October 10, 2019, is World Mental Health Day. This international observance is meant to raise awareness of challenges faced by people around the world and remind us of things we can do to support our own emotional well-being as well as to support others in our life. The World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH) selected "suicide prevention" as the main theme of World Federation Mental Health Day 2019.
In the U.S., a person dies from suicide about every 16 minutes. For many of us, when we’ve felt hopeless or backed into a corner, suicide seemed like a solution. We’ve learned that WRAP can be a roadmap for responding to suicidal thoughts by finding different ways to get through whatever
difficult circumstances we may be facing. When you build your WRAP, you’ll have the option to identify supporters you can lean on and action plans you can use when you’re facing a crisis or other challenges, including thinking about suicide.
Are you feeling desperate – overwhelmed, anxious, in physical and emotional pain, like you just can’t go on? Find Help NOW
