School Psych Corner: September 10th is World Suicide Prevention Day
World Suicide Prevention Day, an event taking place under the theme “Working Together to Prevent Suicide,” is being supported Monday by campaigners, politicians and celebs.
Launched in 2003 by the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP), partnered with the World Health Organization (WHO), the date of September 10 is annually used to raise awareness surrounding the conditions that lead to 800,000 deaths every year.
“We [chose] this theme as it highlights the most essential ingredient for effective global suicide prevention-collaboration,” the IASP said in a release. “We all have a role to play and together we can collectively address the challenges presented by suicidal behavior in society.”
