In the UK, men are three times as likely to die by suicide than women. In the Republic of Ireland, the rate is four times higher among men than women. While there has been a reduction in the number of people completing suicide over the last ten years, the numbers are still worryingly high. World Suicide Prevention Day aims to start the conversation about suicide and to show that recovery is possible.
World Suicide Prevention day is hosted by IASP - for more information, please visit their website
If you have been affected by suicide and would like to support WSPD, please visit our share your story page
