Reference information:

The World Suicide Prevention Day was established by the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) and the World Health Organisation (WHO) in 2002. It is celebrated annually on the 10th of September.

A significant obstacle to suicide prevention is the stigmatization of this area. Therefore, many people with mental illness do not seek relevant assistance at all. The World Suicide Prevention Day aims to draw public attention to the importance of keeping as many people as possible from committing suicide and to increase support for those who have lost loved ones as a result of suicide.
