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.

We run a 4 week drama activities project each May. This, at the request of our Veterans, leads to the tour of a play devised by the Veterans together with the actors, both professional and volunteer drama students.
Most of the Veterans we work with have mental health issues such as PTSD, and we have considerable success in improving their lives.
We also run weekly drama workshops which have a strong sociable element to them. This means that we can provide support for our Veterans throughout the year, and Veterans who cannot cope with a 4 week commitment can still be involved. We will be working with schools in the Tayside area to create short scenarios that we will perform to the schools in order to raise discussions about mental health issues.
We work in a way that revives skills that our Veterans already possess: courage, a sense of family, communication skills, a sense of humour, focus on a task, team work etc – skills that are in fact all common to drama work. We then add in the creative and imaginative context of the work and staff. All of this takes place in a safe and secure environment that we take time to build.
We work in partnership with Legion Scotland, Veterans First Point, Combat Stress, Step Together, Help for Heroes Band of Brothers/Sisters, Dundee Council and the Dundee and Angus College.
