Suicide Awareness

PAPYRUS has recently launched a campaign to help raise awareness and save some of the 200 school children who die by suicide every year in the UK. They have developed a FREE “Suicide Safer Schools and colleges Guide” which can be viewed here.

They have also developed a training programme to help schools engage with this difficult subject, and to help them develop their own suicide prevention policy. They recently worked with the public health team in Bexley Borough to invite all the senior schools in the borough to a 90 minute awareness raising session on this subject.
