PAPYRUS – Prevention of Young Suicide

< Back to directory


Many thousands of people contemplate suicide; many harm themselves or suffer alone, afraid to speak openly about how they are feeling.  Papyrus works to prevent suicide in people aged 15-35 years and to give young people hope.  They provide confidential support and advice to young people and anyone worried about a young person.
They run a national helpline, HOPELINE UK, including text and email services, staffed by a team of mental health professionals who provide practical help and advice to vulnerable young people and to those concerned about any young person who may be at risk of suicide. If you are having thoughts of suicide or are concerned for a young person who might be you can contact HOPELINEUK for confidential support and practical advice.
HOPELINEUK advisers want to work with you to understand why these thoughts of suicide might be present. They also want to provide you with a safe space to talk through anything happening in your life that could be impacting on your or anyone else’s ability to stay safe.

  • For children and young people under the age of 35 who are experiencing thoughts of suicide
  • For anyone concerned that a young person could be thinking about suicide.
