Considering to end their lives just because things aren’t going their way usually provokes people to end their lives while ignoring the world, the family, and the friends they left behind.
So, in this article further, let’s know more about World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD), a day that focuses on creating awareness against suicide attempts. In this article further, we will know more about the World Suicide Prevention Day 2021 History, Date, Significance, and theme.
(WSPD) World Suicide Prevention Day 2021 is observed every year on 10th September.
(WSPD) World Suicide Prevention Day 2021 was celebrated for the first time on 10th September 2003. The World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) is commemorated by International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) in collaboration with the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH).
While on its first event in 2003, the WHO’s 1999 global suicide prevention initiative is addressed with regards to the main strategy for its implementation, that requires:
"The organization of global, regional and national multi-sectoral activities to increase awareness about suicidal behaviors and how to effectively prevent them."
"The strengthening of countries’ capabilities to develop and evaluate national policies and plans for suicide prevention."
World Suicide Prevention Day (WPSD) is commemorated every year with the aim to create awareness among people to avoid committing suicide and prevent it at any cost. It must be noted that people should discuss the way to prevent suicide with the victims.
Considering the current scenarios of the country, many laborers and farmers in our country commit suicide, after being under the burden of debts. The only thing that lingers in mind is to escape from the situation, and hence, hence, they choose suicide as an option, again ignoring their family which has to suffer through the difficult situation that they left behind. However, such situations can be prevented by creating awareness around the fact that “difficult situations can be worked out in any way.”
The theme for (WSPD) World Suicide Prevention Day 2021 is “Creating Hope Through Action”, which promises a collective initiative towards suicide prevention.
