About this event

Suicide prevention remains a universal challenge

The World Health Organization estimates that over 800,000 people take their own life each year – that’s one person every 40 seconds. 

Every year organisations and communities around the world come together to raise awareness of how we can create a world where fewer people die by suicide.
