World Suicide Prevention Day 2020
World Suicide Prevention Day is an international awareness day observed on 10 September each year to provide a focus for dedicated action to prevent suicide. The International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) collaborates with the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the World Federation for Mental Health to host World Suicide Prevention Day.
For community organisations and individuals dedicated to preventing suicide, this annual awareness day is an opportunity to share a message of hope and action in the community. Events and activities organised by volunteers and community organisations occur in local communities across Australia.
It must be emphasised that World Suicide Prevention Day requires careful consideration to the wellbeing of those who participate ensuring that supportive environments are created for all who wish to be involved.
