"Suicide affects far too many Wisconsin families and communities and requires a comprehensive approach to prevention that addresses the range of factors contributing to an individual's emotional pain".

Another way to do that is by taking part in a 20-minute online training session called Save A Life, which gives people ideas on how to support someone considering suicide.

The most common methods of suicide are hanging, pesticide self-poisoning, and firearms.

On this day we remember all of the friends, family and loved ones that have attempted or died from suicide.

"The Suicide Prevention Coalition of Champlain East is a partnership made up of 26 organizations from the City of Cornwall, the United Counties of Prescott and Russell, the United Counties of Stormont, Dundas and Glengarry and Akwesasne".

Dr. Harkavy-Friedman, who will also be leading a session at the Suicide Prevention 360 pre-conference earlier that day, will be speaking about the suicide prevention work that AFSP is doing nationwide.

The WHO pointed to studies in Sri Lanka, where bans on pesticides have led to a 70% drop in suicides and an estimated 93,000 lives saved between 1995 and 2015. Yet, only 80 of the 183 WHO Member States for which estimates were produced in 2016 had good-quality vital registration data.

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

"What's missing in the current suicide prevention framework are services for people well before a suicide attempt".
