September 10, 2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the World Suicide Prevention Day. With suicides and suicidal behavior becoming major health issue across the world, the World Health Organization (WHO) in collaboration with International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) observes this day as World Suicide Prevention Day to create awareness among the people. The main aim of this initiative is to make policy makers and the general public understands that suicide preventable and that suicide is not a permanent solution to a temporary problem, as many believe it to be. The theme of World Suicide Prevention Day this year is “Suicide Prevention across the Globe: Strengthening Protective Factors and Instilling Hope”.
