Founded in 1997 by a group of parents who had all tragically lost a child to suicide, PAPYRUS exists to reduce the number of young people who take their own lives by shattering the stigma around suicide. They support and equip young people and their communities with the skills to recognise and respond appropriately to suicidal behaviour.
PAPYRUS provides confidential support and advice to young people struggling with thoughts of suicide, as well as anyone worried about a young person through their helpline – HOPELINEUK and engages with communities and volunteers in suicide prevention projects, delivering training and awareness-raising programmes to individuals and community groups. They also aim to shatter the stigma that remains around suicide and shape national social policy making significant contributions to local and regional implementation of suicide prevention strategies.
PAPYRUS receives no central government funding and relies on donations to help them continue this valuable work.
A donation of just £5 pays to service one call, text or email to HOPELINEUK, which can help a young person stay safe from suicide. Just one call really could save a life.
