The Samaritans charity is urging those who need help to reach out this July as part of a new campaign.
It says its volunteers are here around the clock to offer a listening ear to anyone who is struggling.
It is highlighting the power of talking as part of its annual 'Talk to Us' awareness campaign, which takes place throughout July.
Samaritans' volunteers spent over 100,000 hours responding to calls for help last year.
Aileen Spitere is acting regional director and volunteer at Cork Samaritans.
"It has been a challenging few years for everyone, and we know that many people are still facing all kinds of pressure.
"However, we want to remind the public that they are not alone.
"It doesn't matter how great or small the problems feel, our volunteers are here at any time of day or night - whatever they are facing.
"Now that the pandemic restrictions have lifted, many of our volunteers will be out and about to make sure people know that we are always available."
Several branches across the country are organising 7km walks or outreach events on July 24th, to mark Samaritans Awareness Day.
These include Athlone, Cork, Drogheda, Dublin, Ennis, Limerick and Sligo - as well as Belfast, Coleraine, Craigavon and Omagh in Northern Ireland.
In Kilkenny, volunteers will take part in a Dawn to Dusk walk on July 23rd.
Aileen adds: "Our volunteers are delighted to be back meeting people face to face and raising awareness of our service.
"We're urging anyone who sees Samaritans at events this month to join us and find out more about the branch and its work in the local area too."
