#WorldSuicidePreventionDay: Working Together to Prevent Suicide

Today  (September 10) is World Suicide Prevention Day.

This year's theme, as determined by the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP), is "Working Together to Prevent Suicide".  There are various events worldwide to mark the day. 

We all need to work together as individuals, professionals, governments and service providers to ensure more openness in talking about suicide and better services for those in need.

IASP is partnering with Twitter this World Suicide Prevention Day. When you tweet with specific hashtags Twitter will automatically apply the international yellow and orange suicide prevention ribbon to the hashtag. More information can be found on the IASP website.
