    World Suicide Prevention Day

    September 10 is proclaimed 'World Suicide Prevention Day' by the World Health Organisation. In the whole world people dedicate special attention to the prevention of suicide. In Flanders, over 1000 people die by suicide every year.

    Talking really works!

    Do you think about suicide? Are you concerned for someone? Do you know somebody who thinks of suicide or committed an attempt? Do you recognize signals of suicidal thoughts by someone in your near environment? Do you urgently need to talk to someone?

    For the international community, there is an English-spoken 24/7 service at the Community Help Service.
