10 Shtator 2015, Dita Botërore e Parandalimit të Vetëvrasjes

Description

Të parandalojmë vetëvrasjen; të arrijmë tek ata që janë rrezik për vetëvrasje

Sipas Organizatës Botërore të Shëndetësisë, mbi 800,000 njerëz vdesin çdo vit si pasojë e vetëvrasjes dhe ka shumë më tepër tentativa. Vetëvrasja është një fenomen global, e përhapur në të gjithë botën. Afërsisht 3000 persona sipas OBSH vdesin çdo ditë si pasojë e vetëvrasjes. Për çdo person që kryen një vetëvrasje, 20 apo më shumë tentojnë një gjë të tillë.

Kështu, disa millionë njerëz preken apo përjetojnë eksperienca të lidhura me të çdo vit. Vetëvrasja përbën ndër arsyet kryesore të vdekjes në moshën 15-29 vjeç. Gjithësesi vlerësohet që shifrat të jenë shumë më të larta për shkak të stigmës së lidhur me vetëvrasjen, mungesën e besimit në procedurat për rregjisrimin e vdekjes si dhe sanksionet ligjore dhe fetare ndaj vetëvrasjes në disa vende.

Pavarësisht se është e vështirë të përcaktohet shifra e saktë, vetëvrasja mbetet një humbje tragjike e jetës. Vështirë të imagjinohet dhimbja e madhe psikologjike që mund të çojë një person të mendojë që vetëvrasja është veprimi më i përshtatshëm. Të shpëtosh një person në këtë gjendje, mund të bëjë diferencën.

Vetëvrasja është një shkak i parandalueshëm i vdekjes së parakohshme, e ndikuar nga faktorë rreziku psikosocialë, kulturorë dhe mjedisorë. Parandalimi mund të realizohet vetëm duke adresuar faktorët e rrezikut të sipërpërmendur. Ka të dhëna, se një parandalim efektiv mund të reduktojë shifrat e vetëvrasjes.

Slogan i përzgjedhur për vitin 2015 është “Të parandalojmë vetëvrasjen; të arrijmë tek ata që janë rrezik për vetëvrasje. Dita botërore e parandalimit të vetëvrasjes, që prej vitit 2003 është vendosur në 10 Shtator të çdo viti. Në këtë ditë synohet të:

Organizmat ndërkombëtarë bashkëpunojnë me qeveritë dhe aktorët lokalë për të mundësuar reduktimin e stigmës ndaj vetëvrasjes. Nga ky bashkëpunim synohet gjithashtu të ndërtohet një lidership dhe veprim politik për të zhvilluar një përgjigje kombëtare lidhur me parandalimin e vetëvrasjes dhe ndërtimin e kapaciteteve për implementimin e masave parandaluese.Tema e këtij viti, i nkurajon të gjithë të marrin në konsideratë rolin që mund ketë në parandalimin e vetëvrasjes.

Veprimi i të treguarit kujdes dhe shqetësim ndaj dikujt që mund të jetë vulnerabël ndaj vetëvrasjes, mund të sjellë një ndryshim të madh. Të pyeturit e tyre nëse janë mirë, të dëgjuarit e asaj çfarë kanë për të thënë si dhe të bërët e qartë që ju kujdeseni për ta, mund të kenë të gjitha një ndikim të konsiderueshëm. Izolimi mund të shtojë rrezikun e vetëvrasjes e nga ana tjetër patja e lidhjeve të forta sociale është faktor mbrojtës.

Të arrijmë tek ata që janë prekur nga vetëvrasja

Vetëvrasja është shkatërruese për familjet, shokët dhe komunitetin që prekt. Ata mund të përjetojnë një rang të gjerë emocionesh përfshirë dhimbjen, zemërimin, fajin, mosbesimin vetëfajësimin etj. Shpesh atyre u duket sikur nuk i ndajnë dot këto ndjenja me të tjerët. kështu, të qëndruarit pranë një personi që ka humbur një të afërm për shkak të vetëvrasjes është po ashtu shumë e rëndësishme.

Si rezultat i stigmës që shoqëron vetëvrasjen, ata që janë të prekur nga vetëvrasja, përceptohen ndryshe nga ata që humbin një të afërm nga një tjetër shkak. Ata që kanë humbur të afërm si pasojë e vetëvrasjes, shpesh ndjejnë se të tjerët mund të mos e kuptojnë intensitetin e përgjigjes emocionale si pasojë e kësaj vdekje.

Përsëri, vlen të theksohet se një dëgjim jogjykues mund të bëjë ndoshta diferencën. Ti japësh një personi që ka humbur një person të dashur si pasojë e vetëvrasjes mundësinë për të folur për ndjenjat e veta, për këtë humbje, mund të jetë një ndihmë e madhe për të. Ti mundësosh atyre të shprehin ndjenjat mund të jetë lehtësuese por edhe i ndihmon ata të hedhin një hap nga dhimbja.

Të ndihmojmë njerëzit të jenë në kontakt me shërbimet

Megjithëse mbështetja e miqve dhe të afërmve mund të jetë domethënëse për ata persona që janë në rrezik për vetëvrasje si dhe ata që kanë humbur një të afërm në këtë mënyrë mund të jetë efektive, jo gjithmonë është e mjaftueshme. Në shumicën e rasteve, nevojitet një ndihmë e specializuar. Kjo ndihmë mund të marrë forma të ndryshme. Në vendin tonë, kjo ndihmë lidhet me qendrat e shëndetit mendor, spitale (Klinika e Toksikologjiisë dhe Adiktologjisë në Qendrën Spitalore Universitare “Nënë Tereza”, klinika private të specializuara në këtë drejtim, ose organizata që punojnë në këtë drejtim.

Të arrijmë të parandalojmë…

Ka shumë organizata në botë të cilat janë të përqëndruara në përpjekjet për të parandaluar vetëvrasjen. Mund të shkëmbehen eksperiencat në mënyrë që të ofrohet një ndërhyrje efektive. Mendohet se mund të jetë shumë e sukseshme marrja e modeleve më të mira në këtë fushë pasi mendohet se kjo gjë ndoshta mundëson reduktimin e numrit të presonave që vdesin si pasojë e vetëvrasjes si dhe të personave tek të cilët këto vdekje kanë efekt shkaktërrues.

10 DE SEPTIEMBRE “DIA MUNDIA Y NACIONAL DE LA PREVENCION AL SUICIDIO”
JORNADA DE PROMOCION POR LA VIDA

Por medio de la presente queremos invitar a todos los efectores de salud, Instituciones y sectores gubernamentales y no gubernamentales, equipos de salud, organizaciones de usuarios y familiares de los servicios de salud, asociaciones de jóvenes y a la comunidad en general, a sumarse y participar de la Jornada que se llevara a cabo el día 10 de Septiembre bajo el lema “Por la promoción de la salud y la vida”.

