The work Papyrus do centres around three key principles; Support Equip and Influence.
Papyrus provide confidential support and advice to young people struggling with thoughts of suicide, and anyone worried about a young person through their helpline, HOPELINEUK (0800 068 41 41).
Papyrus engage communities and volunteers in suicide prevention projects and deliver training programmes to individuals and groups. This includes equipping local councils, healthcare professionals and school staff with suicide prevention skills.
Papyrus aim to shape national social policy and make a significant contribution to the local and regional implementation of national suicide prevention strategies wherever we can. Their campaigning comes from their passion as individuals, parents, families and communities who have been touched personally by young suicide. They press for change in many places using hard-hitting and dynamic campaigns as well as presenting evidence to those in power so that lessons can be learned and learning implemented to help save young lives.
