Since 2003, World Suicide Prevention Day is an awareness day observed on September 10th, every year. The day serves to provide a worldwide commitment and action to prevent suicides.
Worldwide, close to 800,000 people died from suicide in 2019. This is why worldwide efforts at suicide prevention are critical. We lose someone to suicide every 40 seconds.
Have the conversations. Fund the research. Make resources and treatment readily available. Fight stigma. Do it now.
