History of September 10: Major events that you need to know
Why do we celebrate World Prevention Suicide on September 10?
WSPF is applauded every year on September 10 to deliver global commitment and strategy to dissuade suicides, with various workouts since 2003. On this particular day, several campaigns and social chores are released for the awareness of not preferring this harsh way to deal with our life difficulties.
The International Association of Suicide Prevention collaborated with World Health Organization and the World Federation Mental Health with the main agenda of talking openly about social stigmas and explanations which lead a person to end his/her life.
In 2011, 40 countries made this possible by participating in various events to minimize the number of suicides in the global index.
