Samaritans' Latest Campaign Highlights How Small Talk Can Save A Life

A new campaign from Samaritans, British Transport Police (BTP) and Network Rail aims to encourage commuters to act if they think a fellow passenger may be at risk of suicide on the railways, highlighting how small talk has the power to save a life.

For every life lost on the railway, six are saved by the actions of those around them and the Small Talk Saves Lives campaign demonstrates what the public can do to help, illustrated by Sarah’s story in the charity’s latest film.

The film has gained widespread attention since it’s launch with over 2 million views online. The campaign has been covered by BBC Breakfast, Sky News, The Guardian, Huffington Post, Evening Standard and PR Week. The campaign’s creative has been led by Pegasus, with the film shot by director Matt Hopkins of The Progress Film Company.
