MIKE NUDD – SAMARITANS

  • MIKE HAS BEEN A SAMARITAN FOR TEN YEARS 

  • WE PROVIDE EMOTIONAL SUPPORT TO THOSE WHO NEED IT 

  • VISION IS TO REDUCE SUICIDE 

  • VOLUNTEERS ARE BUSY WORKING 24/7 365 DAYS A YEAR

  • 1 IN 3 CALLS ARE ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS 

  • PHONE CALLS CENTRE ON A NEED FOR HUMAN CONTACT 

  • LONELINESS, ISOLATION, UNEMPLOYMENT, DEPRESSION AND OCD ARE ALL ISSUES FOR OUR CALLERS

  • WE ANSWER CALLS FROM THE UK AND THE IOM

  • VOLUNTEERS HAVE STEPPED UP TO MAINTAIN SHIFT PATTERNS

ASHY  “THANKS FOR EVERYTHING YOU AND THE TEAM HAVE DONE. THE WORK IS MUCH APPRECIATED”

QUESTIONS 

THERE WILL BE NEW DECISIONS AT THE END OF NEXT WEEK ABOUT CARE HOME RESTRICTIONS

THE MANX BUBBLE NEEDS TO REMAIN IN PLACE FOR A WHILE. NOT READY TO TAKE A STEP ON BORDERS

TESTING WILL NEED TO CONTINUE AS LONG AS PEOPLE ARE PRESENTING WITH SYMPTOMS 

NO EVIDENCE OF INCREASE IN SUICIDES

SAMARITAN VOLUNTEERS HAVE REALLY STEPPED UP

IF SOMEONE IS STRUGGLING WITH MENTAL HEALTH, THE EMOTIONAL WELL BEING OF AN INDIVIDUAL PLUMMETS. IF THAT IS OUT OF THE NORM THEN THERE IS AN ISSUE

SAMARITANS LISTEN TO AND ENCOURAGE CALLERS TO FIND THEIR OWN SOLUTION 

DON’T BE AFRAID TO HAVE A HEART TO HEART WITH SOMEONE IF YOU THINK THEY’RE STRUGGLING. IT’S GOOD TO TALK

ASHY’S FOCUS IS ON THE IOM. WE SHOULDN’T BE DISHING OUT ADVICE TO OTHER NATIONS 

CLOSING 

MORE CHANGES ARE COMING NEXT WEEK 

DRIVE RESPONSIBLY WHEN THE SPEED LIMITS CHANGES 

MANX SOLUTIONS (YOU KNOW THE REST)

GET OUT THERE AND SHOP LOCAL 

BE MINDFUL OF OUR COLLECTIVE WELLBEING 

FIRMLY OF THE VIEW THAT WE HAVE EMERGED STRONGER 

COMMUNITY SPIRIT IS THE ONE 

THERE IS NOTHING WE CANNOT ACHIEVE
