World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) is an awareness day observed on 10 September every year.  The day aims to build worldwide commitment and action to prevent suicides.

The theme for 2022 is ‘Creating Hope Through Action’, designed to encourage and empower people to take action to further prevent suicide around the world.  

World Suicide Prevention Day is an opportunity to raise the consciousness of suicide around the world, to highlight efforts that take place globally, nationally and regionally but to also highlight the role of the individual. We can all play a role in preventing suicides.
