Story

Here is the YouTube link to hear the song:  

https://youtu.be/fWaOr8_qzLM

This song was written to raise awareness of the responsibilities and the stress that healthcare professionals experience every day on behalf of us all. The idea for the song came originally from talking with Junior Doctors, but as the project developed it became apparent that the words also resonated with others working outside the medical profession and that the song worked at many levels. The Samaritans have kindly agreed to endorse this charity record.

The song was launched on World Mental Health Day (10 October). This  is a day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy against social stigma. This annual awareness programme seeks to bring attention to mental illness and its major effects on peoples' lives worldwide

The song also raises money for the Samaritans; all donations go to the charity.

Stand Together is a group of songwriters and musicians based in SE England.

Note: Samaritans is available round the clock, every single day of the year, for anyone who is struggling to cope. You can call Samaritans for free from any phone on 116 123, email them at jo@samaritans.org or visit samaritans.org to find details of your nearest branch.
