World Suicide Prevention Day, 10th September 2014
The theme this year is SUICIDE PREVENTION : ONE WORLD CONNECTED
World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) is an indispensable conduit for getting out and making visible, the message of the importance of suicide prevention. It is a day that brings the global community together, from the general public to those who work in the field, with the one focus of shining a spotlight on raising awareness of suicide prevention.
We are excited to announce that WSPD 2014 will mark the release of the World Suicide Report (WSR). The WSR is the most comprehensive, up-to-date record of the current status of suicide prevention internationally. It outlines the epidemiology of suicide, presenting the most recent data from countries across the world. It discusses major risk and protective factors for suicide, paying particular attention to those which are modifiable.
