CMHA National World Suicide Prevention Day- September 10

World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) was initiated in 2003 by the International Association for Suicide Prevention in partnership with the World Health Organization (WHO).  September 10th is an opportunity to honour families and communities impacted by a suicide attempt or loss. It is also a chance to raise awareness, reduce stigma around suicide, and, importantly, learn how to support those who may be struggling. 

WSPD 2023 theme “Creating Hope Through Action”
The WSPD theme offers a proactive approach to addressing the challenges of mental health care, suicide prevention, and crisis response. It encourages us to take meaningful actions to prevent suicide, break down hurtful beliefs, and nurture understanding.
