PAPYRUS (prevention of young suicide)
What we do
- Provide confidential help and advice to young people and anyone worried about a young person
- Help others to prevent young suicide by working with and training professionals
- Campaign and influence national policy
Every year over 1600 young people take their own lives in the UK. Many thousands more contemplate suicide; many harm themselves or suffer alone, afraid to speak openly about how they are feeling.
PAPYRUS exists to give young people hope and to prevent young suicide.
We draw from the experience of many who have been touched personally by young suicide across the UK and speak on their behalf in our campaigns and in our endeavours to save young lives.
