The national charity PAPYRUS (for the Prevention of Young Suicide) has made the claim that government Cuts to mental health service provision aimed specifically at young people aged 15-24 are putting this group at risk.

The charity calls on the government to improve the provision of mental health services to young people as a matter of urgency.  Every year in the UK between 600 and 800 young people between the ages of 15 and 24 take their own lives - a number equivalent to the population of a small secondary school.
