Today is world suicide prevention day
Posted Friday 10 September 2010
Today marks world suicide prevention day. To find out about International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP), a partnership supported by the World Health Organization that turns 50 today, visit their website.
If you or someone you know is experiencing suicidal thoughts, please consult the crisis page of our website for guidance.
If these situations do not describe you at the moment, other forms of help might be more appropriate. We produce a variety of information and guidance on our website:
- “I am experiencing suicidal feelings.”
How to cope with suicidal feelings
- “Someone I know says they have suicidal thoughts.”
How to help someone who is suicidal
- “I want more information about suicide crisis services.”
Factsheet: Crisis services
- “I am a professional or student researching suicide.”
