World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) is an awareness day observed on 10 September every year since 2003, to provide worldwide commitment and action to prevent suicides. The IASP (International Association for the Study of Pain) collaborates with the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the World Federation for Mental Health to spread awareness around the world. The theme for this year is “Working Together to Prevent Suicide”. This is the third year that this theme is being used. It has been chosen because it highlights the most essential ingredient for effective global suicide prevention – collaboration. All of us have a role to play and together we can collectively address the challenges presented by suicidal behaviour in society today.