Cabe aclarar que esta iniciativa tiene como finalidad la articulación y coordinación de las actividades a nivel provincial intersectorial, intentando generar una organización, generación, difusión y participación de la comunidad jujeña en general, en post de lograr un Jujuy saludable. Más allá de las definiciones que se puedan enunciar desde diversos marcos teóricos, lo importante es ubicar al suicido como una conflictiva psicosocial, atravesada por componentes históricos, socioeconómicos, culturales, biológicos y psicológicos que implica poder pensar en una atención de esta problemática desde una perspectiva más amplia.

Por tal motivo entendemos que si bien los servicios de salud pública deben ofrecer una atención a la urgencia que esto implica, consideramos que lo primordial es el abordaje a partir de acciones de promoción para una vida saludable, y la perspectiva de prevención del padecimiento e intervención temprano, considerando los factores protectores, a partir de lo cual poder generar acciones y herramientas alternativas que estén destinadas y permitan la inclusión social y comunitaria (Ley de protección de la salud mental y adicciones 26.657), accediendo a pensar qué lugar ocupa la misma comunidad, y a la cual pertenece el sujeto que sufre, cuales son los aportes que puede realizar a esta conflictiva, otorgándoles la oportunidad de que todos los actores sociales estén involucrados y puedan asumir un rol activo en el abordaje de las problemáticas que aquejan a su comunidad, La idea principal es que el día 10 de Septiembre se realice una Jornada, donde toda la comunidad pueda participar desde su lugar y aporte. Se habrá una radio abierta y todo el que desee participar pueda desde puestas de stand, donde podrán promocionar sus actividades, otorgar información, mostrar sus producciones y acciones. Habrá espectáculos musicales y de baile, a la vez que se realizara la pintada de un mural donde todos podremos participar.

A todos los que deseen sumarse los invitamos a participar de la próxima reunión organizativa que se llevará a cabo el día viernes 04 del corriente a 11:00hs en la oficina de la Coordinación de Salud Mental ubicada en el edificio del Ministerio de Salud de la Provincia, primer piso oficina 6.

Sabemos que a lo largo de la semana de esta fecha tan importante, desde diferentes actores realizan a su vez actividades, es por tal motivo que nos ofrecemos a que se pongan en contacto con nosotros, así los podemos ayudamos en la difusión y de ser posible sumarnos a la actividad que estén programando.

Auburn, New South Wales


Auburn Candlelight Walk

"TOGETHER FOR HOPE" Suicide Prevention Awareness Candlelight Walk in Auburn. Auburn is arguably Sydney's most multicultural centre and the transit point for many new arrivals and refugees. We aim to raise awareness and reduce the toll of suicide in this community whilst connecting individuals to advocacy and mental health support services. In this year, the second year of our walk, we have a range of VIP supporters including the State Police Commissioner, Mental Health Commissioner, Leader of the Sate Opposition and Local member,as well as prominent social and sporting clubs. Local schools are supporting the event through drumming and choral groups and food and a water refreshment station will be set up, as well as information giveaaways. This event has grown rapidly and is sending a strong message of hope to many who feel that their voices are not being heard or acknowledged. Last year we had over 200 particpants and we are aiming for more this year, weather permitting.

I am driven

#IAMDRIVEN

World Suicide Prevention Day brings to light one of the largest causes of premature and unnecessary death – suicide. We created #IAMDRIVEN to bring attention to the importance of suicide prevention, challenge the stigma surrounding suicide, and to give hope to people vulnerable to it. Leading up to WSPD on September 10 we want you to answer our question: “What drives you?”.

Our message is simple: You can blame your circumstances on fate or bad luck, or you can face it and tackle it head on. The rest of your life, the rest of you, is being shaped right now. The rest of your life is a long time. The rest of your life can change. But the rest of your life starts with your first step. So with all of your dreams and the choices you make, what’s driving you to become the person you want to be? Get involved with #IAMDRIVEN in any of the following ways:

  1. Submit your #IAMDRIVEN entry
  2. Wear an #IAMDRIVEN sticker and start a conversation
  3. oin us at our #IAMDRIVEN End Of Month Meet

AISRAP's World Suicide Prevention Day Forum: Thursday 10 September 2015

AISRAP will be hosting the annual regional World Suicide Prevention Day Forum at The Greek Club, 29 Edmondstone St, South Brisbane.

'Preventing Suicide: Reaching Out and Saving Lives' is the theme of the 2015 World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD), an initiative of the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) and the World Health Organization. Conceived by Professor Diego De Leo, WSPD has taken place on 10th September each year since 2003. It serves as a call to action to individuals and organisations to prevent suicide. This year, the theme encourages us all to consider the role that offering support may play in combating suicide.

We invite you to join us for a day of insightful, motivating and meaningful discussion....
Reaching out to those who have been bereaved by suicide
Reaching out to put people in touch with relevant services
Reaching out to the suicide prevention community
Reaching out on World Suicide Prevention Day
Please, reach out and save lives.

View website to see Guest Presenters or to register.

AISRAP Guest Presenters

The Voices of Lived Experience - Guest Panel at AISRAP's World Suicide Prevention Day Forum: Thursday 10 September 2015 The panel will reflect the collective voices of those who have been suicidal, attempted suicide, and/or have been bereaved by suicide, in a session that will bring light and direction to suicide prevention, recovery and resilience.

These often 'silenced' voices will be introduced and supported by Chair, Ms Jacinta Hawgood (Senior Lecturer, and Clinical Psychologist at AISRAP), and synthesised with an interactive audience Q & A discussion! This session will be available as a webcast through Redback Conferencing.

It is our hope that the experience of our panelist's will engage, reach out and ultimately, bring hope to consumers, researchers, policy makers, and others with lived experience.

Panel: Martina McGrath, Project Coordinator, Suicide Attempt Survivors Support Group (SASSG) - Pilot Project; Ingrid Ozols, Managing Director, mentalhealth@work (mh@work); Kerrie Keepa, founder of SOS Fast, Survivors of Suicide Fighting Against Suicide Toll, and Mr Murray Hurst, QRL Welfare & Education Manager, National Rugby League.

