Nearly 800,000 people commit suicide every year. It’s the second leading cause of death among people aged 15-29 in 2016, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO).
A toolkit to help communities prevent suicides was released by the WHO and the Mental Health Commission of Canada on the World Suicide Prevention Day on Monday.
Suicides happen in all the countries and regions, whether rich or poor. However, most of them occur in low and middle-income countries, which accounted for almost four-fifths of the global suicides in 2016, the document said.
