Every year TRIPLE i delivers on its mission to encourage intuition, imagination and innovation in research and prevention of suicide and suicidal behaviour, and 2021 was no different.
It’s now more than 18 months since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Almost 4 million people have lost their lives and 200 million people have been diagnosed with COVID around the globe.
It is common for people with a lived experience of suicide to experience heightened emotions surrounding their lived experience of bereavement, their own suicidality or being a carer, at times of hardship, uncertainty and challenge.
A key concern for our IASP community remains the potential impact of the pandemic and the associated restriction measures on public mental health and suicide rates.
The IASP Helplines Best Practices Special Interest Group (SIG) was established to facilitate the exchange of information and research across helpline services.
IASP’s virtual cycling event, Cycle Around the Globe, is back for the eighth year running, to raise awareness of suicide prevention worldwide.
On June 17th 2021, the World Health Organisation (WHO) launched the Live Life Implementation Guide. This resource has been developed for the purpose of supporting countries in their efforts to prevent suicide by means of implementing effective interventions to save lives.
When It Is Darkest: Why People Die By Suicide is an incredible resource, which combines personal anecdotes and research in a poignant and sensitive way.
