Suicide Prevention Day - 10th September

According to WHO, close to 800 000 people commit suicide every year. That’s 1 person committing suicide every 40 seconds. 

 

This World Suicide Prevention Day is to encourage people to engage with each other and to come together to prevent suicide. 

 

Heavy internet usage is one of the major reasons for depression which leads to suicide. But does that really have to be the case? No way to use technology better?

Platforms like meetup.com help you deviate your mind from these horrifying thoughts by doing something new, what you love and meet people. Google is also coming up with its new social networking app Shoelace aimed at organizing local events and activities to make people come out of the virtual world and meet in person.
