PAPYRUS is the national charity dedicated to the prevention of young suicide.

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

Our Vision

Our vision is for a society which speaks openly about suicide and has the resources to help young people who may have suicidal thoughts.

Our Mission

We exist to reduce the number of young people who take their own lives by shattering the stigma around suicide and equipping young people and their communities with the skills to recognise and respond to suicidal behaviour.

Our Beliefs and Values:

Beliefs that guide our thinking:

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: There are always lessons to be learned from listening to young people at risk of suicide, those who give them support and those who have lost a young person to suicide.

HOPELINEUK is a confidential support and advice service for:
  • Children and Young People under the age of 35 who are experiencing thoughts of suicide
  • Anyone concerned that a young person could be thinking about suicide
