Talk to Us Day 2022
Published 21/07/2022
Every 10 seconds, Samaritans respond to a call for help. Their vision is to see fewer people die by suicide and can boast over 65 years of being there for anyone who needs someone. The organisation was founded by Vicar Chad Varah who, on 2nd November 1953, answered the first ever call to a brand new helpline for people contemplating suicide. According to Samaritans.org, Chad Varah said: "In an emergency the citizen turns to the telephone and dials 999. There ought to be an emergency number for suicidal people, I thought." From that first call, Samaritans grew. In December 1953 the Daily Mirror referred to Chad Varah as 'Telephone Good Samaritan', the name stuck. Samaritans is not a religious organisation and it relies on volunteers to do its good work. In February 1954 Chad handed over the running of the organisation to volunteers and thus Samaritans was born. To speak to Samaritans about your struggles and worries, or if you're concerned for somebody else, contact them by phone on 116 123, email them at jo@samaritans.org, or visit www.samaritans.org to find your nearest branch.

Why is death a taboo subject?
Published 18/07/2022
Death is something that everyone is familiar with, yet it is something rarely spoken about. The one thing that is certain about life is that it ends - everyone will die someday. It seems silly not to talk about something that happens to everyone eventually. It also makes it difficult when we’re grieving someone we’ve lost, as we feel like we can’t talk about it.

How music can trigger your memories
Published 14/07/2022
Music sits side by side with our experiences, forming emotive connections that stay with us throughout our lives. Research shows that listening to a song that was played during a significant life event, such as a wedding or funeral, can trigger a deeply nostalgic emotional experience. Even a seemingly insignificant time in our lives can be recalled in a meaningful way when associated with a particular piece of music. Whenever I hear Uptown Girl by Billy Joel., I am transported back to my dad’s car as a child. I can recall small details like the grey leather seats, and the rickety window levers, that otherwise would surely be lost forever. As we age, our explicit memory fades, but our implicit memory is more enduring and can last a lifetime. Implicit memories are our unconscious and automatic memories. For example, playing a musical instrument, or recalling the words to a song when someone sings the first few words. A large part of memory takes place in the unconscious mind.
