World Suicide Prevention Day
The World Health Organization estimates that over 800,000 people die by suicide each year - that's one person every 40 seconds. Up to 25 times as many again make a suicide attempt. World Suicide Prevention Day, September 10th, is an opportunity for all sectors of the community to join with the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) to focus public attention on the unacceptable burden and costs of suicidal behaviors with diverse activities to promote understanding about suicide and highlight effective prevention activities.