Suisid (intihar) və onun səbəbləri

İntihar və onun səbəbləri elmi araşdırmaların, psixoloqların, eləcədə dünya ictimaiyyətinin son onilliklərdə daha çox toxulunan mövzulardan biridir. Son yarım əsrdə dünyada intihar edən insanların sayı 60% artıb. Məsələn, intihar qurbanlarının sayı müharibədə və qətl nəticəsində qurbanların ümumi sayından çoxdur. Dünyada hər 40 saniyədə bir insan intihar edir, hər il bu rəqəmdən 13 dəfə çox insan intihara cəhd edir. Hər 13 intihar cəhdindən 12-si uğursuz, biri isə ölümlə nəticələnir. Bu siyahıya düşənlərin əksəriyyəti isə 15-34 yaş arasında olan gənc insanlardır.

İntiharın qarşısının alınması məqsədi ilə yaradılmış Beynəlxalq Assosiasiya, Ümumdünya Səhiyyə Təşkilatı (ÜST) ilə birgə ictimaiyyəti bu gündə intihar nəticəsində itirilə biləcək insan həyatını xilas etmək məqsədilə insanlarda məsuliyyət hissinin gücləndirilməsinə,bu istiqamətdə konkret tədbirlərə əl atılmasına cağırır.Məsələn, 10 sentyabr - Ümumdünya intiharın qarşısının alınması günü elan edilmişdir. ÜST-nin hesabatına əsasən, ildə 1 milyon insan həyatına qəsd edir və 2020-ci ilədək bu rəqəmin 1,5 dəfə artacağı proqnozlaşdırılır. Hal-hazırda intiharların səviyyəsinə görə Qərbi Avropa öndə gedir. Dünyada intihar edənlərin təxminən 1% isə Azərbaycanın payına düşür.

İntihar-insanın özü-özünə etdiyi qəsd, öz həyatına son qoyması, bunun planlaşdırılması və həyata keçirməsidir. İntihar insanların özlərini cəzalandırmaq mexanizmi deyil, sadəcə problemlərdən çıxış yolu tapa bilməməyin bir ifadə formasıdır. Təəcüblü də olsa, qeyd etmək lazımdır ki, intihar edəndə insanların məqsədi özlərini öldürmək olmur. Məqsəd yalnız və yalnız problemdən uzaqlaşmaqdır.

İntihar-psixoloji durumla bağlı bir hadisədir, və bu halda insan bilərəkdən özünü həyatdan məhrum etmək istəyir. İntiharın psixologiyası, hər şeydən əvvəl ümidsizlik psixologiyasıdır. Ümid olduqda, insan ən təhlükəli sınaq və əziyyətlərə qatlaşır. Ümidin itirilməsi isə insanı intihara meylləndirir. İntihar edən şəxslərin 90% depressiyaya meylli insanlardır. Onların 15% intihara cəhd nəticəsində həyatlarını itirirlər. Depressiyada olan kişilərin intiharı nəticəsində həyatını itirmə nisbəti qadınlara görə daha yüksəkdir.

Müasir dövrün insanı bütün həll yollarının tükəndiyini hiss etdikdə intiharı yeganə çıxış yolu kimi görür. İntihar cəhdləri ölümlə nəticələnməsə də, onların buraxdığı bir sıra izlər həyatın qalan hissəsində ciddi problemlərə gətirib çıxarır.

İntiharın səbəblərini aşağı sosial-iqtisadi vəziyyətdə, ailə münaqişələrində, psixi pozuntularda, şiddətə meyillilikdə, düşünmə pozuntularında, spirtli içkilərdən istifadədə, narkotik maddələrdən asılılıqda və s. bu kimi problemlərdə axtarmaq lazımdır. İntiharın səbəblərini tək bir faktorla bağlamaq düzgün olmaz.

Günümüzdə intihar artıq insanın şəxsi problemi deyildir. İstisna halları nəzərə almasaq, əminliklə demək olar ki, intihar cəmiyyətin, cəmiyyətdə yaşanan mənəvi boşluğun, insanların kütləvi özgələşməsinin, biri-birlərinə diqqətsizliyinin, dayaq durmamasının problemdir. Suisidentlər obyektiv və ya subyektiv səbəblərdən daxili harmoniyasını itirmiş və disharmoniya ilə yaşaya bilməyən insanlardır. İntihar qarşısı alına biləcək ölüm səbəbidir. Vaxtında göstərilən diqqət və qayğı bir insanın həyatına bərabər böyük və əhəmiyyətli bir işdir. Suisid hallarının profilaktikasını da əslində elə bundan başlamaq lazımdır. Unutmaq olmaz ki, intihar hadisələri bütün insanlara, xüsusilə də uşaqlara və yeniyetmələrə çox mənfi psixoloji təsir edir. Ümumiyyətlə, profilaktik tədbirlər bütün yaş dövrlərini əhatə etməlidir.

İntihar haqqında düşünən bir çox insan qərarsız, yəni hər iki tərəfə meylli olur. Çoxları əslində ölmək istəmir, onlar acılarının bitməsini istəyirlər. Bir dəfə intihara cəhd etmiş insana dəstək olunmalıdır ki, o, yenidən bu addıma əl atmasın. İntihar riskini artıran faktorlarla bağlı insanlarımız bilgili olmalıdırlar.

Özünü ümidsiz və köməksiz hiss edən birini gördükdə, birinin ailədən, dostlardan, sosial həyatdan kənarda durduğunu, davranışlarında dəyişiklik hiss etdikdə, depressiyaya düşdüyünü, yuxu pozuntuları, görünüşündə deyişiklik gördüyünüzdə, yazılarında, sosial şəbəkələrdəki paylaşmalarında, rəsmlərində ölüm, özünü məhv etmək mövzularına davamlı müraciət sezdikdə, bir sözlə, çarəsiz görünən bir insana rast gəldikdə, onun tezliklə intihara əl ata biləcəyini düşünün və mütləq ona kömək əlinizi uzadın.

Il arrive, comme à son habitude, à huit heures précises, sort un revolver et abat deux de ses supérieurs. Puis il s’enferme dans son bureau. Dans l’attente des forces de l’ordre, cet homme, jusque là sans histoire, revoit des pans de sa vie et les évènements qui l’on conduit à commettre son acte…

22h00 – 23h00 Débat
Le docteur Marc Goltzberg, neuropsychaitre et expert auprès des tribunaux, Madame Stéphanie De Maere, directrice du Centre de Prévention du Suicide et psychologue et Madame Axelle Dejardin, psychologue seront heureux de répondre à vos questions et de débattre autour du sujet : La souffrance au travail peut mener à des conduites agressives sur autrui et soi-même.

