World Suicide Prevention Day is observed on 10th September to promote awareness and worldwide action to prevent deaths due to suicide across the world which is important among today’s generation.
On every World Suicide Prevention Day, events and activities occur to establish that suicide is not the solution to any problem in their lives.
It’s a developing problem, and the numbers will tell you a shocking story.
