A NATIONAL suicide prevention charity will be paying a visit to Plumley on Thursday January 23.

PAPYRUS Prevention of Young Suicide will be holding an open talk at Plumley Village Hall from 5-7pm.

Suicide is the leading cause of death of both young men and women in the UK and the charity hope to reduce the stigma surrounding suicide by hosting a series of talks across the country.

The free talk is open to anyone who has general interest in the mental wellbeing of young people and would like to know more about how to help those affected, whether it be in a personal or professional capacity.