СВЕТОВЕН ДЕН ЗА ПРЕВЕНЦИЯ НА САМОУБИЙСТВАТА – 10 СЕПТЕМВРИ

Според СЗО и оценки на тежестта на заболяванията, самоубийството е сериозен проблем за общественото здраве в страните с високи доходи и е очертаващ се проблем в страните с ниски и средни доходи. Самоубийството е една от водещите причини за смърт в света, особено сред младите хора. Близо един милион души по света умират от самоубийство всяка година. Това съответства на едно самоубийство на всеки 40 секунди. Броят човешки животи загубени всяка година чрез самоубийство надвишават броя на смъртните случаи, дължащи се на убийства и войни взети заедно. Тези данни не включват нефатални опити за самоубийство, които се срещат много по-често от смъртните случаи.

Голяма част от хората, които умират поради самоубийство страдат от психични разстройства. Данните показват, че делът на психичните разстройства е 25% от всички заболявания през последните две десетилетия, което ги поставя на първо място по значимост /по-значими от онкологичните и сърдечно-съдовите заболявания/. И все пак значителен брой от хората с психични разстройства, които са извършили самоубийство не са търсили здравни или социални услуги във времето преди суицида. В много случаи не са налице достатъчно услуги, които да помогнат на хората в нужда по време на криза.

Тази липса на достъп до подходящи грижи е един от многото фактори, които увеличават стигмата, свързана с психични заболявания и със суицидни мисли и поведение. Този тип стигма е дълбоко вкоренена в повечето общества и може да възникне по различни причини. Една от причините за стигмата е просто липсата на знания. Преодоляването й може да стане чрез предоставяне на редица обществени образователни програми, които са насочени към специфични подгрупи в рамките на обществото (в зависимост от възрастта, образованието, религиозна принадлежност и др.). Целта на тези програми е да се повиши обществената осведоменост относно характеристиките и лечението на хора с психични заболявания и/или суицидно поведение и на наличните ресурси за лечение в помощ на хората с тези проблеми.

Но знанието не е достатъчно за борба със стигмата. Негативните нагласи /предразсъдъци/ за лица с психични заболявания и/или суицидни мисли или импулси са често срещани в много общности. Тези негативни нагласи често не се променят с познаването на психичните заболявания и суицидното поведение. В действителност, много от здравните специалисти, които се занимават с хора страдащи от психични заболявания или суицидни намерения често притежават отрицателно, негативно отношение към такива пациенти. Това може да доведе до липса на оптимална грижа и подкрепа за лица в криза. Промяната на тези неблагоприятни нагласи изисква дългосрочни усилия за промяна на основните културни ценности на общността и успоредно с това усилия, за да се променят нормите за лечение на медицинските специалисти.

Стигмата също е и основният мотив за дискриминация - неподходящи или незаконни ограничения на свободите на хората с психични заболявания или суицидно поведение. Такива ограничения могат да се появят на лично, обществено или институционално равнище. Един краен пример е криминализирането на суицидно поведение, което все още се среща в много страни. Дискриминацията може да възпрепятства или разубеди хората, засегнати от психични заболявания и/или суицидни мисли/поведение, да потърсят професионална помощ и да се върнат към нормалните си социални роли, след провеждане на лечение за един епизод на болест или криза. Ясно е, че криминализирането на суицидно поведение може да има мощен възпиращ ефект при хора в криза, които отчаяно се нуждаят да получат достъп до грижи и подкрепа, без да бъдат съдени и наказани.

На правителствено или административно ниво, стигмата може да окаже влияние върху разпределението на ресурсите. В групите с ниски и средни доходи заклеймените като хора с психични заболявания и суицидно поведение получават много по-малка част от бюджета, отколкото е необходимо, предвид огромното им въздействие върху цялостното здраве на общността. Освен това, за набиране на средства, усилията за подкрепа на обществени здравни инициативи в тази област често стават плоски, поради липса на интерес от страна на общини, правителства и международни агенции за финансиране, т.е. заради стигмата.

Опитите за борба със стигмата, чрез предприемане на мащабни програми за обществено образование, са с ограничена ефективност при намаляването й, свързани с психичните заболявания и самоубийствата. Новаторски методи, които са по-целева група специфични или използват творчески възникващите социални медии трябва да бъдат разработени и тествани. Стигмата ще продължи да бъде основна пречка за лечение на психични заболявания, както и за предотвратяване на самоубийства.

Световният ден за превенция на самоубийствата предвижда специална възможност за префокусиране на колективната енергия за решаването на този фундаментален проблем. Промяната на културните нагласи за психичните заболявания и суицидно поведение изисква научна информираност за множеството фактори, които влияят върху обществените норми и общите усилия на широк кръг от заинтересовани страни от общността за продължителен период от време. Световният ден за превенция на самоубийствата е идея, която трябва да вдъхнови хората да работят за постигането на целта като развият творчески нови методи за премахване на стигмата. Комплексни местни или национални планове за превенция на самоубийствата не могат да достигнат пълния си потенциал, докато проблемът със стигмата не бъде ефективно решен.

На Световният ден за превенция на самоубийствата, IASP е инициатор на първата си основна дейност, която ще бъде извършена колективно по целия свят, с цел глобално повишаване на осведомеността за самоубийство, неговото предотвратяване и намаляване на стигмата, свързана с него.

Today in Canada …
11 people will end their lives by suicide.
210 others will attempt to end their lives.
77-110 people will become newly bereaved by suicide.

On September 10th, World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) we are calling on all Canadians to “reach out” and join us in not only reducing this number but making suicide a thing of the past/

Preventing Suicide: Reaching Out and Saving Lives Across Canada.

Let your friends, family and colleagues know how you plan to “reach out” by sharing on social media and tagging your post with #WSPD2015.

Download this form, print and get involved. With increased awareness, collaboration, access to improved support and resources we can save lives across Canada. Suicide prevention is everybody’s business.

Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention - World Suicide Prevention Day

Five ways to get involved:

Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention World Suicide Prevention Day Reach Out

World Suicide Prevention Day is an initiative of the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Now in its 12th year, WSPD takes place on September 10th each year serving as a suicide prevention call to action for organizations and individuals alike.

This year’s theme is “Preventing Suicide: Reaching Out and Saving Lives” and suggests we all play a role in preventing suicide. Suicide prevention begins with recognizing the warning signs and taking them seriously. Be sympathetic, non-judgemental, patient, calm and accepting. It is often difficult for those who are suffering to talk about their feelings; by being supportive you are encouraging them to do so.

For 30 years CASP has been dedicated to reducing suicide rates and the devastating impact on society by supporting Canadians with important information about suicide prevention, intervention and postvention. We have developed the CASP BluePrint for the Canadian National Suicide Prevention Strategy and will continue to champion the implementation of this strategy with cooperation across all levels of government and integration with Health Canada’s Healthy Living Strategy. We are working on the implementation of a national suicide crisis line network, a much needed service for all Canadians. And we will continue to advocate for, and support those who are experiencing thoughts of suicide and suicide loss survivors.

