Each year 160 million people worldwide contemplate suicide and tragically 800,000 of them die by suicide.
The awareness event for the day featured presentations by a panels sharing their experiences of suicide-related behaviors and actions and what was and wasn’t supportive during this time.
Following their presentation there was a q & a where participants will answer questions from viewers.
Everyone is encouraged to participate in the Candle Vigil and place a lit candle in their window (or electronic if not able to place lit) at 8pm.
The toolkit for the day is available at the link below.
