One person dies from suicide every 40 seconds
At Depression Alliance we welcome the WHO report on preventing suicide. The numbers of people who have taken their own lives through suicide globally is shockingly high.
We back the reports call to action to support people in building strong local networks of other people who understand depression and suicidal thoughts.
Loneliness, isolation & depression are major contributing factors to these figures, we hope to combat this through Friends in Need, letting people know that they are not alone at any time day or night. By doing this we know that we can prevent suicides.
