World Suicide Prevention Day -
We observe World Suicide Prevention Day each year on September 10. It’s a growing problem and the numbers tell a shocking story. Every 40 seconds someone takes their own life according to the World Health Organization (WHO). That’s about 800,000 people worldwide every year — although some estimates put that number closer to 1 million. Suicide is the leading cause of death for people aged 15 to 29 and for every suicide that results in death, there are as many as 40 attempted suicides. What we know for sure is that there’s a lot to live for. Check out National Suicide Prevention Month for more information.
If you, or someone you know need help, please reach out in S.A here:
This is close to home, to myself Dominic Thompson as my father committed suicide on April 30th, 2017. Without any warning signs (at the time) - please seek help if you suffer from depression (or any other underlined) condition. There is always HELP, you are not alone.
I will go live on Friday to