Edmonton, Alberta


Keep Him Here

Across the province of Alberta, communities,organizations and individuals will be involved in the Keep Him Here campaign. The Keep Him Here Campaign focuses on suicide awareness and prevention in middle age men. Middle aged men, our fathers, brothers, sons and friends, are among the least likely to seek help when struggling with mental health issues and often have limited support networks. Coupled together with the negative societal perceptions about mental health and suicide, many men are discouraged from pursuing much needed help. The Keep Him Here campaign focuses on empowering the social networks of middle aged men (their significant others, families and friends) to take action.

The campaign uses an image of a coffee cup as a common theme to highlight the need to normalize conversations about suicide and mental health issues, as Albertans frequently gather and talk about their lives over a cup of coffee. The coffee cup links campaigns resources to the key message, “start the conversation”. The hope is that we can talk about suicide with our loved one like any other important health issue. More information on the campaign and resources can be found at keephimhere.ca.

The provincial launch event will occur in an LRT Station in Edmonton. Commuters will be provided with information on the campaign and invited to enjoy a free cup of coffee to take as they continue with their day. The event will occur from 7 -9 am and we will have spokespeople including the CMHA Alberta Executive Director, the Provincial Chief Addiction and Mental Health Officer, an RCMP officer with lived experience and the IPC Associate Director available to speak with media.

In honour of World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10), the Vancouver Island Crisis Society is presenting another workshop in your community:

How to Avoid the 10 Most Common Mistakes of Suicide Intervention

Over the last few years, we have seen a shift in the research community that places more emphasis on the unique needs of a person at risk for suicide and the kinds of responses that are most helpful. This shift has been reflected and highlighted at recent conferences for the American Association of Suicidology, the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention, and in the published literature. Vancouver Island Crisis Society’s fourth series of workshops commemorating World Suicide Prevention Day will highlight this research and provide helpful tools for avoiding what researchers call The 10 Most Common Errors of Suicide Interventionists.

This workshop will be helpful for anyone working directly with people at risk for suicide such as front-line staff, crisis line workers, physicians, clinicians, support workers, nurses, and teachers.

Join the global community in observing World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) on September 10, 2015. According to the recently released World Health Organization (WHO) report: Preventing Suicide: A Global Imperative, over 800,000 people die by suicide across the world each year. We may not be able to pinpoint the exact figure, but we do know that each individual suicide is a tragic loss of life. It is hard to imagine the extreme psychological pain that leads someone to decide that suicide is the only course of action.

Berwick World Suicide Prevention Day conference

Mardi Burton holds a poster raising awareness of the second annual suicide awareness conference the Annapolis Valley Coalition of Communities Addressing Suicide Together (CAST) will be holding in Berwick Sept. 10.

September conference a solid starting point

BERWICK - A community-wide understanding of the power of words and the influence of kindness can go a long way when it comes to suicide prevention

That said, the second annual suicide awareness conference to be hosted by the Annapolis Valley Coalition of Communities Addressing Suicide Together (CAST) in September has been organized around a “power of words” theme.

“The goal of the conference is to, first of all, continue the conversation about suicide prevention,” says local CAST member Mardi Burton.

“We need to be talking about suicide in an open and useful way.”

The one-day conference, slated for Sept. 10 at the United Church Campground in Berwick, aims to educate, connect and inspire.

“It’s about communities coming together and building community resilience so that it’s a safer, more welcoming and accepting place for all of us,” said Burton.

Participants will touch on the social, economic and health factors that can lead to suicide risks and the community resources available.

“If you’re dealing with those things by yourself, it can be incredibly overwhelming and despairing,” said Burton. “Just by, one at a time, having the connections with people who can actually help you solve some of those problems can create hope in a person’s life.”

The conference will include sessions for people who have lived with suicide risk and loved ones impacted by suicide. Community leaders, policy makers and media are encouraged to attend, along with members of the general public.

“The idea is that we need to address this health problem at every level,” said Burton.

The workshops and group discussions will demonstrate how seemingly small gestures – showing kindness, listening attentively and acknowledging concerns – can make a big difference in the world of someone struggling with despair.

“We need to start talking about what we can do to prevent suicide because it’s devastating for families and communities, and there are very few of us that haven’t been touched by suicide,” said Burton.

“It’s from the conversations that action happens.”

Dr. Colleen McMillan from the University of Waterloo will attend the conference as a featured speaker focusing on the topic of how an individual’s stories can be documented in useful and respectful ways in healthcare records.

Educator and researcher Asha Croggon will return for a second consecutive year to discuss better practices for suicide prevention. Well-known mental health advocate Laura Burke is attending as a guest speaker addressing how society relates to mental health issues, and singer-songwriter Hughie McDonell has agreed to perform.

The conference, Burton said, is one part of an ongoing movement that aspires to create hope.

“Depression is not just something that they have to live with. There’s lots of ways that we can challenge it.”

CAST is hosting the conference in partnership with Nova Scotia Health Authority, Canadian Mental Health Association – Kings County, Greenwood Military Family Resource Centre, Injury Free Nova Scotia, Acadia University and the RCMP.

There will be a pre-conference Safe Talk workshop the evening of Sept. 9 for those interested in learning how to be suicide alert and how to connect people at risk with resources that can help.

For more information about the upcoming conference, contact Mardi Burton at mardi.burton@nshealth.ca or 902-538-1157.

Semi Colon Fundraiser Tattoo – National Suicide Prevention week 

Halifax

Semi Colon Fundraiser Tattoo – National Suicide Prevention week

World Suicide Preventation/Awareness Day is Sept 10th. We will host this event to help bring awareness of the prevalence of Suicide and the struggles people face.The Rehtaeh Parsons Society will be joined by Six Points Tattoo Parlour to raise funds and help reduce the stigma of mental health. We will be having a two day tattoo fundraiser. The semi colon represents a break, a pause in the sentence. When a writer uses a semi colon it means that he/she could have ended the thought, the story etc.but chose not to. Just like struggles are not meant to be the end to a life. Its just a break in the story of our lives and the semi colon tattoo is reminder that life is worth living. A remeinder that life is a series of ups and downs and everything in between.

Rehtaeh had several tattoos and all were very meaningful. Her very first tattoo was on her 16th BDay. Instead of celebrating as planned she found herself in a very dark place because of her trauma and she chose to have a tattoo of a crow feather with birds flying out of the feather to remind her that there are new beginnings ahead. She would want others to remember that in darkness there is light. I know that was not her ending but it should have been. If she were here she would want a semi colon tattoo also. Its a pretty meaningful symbol.

