World Suicide Prevention Day – September 10, 2012

World Suicide Prevention Day on September 10th promotes worldwide commitment and action to prevent suicides. The theme of World Suicide Prevention Day this year is “Suicide Prevention across the Globe: Strengthening Protective Factors and Instilling Hope”. 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. Suicide is a multi-determined phenomenon that occurs against a background of complex interacting biological, social, psychological and environmental risk and protective factors. Despite the complexity of this phenomenon, suicide can be prevented.

The International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) website  provides a toolkit, press release preparation materials, and information in multiple languages for organizations preparing to participate in World Suicide Prevention Day.
