September 10th marks the day of this year’s World Day for Suicide Prevention.
This year there will be a program in which various representatives will have the opportunity to speak about issues related to suicide and suicide prevention. Additionally, this program will provide various workshops to foster skills that promote effective treatment and interactions with those contemplating suicide.
There will be a large emphasis on the community in Martinique and risk factors specific to the region. By involving the public in this talk, it is our hope to spread awareness about suicide and continue to enhance the current mechanisms for its prevention.
The International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) is hosting a series of events around the world, to raise awareness.
