According to the World Health Organization (WHO), nearly 3000 people on average commit suicide daily, and for every person who commits suicide, 20 or more others attempt to end their lives. About one million people die by suicide each year (WHO).

Remember, if you are concerned about a co-worker, friend, or a family member, and you think they may be considering suicide, you can ACT to prevent suicide.

A – Ask the question – “Are you thinking of killing yourself?”
C – Care for your co-worker – Listen with compassion and voice your concern.
T – Take action – Seek professional help.
