World Suicide Prevention Day(Sept 10th) Initiative- Stay Connected- Spread Awareness-Prevent Suicide- AASRA
#WHO, #IASP Befrienders Worldwide #AASRA commemorate World Suicide Prevention Day- An initiative to prevent suicides worldwide.Every 40 seconds someone dies due to suicide and many more attempt suicide – it can happen to anyone anywhere in the world. However, suicides are preventable and everyone can play a role. This can be a family member, friend or colleague who listens closely or encourages help seeking, a health worker who openly asks about suicidal thoughts or previous attempts, the community who identifies people at risk and provides support. It can also be a policy maker who takes leadership and brings different stakeholders together. AASRA Suicide Prevention(91-22-27546669 (24x7)), India, along with WHO’s first World Suicide Report,Befrienders, IASP & many other like-minded organisations as part of the World Suicide Prevention Day initiative, calls upon individuals, communities and countries to act now for preventing suicide.
