Suicide is one of the major challenges for the world. As studies have revealed that every 40 second a person dies globally because of suicide.
Additionally, around 800, 000 people lose their precious lives annually due to suicide.
An other report of World bank declared that 1000 people in Pakistan have lost their lives in 2016 just because of suicide. It hurts me to pen down that no action towards the prevention of suicide has been adopted.
Sep 10 is observed as World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) globally. This day is highly valued in all other countries to spread awareness among the people for the prevention of suicide but unfortunately it has not been observed as a special day in Pakistan.
Suicide prevention deserves serious attention. The concerned authorities need to develop awareness campaign with an aim to spread awareness among the people about suicide.
