The 2014 international theme for World Suicide Prevention Day is ‘Suicide Prevention: One World Connected.’
The theme reflects the fact that connections are important at several levels if we are to combat suicide – at an individual level, cross support services, and cross country/countries.

World Suicide Prevention Day in 2014 is significant because it marks the release by the WHO of the World Suicide Report (WSR). The report follows the adoption of the Comprehensive Mental Health Action Plan 2013-2020 by the World Health Assembly, which commits all 194 member states to reducing their suicide rates by 10% by 2020.
