Anyone can feel suicidal and it can be for any reason. Suicidal thoughts can occur even if life feels like it’s going well. This can lead to feelings of guilt; especially if you compare yourself to others who you imagine have it worse than you.

Some people feel suicidal if they're struggling to come to terms with the death of someone else. The death might have happened under any circumstances but if you have been bereaved by suicide, you might have suicidal thoughts yourself.  You may be finding it hard to talk to anyone about how you are struggling, or you are feeling hopeless about getting help.

Papyrus is the national charity dedicated to the prevention of young suicide - the biggest cause of death in people under 35. They provide confidential support and advice to young people struggling with thoughts of suicide, and anyone worried about a young person through the helpline, HOPELINEUK.

PAPYRUS has been a long standing member of the government advisory groups in England and Wales on suicide prevention matters.
