World Suicide Prevention Day 10 September 2023

Last updated by Stephanie.Rosser@essex.gov.uk on Thursday, September 7, 2023

 

World Suicide Prevention Day is hosted on 10 September each year by the International Association for Suicide Prevention and provides the opportunity for people, across the globe, to raise awareness of suicide and suicide prevention.

 

The 2021-2023 theme for World Suicide Prevention Day, as set by the International Association for Suicide Prevention is ‘creating hope through action’.

 

The message asks us to create hope through action, by reflecting on how you can support someone in your life who may be experiencing suicidal thoughts or at risk of suicide. Encouraging understanding and sharing experiences creates a society where people have the confidence to take action, building hope for the future.
