PAPYRUS is the only national charity dedicated to the prevention of young suicide. We exist to reduce the number of young people who take their own lives by equipping both them and their communities with the skills to recognise and respond to suicidal behaviour, to prevent, to intervene, and to encourage self-care.

Suicide is the single biggest killer of young people in the UK today. According to the ONS in this country last year over 1600 young people took their own lives, which equates to over 5 people dying by suicide every single day

Our helpline, HOPELINEUK provides confidential support and advice to young people and to anyone worried about a young person by telephone, text, email and webchat.

We offer a range of suicide prevention training and advice to communities and professionals to equip young people, their families and those that care for them with right tools to keep them safe.
PAPYRUS is also a campaign organisation and press for change using hard-hitting dynamic campaigns as well as continuing to present evidence to those in power so that lessons can be learned and that learning implemented to help save young lives.
