Papyrus - Suicide prevention day 10 September

PAPYRUS will mark this year’s World Suicide Prevention Day on Saturday 10 September by launching their #TalkThroughTheTaboo campaign to raise awareness that they need a national conversation about young suicide.
Suicide is the biggest killer of young people – male and female – under 35 in the UK. The stigma that exists around suicide creates a taboo which means that young lives are being needlessly lost. Silence only hides it and makes people less likely to get help.
Please support their campaign by signing up to the Thunderclap through your Facebook or Twitter account – find out details here
Suicidal feelings do not have to end in suicide – talking openly about suicide saves lives. Together we can prevent many more young deaths and stop families going through the unimaginable trauma of losing a loved one to suicide.
