PAPYRUS

PAPYRUS is the national charity dedicated to the prevention of young suicide. Suicide is the biggest killer of young people under the age of 35 in the UK. Every year many thousands more attempt or contemplate suicide, harm themselves or suffer alone, afraid to speak openly about how they are feeling.

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.
