The story is that Chad (a vicar at the time) was so moved by the death of a young girl who had taken her own life when she started menstruating for the first time.
She took her life tragically through ignorance (due to poor education and bad parenting) the girl was so alarmed and felt she had done something wrong.

It seems slightly odd that the place he's remembered along with the service he started is the Science Museum (London Kensington) - I suppose technology in the form of Telephone is an important part of the Samaritans service.
Samaritans now offer their service through a variety of means including email, SMS and face-to-face.
