Suicide prevention remains a global challenge and this is why World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) is observed globally on 10 September every year.
Working Together to Prevent Suicide was the theme of World Suicide Prevention Day in 2019. The most essential ingredient for effective global suicide prevention is Collaboration.
The One Defence approach to Suicide Prevention is collaborative, comprehensive and multi-faceted.
The Defence Suicide Prevention Program is informed by current research and data and is translated into evidence-based strategies and activities including awareness and education, skill development, risk identification and comprehensive mental health services and support.
On 10 September each year, we invite our Defence community to join the broader communities across the globe and play our part in the prevention of suicide.
