BUILDING SUICIDE-SAFER SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES

A PAPYRUS Conference for the Primary and Secondary Education Sector

Saturday 29 September 2018

Baden-Powell House, 65-67 Queen's Gate, South Kensington, London, SW7 5JS

Over 200 school children die by suicide every year in the UK. Among 15-19 year olds, the rate of suicide is increasing. PAPYRUS wants to address this head on but we need your help and that of every school and college in the land.

On World Suicide Prevention Day on 10 September 2017, PAPYRUS launched the ‘Save the Class’ campaign which aimed to raise awareness of suicide within our school communities. We created our Building Suicide-Safer Schools and Colleges: A Guide for Teachers and Staff, a first of its kind, to support schools and colleges in suicide prevention, intervention and “postvention”. We want schools to be ready to prevent young suicide and ensure best practice after a young suicide too.

This September, we want to show you what has been achieved already with our Save the #ClassOf2018 campaign. Throughout the day there will be opportunities for you to share ideas and experiences. We need to learn from schools and colleges across the UK. Hopefully too, you will learn how to equip your whole school community with the tools it needs to identify young people at risk and how to keep them and your school community suicide-safer.

Your attendance demonstrates the importance of suicide prevention to your school community and shows your support for our Save the #ClassOf2018 campaign. We cannot do it without you.

Your attendance may help to save a young life. Really!
