support.”

The World Health Organization (WHO) says:
“On average, almost 3000 people commit suicide daily. … At the
global level, awareness needs to be raised that suicide is a major
preventable cause of premature death. Governments need to develop
policy frameworks for national suicide prevention strategies. At the
local level, policy statements and research outcomes need to be
translated into prevention programmes and activities in communities.”
