Motion text

That this House expresses its support for the brave, tireless and selfless campaigning of the Three Dads Walking, Andy Airey, Tim Owen, and Mike Palmer, who with their UK walk are raising awareness of young suicide and boosting charity funds following the tragic losses of their daughters, Sophie, Emily and Beth to suicide; notes that suicide is the biggest killer of under-35s in the UK, with more than 200 school-aged children taking their own lives each year; and asks the Government to embed age-appropriate suicide awareness and prevention in the school curriculum and to expand mental health first aid training for staff in educational settings.
