PAPYRUS is delighted to announce that Norman Lamb MP is a new Patron of the charity.
Norman is MP for North Norfolk and is a Liberal Democrat. He served as Caring Services Minister in the Coalition Government until May 2015 and played a significant and lead role in the National Suicide Prevention Strategy for England (2010).
Norman has given several key speeches about mental health and specifically about suicide in recent times, not least as Chair of the Mental Health Commission for the West Midlands Combined Authority. He has also spoken publicly of his personal connections to mental illness and suicide.
“I believe that whenever someone takes their own life through suicide it is not just a tragedy – it should be a reminder that we must work towards a system where this simply does not happen. This is something we can achieve. Together we can save thousands of lives.” Norman Lamb MP
We look forward to working closely with this great champion of young people’s mental health and wellbeing in the years to come.
