On World Suicide Prevention Day, WHO has released the latest data on suicide around the world. It shows that close to 800 000 people die by suicide every year. That means, one person dies every 40 seconds. All ages and sexes are affected, in every region of the world.
Suicides are preventable. Each of us can help to prevent it. Join WHO’s new “40 seconds of action” campaign to raise awareness of the scale of suicide around the world.
