New Delhi | Jagran Lifestyle Desk: The World Suicide Prevention Day is celebrated every year on September 10, to create awareness about suicide and talk about ways to prevent the suicidal thoughts in a person.

The first World Suicide Prevention Day was celebrated in 2013 when the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) collaborated with the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH) hosted it for the first time.

This day is observed to aware people who are fighting a battle within themselves and have started thinking about ending their life as an escape plan from the pain they are suffering from.