All proceeds of this event go to the Rehtaeh Parsons Society which continues to bring awareness to various issues surrounding mental health. Please come out and join us. Tattoos will be $30.00 each and will be the basic black semi colon. We have chosen two days to have the event from noon til 7pm on Sept 9th and Sept 10th 2015. Hope to see you there.

Canadian Mental Health Association Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge (CMHA HKPR) World Suicide Prevention Day

Event Details: World Suicide Prevention Day – September 10 2015
Date: September 10, 2015
Time: 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. – candlelight vigil at 7:30
Location: Millennium Park, Peterborough, Ontario

The Canadian Mental Health Association Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge (CMHA HKPR) in collaboration with Telecare Peterborough will be hosting our annual awareness and education event on Thursday, September 10th, at Millennium Park, followed by a candlelight vigil in observation of World Suicide Prevention Day.

The Association for Suicide Prevention (ASP) and The World Health Organization (WHO) are co-sponsoring this year’s theme Preventing Suicide: Reaching Out and Saving Lives. The event is as a call to action to individuals and organizations supporting suicide prevention. This year, the theme encourages us to consider the role that offering support may play in preventing suicide.The goal through this awareness event is to strengthen connections, promote conversations about mental wellness and know how to help, protect and care for each other – and ourselves - in times of crisis. As well, there will be activities and resources available to encourage self-care so that everyone can maintain their mental health.

What we know about Suicide:
Almost 4.000 Canadians die by suicide every year. Suicide is the second-most common cause of death among young people 15-24. However, anyone can be at risk of suicide regardless of age, gender, socio-economic status, etc. Suicide is a complex issue without a single determinant. Rather, suicide typically results from the interaction of many factors, such as loss, addiction, trauma, depression, serious physical illness, and major life changes.

CMHA HKPR and our community partners are dedicated to creating a suicide safer community. Over the past year we have trained over 700 individuals in suicide prevention, through safeTALK. Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) and Mental Health First Aide. CMHA HKPR’s Team55 Let’s Tackle Suicide Awareness has been an important partner in this endeavor and is sponsoring this event.

The event will be in two parts. From 5:00-7:30 community agencies will have information available for those who wish to drop by and gather resources for themselves of someone they are concerned about. Agencies include CMHA HKPR, Telecare, Peterborough Aides Resource Network, The John Howard Society, The Elizabeth Fry Society, Youth Emergency Shelter, Peterborough Regional Health Centre, Hospice Peterborough and others. There will be demonstrations on how individuals can develop their own Wellness Recovery Action Plans (WRAP) by Kait Kelly of CMHA HKPR; an opportunity to design your own personal journal by Deb Reynolds and a Tai Chi demonstration by George Kerr. Tai Chi will take place at 5:30. The other demonstrations will be ongoing between 5 and 7:30. The candlelight vigil will begin at 7:30, including a lighting of candles, in recognition of lives lost to suicide. The vigil will conclude by 8:00 p.m.

Sioux Lookout, Ontario


We are a small rural Northern Ontario town in Canada and we have felt many big losses in our community to suicide. We have recently developed a taskforce aimed at Promoting Life and thought that engaging the community and launching our committee through the Cycle the Globe campaign might be a good idea. Due to some of the physical ailments in our group and not owning a bike a lot of the participants will be walking. Their mileage will still be added to our collective group. We love the idea of handing out certificates that you have available on the website and wondered if we could edit it slightly to say walked/cycled. Please let me know your thoughts. We just want to make this activity inclusive of all our participants.

(The group was sent an edited certificate.)

Le 10 septembre 2015 aura lieu la 13 e Journée mondiale de la prévention du suicide (JMPS). À l'échelle mondiale, on estime qu'un suicide a lieu toutes les quarante secondes et une tentative toutes les trois secondes, ce qui correspond à un million de suicides chaque année. C'est plus que l'ensemble des personnes tuées par les guerres et les catastrophes naturelles. À cela s'ajoute dix millions de nouveaux endeuillés. La Journée du 10 septembre vise donc à sensibiliser nos communautés à l'ampleur du problème et aux façons de le prévenir.

Initiative de l'Association internationale pour la prévention du suicide, en collaboration avec l'Organisation mondiale de la Santé, la JMPS est soulignée partout dans le monde, notamment au Québec. Pour cette édition, l'AQPS propose le thème « Merci de t'engager en prévention du suicide! Tu fais la différence. ». Il vise à reconnaître le travail et l'engagement en prévention du suicide des bénévoles, intervenants, citoyens, collègues et employeurs québécois. Le 10 septembre, les membres et partenaires de l'AQPS sont invités à souligner l'apport des individus et des organisations qui font la différence au quotidien dans leur région ou leur municipalité.

Merci de t'engager en prévention du suicide! Tu fais la différence.

Parce que nous croyons qu'un simple merci peut ensoleiller des coeurs, il nous apparaît primordial de remercier l'ensemble des acteurs indispensables à la prévention du suicide au Québec, dont les employés et les bénévoles des organisations en prévention du suicide et ceux du grand réseau de la santé et des services sociaux. Dans un contexte de restructuration de ce réseau, où les incertitudes et les changements sont nombreux, l'occasion est propice pour leur communiquer notre profonde reconnaissance. Ils sont des acteurs clés du filet humain qui protège et supporte les personnes vulnérables.

La prochaine Journée mondiale misera également sur le caractère collectif de la prévention du suicide. Chacun de nous peut jouer un rôle dans ce vaste projet humanitaire. Chacun de nous peut faire la différence. Les récentes avancées en prévention du suicide illustrent parfaitement le nécessaire engagement et la collaboration d'acteurs variés de la société. Pour sauver davantage de vies, le Québec a plus que jamais besoin de cette vaste mobilisation sociale. Continuons le combat. Encourageons les gens qui s'y investissent avec coeur et détermination en les remerciant.

Quoi faire pour souligner l'événement dans votre milieu ?

Plusieurs organisations proposeront des activités publiques telles que des marches, des rassemblements dans un lieu public, des conférences, des spectacles-bénéfice, des activités médiatiques, etc. D'autres opteront pour des collaborations avec des milieux de travail ou des organismes communautaires de leur région. Voici les activités principales proposées par l'AQPS pour cette édition :

Remettre une carte postale à des gens que vous voulez remercier : il suffit de commander des cartes postales, d'inscrire sur chacune d'elles le prénom d'une personne à remercier, puis de transmettre ces cartes en main propre ou par la poste. L'affichette peut être utilisée en appui à la campagne, sur les babillards de votre organisation. Allumer une chandelle : le 10 septembre à 20h, l'Association internationale pour la prévention du suicide invitent les habitants de toutes les nations à allumer une chandelle près d'une fenêtre. Une action simple pour démontrer votre appui à la cause, en souvenir d'un être cher et pour tous les endeuillés par suicide.

