In a few days it will be the World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD): every year, on September 10th, the WSPD offers the opportunity to talk and reflect about a complex and global health problem.
WSPD is organized by the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) and WHO has been co-sponsor of the day. The main theme of this year is “Take a minute, change a life”.
In order to spread worldwide suicide prevention awareness, IASP prepared WSPD banners in different languages (to see the banners click here).
An editorial about the WSPD has been published in the last days on The Lancet Global Health, including further reading suggestions and WPSD-related link and info.
This editorial, titled
“Suicide prevention: keeping the momentum“
is our new reading suggestion.
It can be downloaded from the Lancet website (click here to go to the page).
Looking forward to sharing with you
the next scientific news and reading suggestions!
