World Suicide Prevention Day
September 10th is World Suicide Prevention Day.
World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) was established in 2003 in conjunction with the World Health Organisation (WHO) and is a significant advocacy and communication based event aimed at reaching national organisations, governments and the general public, giving a singular message that
suicide can be prevented.
