ABOUT WORLD SUICIDE PREVENTION COMMITMENT  

"All over the globe, individuals, agencies, and governments all do different things to bring the spotlight on suicide and to bring people together to help find a solution. Some of the things which are done include holding press conferences, creating videos about suicide prevention, holding educational seminars and conferences, securing radio and television commercials highlighting the problem, holding memorial service and candlelight vigils, throwing BBQs or luncheons, launching books or other print media, using the hashtag #worldsuicidepreventionday and posting to social media. All of these efforts can help shine the light on the problem of suicide and help bring people together so they can come up with new strategies to fight it."
