General Election 2015

28th April 2015

In January PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide wrote to the leaders of the Conservative, Labour, Liberal Democrat, Green and UK Independence parties inviting them to set out their approach in the forthcoming General Election to matters relating to young suicide. The letter from the Chairman and Chief Executive, shown in full below, sought their comment on some of the specific issues on which PAPYRUS campaigns and which it believes should be addressed in the fight to reduce suicide amongst young people.

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.
