Help is out there for anyone feeling suicidal or depressed or lonely.
Mental health charity Samaritans recorded its busiest ever year in 2014 after it introduced a free phone service.
The organisation answered more than 470,000 phone calls, 12,000 emails and 8,000 text messages over the past 12 months, according to its Impact Report for Ireland.
The Samaritans helpline is free to call on 116 123.
If you just want to talk to someone, then please make that call today.
One volunteer told us: “We are there to listen 24 hours a day. This can be a very difficult time for many people and we recognise that.”
