10 September 2018

The World Health Organization estimates that over 800,000 people die by suicide each year – that’s one person every 40 seconds.

World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) is held every year on 10 September to raise awareness and work towards the common goal of preventing suicide. On this day, numerous events, conferences, campaigns and local activities call to public attention one of the world’s largest causes of premature and unnecessary death – suicide.

Check out the WSPD website to see what’s happening near you on the 10th of September this year.
