We are hosting a Building Suicide-Safer Schools and Colleges Day Conference as part of our Save the #ClassOf2018 campaign.
Date: Saturday 29 September 2018
Venue: Baden-Powell House, 65-67 Queen's Gate, South Kensington, London, SW7 5JS
Over 200 school children die by suicide every year in the UK. Among 15-19 year olds, the rate of suicide is increasing. PAPYRUS wants to address this head on but we need your help and that of every school and college in the land.
On World Suicide Prevention Day on 10 September 2017, PAPYRUS launched the ‘Save the Class’ campaign which aimed to raise awareness of suicide within our school communities. We created our Building Suicide-Safer Schools and Colleges: A Guide for Teachers and Staff, a first of its kind, to support education services in suicide prevention, intervention and “postvention”.
This September, we want to show you what has been achieved already with our Save the #ClassOf2018 campaign. We need to learn from education establishments across the UK. Hopefully too, you will learn how to equip all those who work with you in supporting children with the tools they need to identify young people at risk and how to keep them and their community suicide-safer. During the event, we will learn from you and you will learn from us. Speakers will include myself and Dick Moore from the Charlie Waller Memorial Trust, Mary Nightingale and Professor Mark Bailey.
We are reaching out to parents, families, schools and colleges, health professionals, youth workers, faith communities and anyone who wants to give children and young people a healthy future. Please support us with this event. Let people know about it. Show your support for our Save the #ClassOf2018. Your support and your attendance may well help to save a young life.
