Black Dog Institute Summit on Self-Harm
Self-harm, a topic often given short-shrift, was the focus of the recent Black Dog Institute Summit on Self-Harm, held in Sydney.
The end of summer and the beginning of autumn have been extremely eventful for IASP. Highlights have included being able to meet in person again for the European Symposium on Suicide and Suicidal Behaviour (ESSSB), as well as globally impactful campaigns surrounding World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) and World Mental Health Day (WMHD).
The theme for this year’s World Mental Health Day, aims to raise awareness of mental health issues around the world and to mobilize efforts in support of mental health.
Partnerships for Life networks are active in each of the six WHO regions, identifying contacts in over 60% of countries, in the context of a global five-year programme that takes into account the stage of suicide prevention strategy development in each country.
