EFPA: “Psychological care and knowledge can save lives”.
The World Health Organi zation (WHO) chose s uicide as the theme for the World Mental Health Day 2019.
This choice reflects the importance of suicide and the need to intervene preemptively. Suicide kills close to 800 000 people every year which is more than 2 000 per day. However, these large numbers of deaths by suicide are not inevitable. Suicide varies significantly across country, and period, ranging from less than 5 to more than 15 suicides per 100 000. This variation suggests that there are several psychological and social in terventions that can be implemented.
