According to the World Health Organization, over 800,000 people per year die by suicide—or one person every 40 seconds. Suicide Prevention Week in September, which includes World Suicide Prevention Day on September 10, originated in 2003 as a joint initiative by the International Association for Suicide Prevention and the World Health Organization. This important week provides an opportunity for all members of the community to draw public attention to the burden and costs of suicidal behavior, promoting understanding and communicating effective prevention activities with caring and compassion.
