World Suicide Prevention Day

A time to connect and reflect

Every year on September 10, people in over 50 countries recognize World Suicide Prevention Day

World Suicide Prevention Day is a chance for everyone to join us in promoting understanding about suicide: those impacted by a suicide attempt or loss, family and friends, charitable organizations, professionals, politicians, volunteers and community members. Every year, 160 million people worldwide contemplate suicide and, tragically, 800,000 of them die by suicide. This means that more than 159 million people survive suicide related crises every year. There is no reason that anyone has to die by suicide and, if we all do our part, we can prevent those deaths that do happen and the devastating impact that they have. Read more
