Suicide not only ends a person’s life and future, but it also hurts their loved ones. It is possible to resist giving in to life’s difficulties.
Every suicide death is a public health concern that has a substantial impact on the individuals in the surrounding community. We can reduce the number of suicides worldwide by raising awareness, reducing stigma, and encouraging informed action.
The International Association for Suicide Prevention and the World Health Organization (WHO) created World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) in 2003.
Since then, organizations, governments from all around the world, and regular individuals take part on September 10 to raise awareness of the problem, reduce stigma, and send a strong message that suicide may be prevented.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has stated on its portal monitored by our reporter in Yarwa town today.
WHO stated that an estimates of seven hundreds and three thousand (7,03,000) people worldwide commit suicide each year.
World Health agency further narrates that for every suicide, there are likely 20 other people making suicide attempts, and many more have serious thoughts of suicide.
Suicidal behaviour has a huge influence on millions of people and causes them to experience severe grief.