Moose Jaw World Suicide Prevention Day - Journey to Hope

Journey To Hope group with Facilitator Della Ferguson

An announcement from WJ Jones and Sons came yesterday evening in regards to Suicide Prevention Day coming up in September.

Della Ferguson is the Facilitator for Journey to Hope in Moose Jaw, and explains what their announcement was all about.

"We are presenting an all high school event on World Suicide Prevention day which is September 10th. That is going to be an event where all the students will get the chance to see Rob Nash. It is a concert style presentation, and it has a message filled with inspiration and hope. It's going to be a exciting time."

She says the point of the day is to help anyone who is suffering by any means, to move on.

"We want to raise hope. We hope that if there is any student that is feeling a heaviness of heart that they will hear a message of inspiration. We hope Rob can provide that message of hope and moving on."

Following that announcement, Journey to Hope explained that they now have another plan for later in September.

"We have a walk on September 26th at the Crescent Park amphitheater. That is how we are raising funds for the suicide awareness prevention program. Pledge funds are available from WJ Jones and Sons or by contacting any one of our Journey to Hope members."

Profits from the walk will be donated to the Riverside Mission as well as Transition House.

Intento de Suicidio: un asunto de todos

El día 10 de septiembre fue designado por la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS) y la Asociación Internacional para la Prevención del Suicidio (IASP), como el Día Mundial para la Prevención de este comportamiento autodestructivo. Las tasas de suicidio en el mundo han aumentado de forma notoria, sobre todo en personas jóvenes. Este aumento, puede significar un llamado de atención para los profesionales del área de la salud mental e iniciar la comprensión de este fenómeno de formas diferentes.

Uno de los comportamientos autodestructivos es el intento de suicidio, realidad que debe verse como problema de salud pública y que se convierte en un síntoma de las múltiples situaciones difíciles a nivel emocional, familiar, social, cultural, económico, entre otros, por las cuales pasan nuestros niños y jóvenes. Estas ameritan un análisis serio. El intento de suicidio no es un juego de niños, tal como la plantean Vásquez y Quijano en su investigación “Cuando el Intento de Suicidio es cosa de Niños”, realizada en el 2013, publicada en la Revista Colombiana de Psiquiatría, muchas veces se observa desde un imaginario social, como un simple acto de “llamar la atención”. Siendo este un tema complejo y doloroso, tanto para los niños y adolescentes como para sus familiares, implica para los profesionales, educadores, familiares, padres, cuidadores y sociedad en general, darle importancia a lo que nuestros niños, niñas, adolescentes, jóvenes, manifiestan como sus propias angustias, miedos, frustraciones, emociones, entre otros; es decir, escucharlos en serio, pues ellos también cargan con preocupaciones propias de su ciclo vital y así como las preocupaciones de los adultos, sus asuntos también son de ¡“vida o muerte”!

Pues ciertamente, en medio de los afanes de la vida cotidiana, en nuestras familias, no se tienen los espacios de convivencia y de comunicación, necesarios para que todos y cada uno de los miembros de la familia, sean adultos, niños, jóvenes o adultos mayores, se sientan escuchados y apoyados, independientemente del estrato socioeconómico al cual se pertenezca.

En la investigación realizada por Vásquez y Quijano, el grupo de pacientes analizados, mantiene la constante de un adolescente, cuyo primer intento de suicidio fue por intoxicación de medicamentos. Un dato de vital importancia para los padres de familia o cuidadores, ya que la mayoría de estos medicamentos, niños y jóvenes los encuentran al alcance de su mano, disponibles en cualquier parte del hogar.

Otro elemento a tener en cuenta, es que los datos estadísticos muestran que los intentos de suicidio y suicidios consumados están entre los 12 y 18 años; sin embargo, también hay niños menores de 12 años, que sí intentan suicidarse, pero que en ocasiones son clasificados como accidentes del hogar, sin prestarle la debida atención a este acto.

Se hace necesario realizar, en este día, un llamado de atención a los padres y cuidadores, para que no descarten atender con profesionales lo que hasta ahora, con vergüenza han querido llamar “accidente casero” y el intento de suicidio de menores de 12 años y adolescentes, no pase por alto, sin obtener apoyo profesional.

El Intento de suicidio no es un juego de niños, las causas de su ocurrencia son multidimensionales, entre estos, factores asociados a trastornos de ansiedad y depresión, con una fuerte asociación con disfunción cognitiva como factor de vulnerabilidad. Según Vásquez y Quijano (2013), otros factores que pueden estar relacionados con las condiciones de vulnerabilidad en las cuales se encuentra el menor de 12 años y los adolescentes, tales como situación de pobreza, marginación social, discapacidad física o cognitiva, disfuncionalidad familiar, violencia intrafamiliar, abuso sexual, niveles altos de exigencia para su edad, dificultades en la identidad y orientación sexual, presión de pares, entre otros.

Los intentos de suicidio en niños y adolescentes, dejan muchas preguntas, tales como ¿Por qué lo hizo?, ¿lo hizo para castigarme?, ¿qué le falta?, ¿por qué quiere llamar la atención de esta manera?. Igualmente, entran en juego los imaginarios sociales, el “¿qué van a pensar los demás?”, ¿por qué será, que a nuestra familia siempre le sucede lo peor?, entre otras. Estas son preguntas que desde la academia, a través de proyectos de investigación desearíamos ayudar a responder. Es mucho el camino que nos falta por recorrer, pero es una labor urgente, pues los niños, niñas, adolescentes, jóvenes, adultos, necesitan ser escuchados y darles el apoyo que requieran, según sus diversas necesidades.

Svjetski dan prevencije samoubojstva, 10. rujna 2015.

