WHO First Report on Suicide Worldwide 2014

 

Over 800 000 people die by suicide every year – that’s one person every 40 seconds. Yet these deaths are preventable.

In WHO’s first suicide report “Preventing suicide: a global imperative” information is included on what is known about suicide across the world, groups at particular risk of suicide, and what can be done at both societal and individual level to reduce the number of deaths from suicide.
