World Suicide Prevention Day, September 10, 2023
The theme for this year’s World Suicide Prevention Day is “Creating Hope Through Action”. Every year on September 10th, people in over 50 countries recognize World Suicide Prevention Day.
World Suicide Prevention Day is a time to connect and reflect. It’s a chance for everyone to join in promoting understanding about suicide: those impacted by a suicide attempt or loss, family and friends charitable organizations, professionals, politicians, volunteers and community members.
We know that suicide is a major public health issue. However, the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention (CASP) believe there is no reason anyone had to die by suicide, and if we all do our part, we can prevent those deaths that do happen and the devastating impact they may have.
