Mission Vision Values
PAPYRUS exists to reduce the number of young people who take their own lives, by shattering the stigma surrounding suicide and equipping young people and their communities with the skills to recognise and respond to emotional distress. We believe that no young person should have to struggle alone with thoughts of suicide.
PAPYRUS envisions a society which speaks openly about suicide and has the resources to help young people who have suicidal thoughts.
Our values and beliefs
PREVENTION: Many young suicides are preventable.
PASSION: Those who are touched personally by a young suicide have a unique contribution to make to our work.
HOPE: No young person should have to suffer alone with thoughts or feelings of hopelessness, and nobody should have to go through the heartbreak of losing a young person to suicide.
LEARNING: Everyone can play a role in preventing young suicide
