World Suicide Prevention Day – 10 September, 2016
The International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) and the World Health Organization (WHO) co-sponsor World Suicide Prevention Day every year on September 10th. The National Wellbeing Service, IASP and WHO are encouraging people to light a candle near a window at 8 PM to show support for suicide prevention, to remember a lost loved one through suicide and for the survivors of suicide.
Lighting a Candle near a Window at 8 PM
Lighting a Candle near a Window at 8 PM offers people who cannot participate in a World Suicide Prevention Day event the opportunity to observe the Day in a private and personal way.
