World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD), on 10 September, is organized by the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP). The purpose of the Day is to raise awareness that suicide can be prevented. WHO is a co-sponsor of the day.
In past years, more than 300 activities in around 70 countries were reported to the IASP. Activities included educational and commemorative events, press briefings and conferences, and social media campaigns.
