One in every 100 deaths worldwide is the result of suicide. This worrying statistic is from the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP). They make it their job to raise awareness and reduce the stigma around suicide. Their aim is to reduce suicide numbers on a global scale.
To support this, World Suicide Prevention Day takes place every year on the 10th of September. The day promotes open, honest and genuine conversations about suicide. It’s been running across the world since 2003 and this year the theme is: ‘Creating Hope Through Action’.
Creating hope through action
This year’s theme serves to remind us all that there is always an alternative to suicide. Everyone has the potential to intervene and be a light of hope to someone who is struggling. We can help to reduce the number of suicides globally by reaching out to friends, family, strangers and colleagues.
Suicidal thoughts are confusing and complex. What might help one person might not help another. People with existing medical conditions like anxiety or depression may be more vulnerable to suicide. Sometimes, it can be life events that trigger suicidal thoughts. There isn't always a clear cause. These thoughts make people feel alone and trapped. But there are ways you can take action this World Suicide Prevention Day.
