Vision, Mission & Values
A society which speaks openly about suicide and has the resources to help young people who may have suicidal thoughts.
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.
Beliefs that guide our thinking:
- PAPYRUS believes that many young suicides are preventable
- PAPYRUS believes that no young person should suffer alone with thoughts or feelings of hopelessness
- PAPYRUS believes that no one should have to go through the heartbreak of losing a loved one to suicide
- PAPYRUS believes that everyone can play a role in preventing young suicide
