PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide is the UK charity dedicated to the prevention of suicide and the promotion of positive mental health and emotional wellbeing in young people. We believe that no young person should have to struggle alone with thoughts of suicide.
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.
Our suicide prevention helpline, HOPELINEUK, is a free, confidential, non-judgmental space to talk openly about your thoughts of suicide with our trained advisers. We work with young people, concerned others and professionals via phone, text, email and webchat, every day.
From coping techniques to conversation starters, distraction techniques and dealing with anxiety, we have a broad range of help and advice resources for you to download.
Read about our latest fundraising events, campaigns and ways in which you can get involved. We shine a spotlight on some of our incredible fundraisers, flying the flag for Team PAPYRUS across the UK.
There are so many ways that you can get involved and raise funds for PAPYRUS so we can keep saving young lives. Your support helps us to keep our services running, offering a lifeline to young people at risk of suicide and creating suicide-safer communities across the UK.
We offer a range of suicide prevention training for individuals, workplaces and communities across the UK. From our free 30-minute SP-ARK session, to a two-day ASIST course, there are plenty of ways to create a suicide-safer environment where you are.
