One month to go until World Suicide Prevention Day 2023!
World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) is an opportunity to raise awareness of suicide around the world, to highlight efforts that take place globally, nationally and regionally, and to highlight the role of the individual. Celebrated every year on 10 September, this day aims to encourage ‘Creating Hope Through Action’. The theme draws attention to the fact that there is an alternative to suicide and aims to inspire confidence and light in all of us.
We have a variety of resources on our website for World Suicide Prevention Day 2023. Visit the links below for information on this year’s theme as well as other resources and supportive messaging. https://www.iasp.info/wspd/
