Suicide is the biggest killer of young people under 35 in the UK.
PAPYRUS is the national charity for the prevention of young suicide and believes that many young suicides are preventable. They operate HOPELINEUK, a confidential call, text, and email helpline for young people with thoughts of suicide or those concerned about a young person who may have thoughts of suicide. Every £5 raised can help pay for a potentially life-saving contact to HOPELINEUK from a young person wanting to stay safe from their thoughts of suicide.
Swansea University is proud to support PAPYRUS and the invaluable work it does with young people in our community. HOPEWALKS take place across the UK throughout October to get the conversation started around suicide. We want Swansea's first HOPEWALK to raise awareness, raise money and reduce stigma.
Please join us on our 3 mile circular beach walk - just remember to wear suitable footwear and dress sensibly!
