Thousands on the march to prevent young suicide

30th August 2017

In the UK suicide is the main cause of death of all young people under 35. Every year around 1,600 take their own lives.

National charity PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide is calling on the nation to join its annual HOPEWalk to smash suicide stigma and raise awareness of the support it provides to young people when they are struggling.

Since the first HOPEWalk challenge in 2012, thousands of people have walked with family, friends and colleagues in the week around World Mental Health Day on 10th October. This year HOPEWalk will take place across the UK between 7th and 15th October.

In past years walks have taken place around local town centres, country parks, along coastlines, up hills and down dales. No matter where you walk you will be helping your local community to start a conversation about suicide and raising vital funds to help the charity deliver its life-saving services up, down and across the UK.

PAPYRUS needs volunteers in your area. Will you rise to the challenge to help save young lives?

 You will be supported by the PAPYRUS fundraising team. Please be a #HOPEWalkHero and call 01925 572 444 or email fundraising@papyrus-uk.org to register, or for more information.

 You could save a life.

Suicide is the biggest killer of young people - male and female - under 35 in the UK. Many thousands more attempt or contemplate suicide, harm themselves or suffer alone, afraid to speak openly about how they are feeling.

We are the national charity for the prevention of young suicide. We draw from the experience of many who have been touched personally by young suicide across the UK and speak on their behalf in our campaigns and in our work. We need more people who share our aims to join us to strengthen our voice - together we can save young lives.
