Every year, millions of people worldwide commit suicide and millions more attempt it. Each and every suicide is devastating and has a profound impact on those around them. World Suicide Prevention Day, observed every year on September 10, is an opportunity to raise awareness of suicide and to promote action to reduce the number of suicides and suicide attempts globally.
The following resources — available through our global GuidanceResources Employee Assistance Program (EAP) — can help you understand and become more aware of suicide and the mental health issues surrounding it (available in English only):
- Information about warning signs and actions you can take if you suspect someone may be considering suicide
- Important facts about teen depression and suicide risk
- On-demand training for anyone struggling to manage emotions
- An interactive guide to mental health myth vs. fact
