Suicide prevention and awareness month observed in September

According to the recent reports, around 800,000 people commit suicide each year worldwide. Some reports even claim that in the US there are 100 suicide incidents happens every day. These numbers can increase or decrease due to the fact that these suicide attempts were successful or not. There are various reasons for suicides, and to create awareness about suicide prevention, world observes World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) on September 10 every year.world-suicide-prevention-day

The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says that suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the US, while murder (homicide) listed in 16th place. According to a 2012’s worldwide data, suicide is the second leading cause of death in teens and young adults aged between 15-29 years.

In 2015, the World Health Organization’s (WHO) International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) has given tagline for the event as ‘Preventing Suicide: Reaching Out and Saving Lives.’

Dr. Mark Pollack, president of the Anxiety and Depression Association of America and Grainger professor as well as the chairman, Department of Psychiatry, Rush University Medical Center in Chicago, said in a statement:

“There’s a significant body of research that demonstrates that individuals suffering from anxiety disorders and depression face an increased risk of suicidal thoughts and attempts. Effectively diagnosing and treating both anxiety disorders and depression, especially when they co-occur, are critical pathways to intervening and reducing suicide crises.”

Along with thousands, one of the greatest Hollywood actor Robin Williams too lost his life to suicide. Williams’ tragic death made highly public the great need for increased awareness of the grave risk that suicide poses.

“Both depression and anxiety carry a high risk of suicide,” says Mark Pollack, MD, ADAA President and Grainger Professor and Chairman, Department of Psychiatry at Rush University Medical Center. “More than 90 percent of those who die by suicide have a diagnosable illness such as clinical depression, and often in combination with anxiety or substance use disorders and other treatable mental disorders.”

Many leading organizations observe the suicide prevention month in September, across the states by organizing many social awareness events and programs.

If you’re living in St. George, Utah, you can attend an exclusive screening of DOCUTAH film “All These Flowers,” this Thursday from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the SelectHealth Auditorium located at 1424 E. Foremaster Drive. The event is co-hosted by Dixie Regional, the National Alliance on Mental Health in Southern Utah, Switchpoint, the Community Mental Health Alliance and Reach4Hope

Kevin Bryce directed the film who also will begin the event with a special introduction and the screening will be followed by a question and answer section with the audience. The auditorium will also have resources for suicide prevention and mental health services. Kevin Bryce filmed “All These Flowers” on the real life story of 6 people living with bipolar disorder. He has also witnessed his loved ones struggle with bipolar disorder, which ultimately motivated him to make the film on this subject.

Dr. Christine Moutier, chief medical officer of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, said:

“Progress is being made in how Americans view mental health and the important role it plays in our everyday lives. People see the connection between mental health and overall well-being, our ability to function at work and at home, and how we view the world around us. Respondents want to help a loved one by connecting them to the right mental health treatment and support.”
