    September 10th is World Suicide Prevention Day
    An estimated 800 000 people die by suicide worldwide each year. It can affect every one of us. Each and every suicide is devastating and has a profound impact on those around them.  However, by raising awareness, reducing the stigma around suicide, and encouraging well-informed action, we can reduce instances of suicide around the world.
    This year’s World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) theme is ‘Creating Hope Through Action’. It is a reminder that there is an alternative to suicide and aims to inspire confidence and light in all of us; that our actions, no matter how big or small, may provide hope to those who are struggling. Preventing suicide is often possible. Through action, we can all play a role in supporting those experiencing a suicidal crisis or those bereaved by suicide.
    How to participate in WSPD?
    World Health Suicide Prevention Day will take place on 10 September 2021.
