PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide

PAPYRUS is a national charity dedicated to the prevention of young suicide. We exist to reduce the number of young people who take their own lives by shattering the stigma around suicide and equipping young people and their communities with the skills to recognise and respond to suicidal behaviour. SUPPORT: We provide confidential support and advice to young people struggling with thoughts of suicide, and anyone worried about a young person through our helpline, HOPELINEUK. EQUIP: We engage communities and volunteers in suicide prevention projects and deliver training programmes to individuals and groups. INFLUENCE: We aim to shape national social policy and make a contribution to the local and regional implementation of national suicide prevention strategies wherever we can. Our campaigning comes from our passion as individuals, parents, families and communities who have been touched personally by young suicide. We press for change using hard-hitting and dynamic campaigns as well as presenting evidence to those in power so that lessons can be learned and learning implemented to help save young lives.
