ASP is delighted to announce, after a worldwide consultation, the new theme for World Suicide Prevention Day 2021-2023: “Creating Hope Through Action”. World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) was first launched in 2003 on 10 September by IASP with the endorsement of the World Health Organisation (WHO). The 10th of September each year has been designated as a way of focusing attention on the problems of suicide worldwide. Our renewed message is one of hope; that aims to empower people with confidence to engage with this complex subject. An ambitious task now lies ahead. Through this theme we aim to work together, through our membership and beyond, to create a movement of preventative action, with sustained messaging to drive behaviour change and ultimately, prevent more suicides. Over the next few months, we will be developing further resources, providing you with a World Suicide Prevention Day full campaign website, guided messaging around the theme, as well as a brand new look to our Light a Candle initiative and our Cycle around the Globe campaign.
