our progress soon.
