Research By Movemeber Reveals Men's Mental Health At Work A Problem

From 2010 to 2016, the global suicide rate fell by almost 10% to 10.5 per 100,000 people.

Permanent Secretary at the Department of Health Richard Pengelly said: "Suicide is preventable and not inevitable, yet nearly every day in Northern Ireland a person takes their own life".

Now £8.7 million is invested on suicide prevention each year.

In a fresh report, the United Nations health agency said that the global suicide rate had fallen somewhat between 2010 and 2016, but the number of deaths has remained stable because of a growing global population.

Of all state deaths by firearm from 2013-2017, 71% were suicide deaths. It can affect anyone and therefore we all have a role to play to collectively address the challenges.

"No one should ever feel alone or that they don't matter - and that's what our responders do for people who reach out for support", said Ron Dunn, the mission's executive director.

With the third-highest rate of suicide in the region, TT must prioritise the implementation of suicide prevention strategies and improve data collection and surveillance systems for self-harm and suicide attempts said President Paula-Mae Weekes.

He added that everyone can make a contribution in preventing suicide and believes that it is by joining together, those suffering can be better supported.

Dr McBride welcomed the new strategy, which comes 13 years after the launch of the original "Protect Life", and said it was already making a "positive difference". This programme has recently been expanded and is now available in the Belfast and South Eastern HSC trust areas.

Debra Wentz, the president and CEO of New Jersey Association of Mental Health and Addiction Agencies, said the idea "is to raise awareness about suicide and (deliver) information that's targeted specifically towards health care professionals".

A growing body of global evidence has indicated that regulations to prohibit the use of highly hazardous pesticides can lead to reductions in national suicide rates, the World Health Organization said, citing the examples of Sri Lanka and the Republic of Korea. Many people know somebody who has taken their own life.

Estimated medical costs of Texas hospitalizations for suicide attempts average $8,849 per patient, or more than $95.6 million annually.

World Suicide Prevention Day is a reminder that society needs consistent and increasing advocacy for mental health resources so that people struggling with mental health disorders can find the help they need.

The Waterloo Region Suicide Prevention Council has an event scheduled for September 10 at the Kitchener Public Library.
