World Suicide Prevention Day

Sep 10, 2021

World Suicide Prevention Day is commemorated on 10 September to promote worldwide commitment and action to prevent suicides. On average, almost 3 000 people commit suicide daily. For every person who completes a suicide, 20 or more may attempt to end their lives.


For family and friends affected by suicide or attempted suicide, the emotional impact can last for many years.