Svake godine, 10. rujna inicijativom Međunarodnog udruženja za prevenciju samoubojstava (International Association for Suicide Prevention – IASP) obilježava se Svjetski dan prevencije samoubojstva. Osnovni cilj podizanje je svijesti o potrebi i obvezi provođenja akcija u prevenciji samoubojstava na globalnoj razini. Ove godine naglasak je na poticanju brige zajednice, odnosno svih nas za one koje su u potencijalnom riziku da počine samoubojstvo. Iskazivanje interesa za ljude koji nas okružuju i s kojima smo u bilo kojoj vrsti odnosa, razgovor s onima koje procijenimo vulnerabilnijima (u neosuđujućem tonu), iskazivanje podrške, razvijanje socijalnih mreža, načini su kojima možemo pomoći. Društveno izoliranje osobe sklone samoubojstvu znatno povećava rizik dok, s druge strane, čvrste socijalne mreže imaju značajni zaštitni učinak. Svjetska zdravstvena organizacija (World Health Organization - WHO) i partneri pozivaju na prevenciju suicidalnog ponašanja, dostupnost primjerenog liječenja i praćenja osoba koje su pokušale samoubojstvo te na moralno i odgovorno izvješćivanje o samoubojstvima u medijima. Samoubojstvo je kompleksan problem i u svojoj etiologiji sadrži biološke, psihološke i okolišne faktore rizika. Unatoč kompleksnosti ovaj problem je moguće je prevenirati.

Što brojke govore?

Što su rizični čimbenici?

Rizičnim čimbenicima smatraju se:

Treba li razgovarati o samoubojstvu?

Suicidalna osoba samoubojstvo vidi kao rješenje problema koji donosi neizdrživu bol, a koji smatra nerješivim. Većina osoba koje su počinile samoubojstvo želi se riješiti duševne boli i patnje. U suštini ne žele završiti život već patnju. Pružanje pomoći u rješavanju problema i smanjenju boli sprječava samoubojstvo. Svaki nagovještaj ili potencijalnu mogućnost samoubojstva nekoga u našoj okolini moramo shvatiti ozbiljno. Pomoć stručnjaka, ali i članova obitelji i bliskih osoba je upravo u tome da osobu u takvom stanju shvate ozbiljno, pomognu joj da prebrodi krizu i nađe zadovoljavajuća rješenja. Suicidalna osoba osjeća se bespomoćno i često na različite načine traži pomoć okoline. Potrebno je ulagati trajne napore u borbi protiv stigme vezane uz suicid.

Mogu li se samoubojstva prevenirati?

Samoubojstva se mogu prevenirati na tri osnovne razine. Učinkovita prevencija podrazumijeva provođenje sve tri razine prevencije:

Primarna prevencija podrazumijeva prilagodbu socijalnih, ekonomski i bioloških uvjeta kako bi se spriječilo da dio populacije postane suicidalan. To uključuje intervencije na razini populacije (a ne samo na razini individualnih rizičnih faktora). Primjeri ovakvih intervencija su: smanjenje dostupnosti letalnim metodama posebno kad je riječ o rizičnim skupinama, promicanje mentalnog zdravlja, promicanje odgovornog prezentiranja ovog problema u medijima, rad na smanjivanju stigme koja je prisutna kod ovog javnozdravstvenog problema, osnaživanje populacije u traženju pomoći, provođenje edukativnih kampanja s ciljem prepoznavanja suicidalnih namjera osoba u našoj okolini i učenje o mogućnostima intervencije i pomoći.

Sekundarna prevencija - cilj sekundarne prevencije je smanjivanje rizičnih faktora u visokorizičnoj populaciji. Rano prepoznavanje osoba sklonih samoubojstvu, pravovremena dijagnoza i učinkovita terapija ključne su u sekundarnoj prevenciji. Unaprjeđenje prepoznavanja rizičnih faktora na razini primarne zdravstvene zaštite (liječnik obiteljske medicine) najvažnije je u sekundarnoj prevenciji. Edukacija profesionalaca kao što su svećenici, policajci, farmaceuti, nastavnici, odgajatelji, zaposlenici domova za starije i nemoćne osobe, socijalni radnici, a koji su kroz svoju rad često u kontaktu s ljudima (posebno onim dijelom populacije koji bi mogao biti sklon samoubojstvu), također je nužna u sklopu sekundarne prevencije.

Tercijarna prevencija - tercijarna prevencija podrazumijeva sprječavanje ponovnog suicidalnog ponašanja i namjera nakon prvotnog pokušaja ili namjere. Tercijarna prevencija podrazumijeva i rad s osobama iz životnog okruženja suicidalne osobe (članovi obitelji, zajednice, škole i sl.).

Što trebamo činiti na javnozdravstvenoj razini?

Suicid nije samo psihijatrijski već i javnozdravstveni problem. Suicidalno ponašanje i učestalost suicida povezano je i s čimbenicima socijalnog i kulturalnog okruženja (npr. rat, poratno razdoblje, alkoholizam, depresija…). Stvaranje okružja razvijenih društvenih mreža, tolerancije, nenasilja, stvaranjem sustava podrške, povećavanjem socijalne osjetljivosti društva, unaprjeđenjem mentalnog zdravlja, unaprjeđenjem kvalitete života svih građana, stvara se i pozitivno okruženje. Javnozdravstvene kampanje često stavljaju naglasak na rizične faktore. Međutim, u cilju sniženja stope samoubojstava potrebno je veliki dio napora uložiti i u smjeru osnaživanja okruženja u kojem živi suicidalna osoba, odnosno razvijanja zaštitnih mehanizama društva.

Što trebamo činiti...

Zamijenimo tišinu vezanu za problem samoubojstava zainteresiranim i odgovornim pristupom!

JMPS ANTIBES 10 SEPTEMBRE 2015

Le 10 septembre 2015 aura lieu la 13ème Journée mondiale de la prévention du suicide (JMPS).

À l’échelle mondiale, on estime qu’un suicide a lieu toutes les quarante secondes et une tentative toutes les trois secondes, ce qui correspond à environ un million de suicides chaque année. À cela s’ajoute dix millions de nouveaux endeuillés.

Initiative de l’Association internationale pour la prévention du suicide, en collaboration avec l'Organisation mondiale de la Santé, la JMPS est soulignée partout dans le monde, notamment en France.

Sous le thème : "Prévenir le suicide : tendre la main et sauver des vies", cette année est consacrée au rôle que l'aide peut jouer dans la lutte contre le suicide et vise donc à sensibiliser les individus et les organisations à l'ampleur du problème et aux façons de le prévenir.

En effet, les personnes en situation de précarité au plan humain (famille, psychologique) et/ou au plan relationnel et social (travail, économique, culturel) sont à fort risque suicidaire ; le lien est étroit entre précarité, désespoir et gestes suicidaires. Qu'est-ce qui peut faire la différence quand on sait déjà que l'isolement augmente le risque de suicide et que de solides relations sociales protègent ?

Nous tenterons donc de réfléchir ensemble à ce qui pourrait être réalisé pour une meilleure prise en compte du risque suicidaire chez tous ceux qui connaissent la précarité dans leur existence.

Modalités pratiques :
Dates et horaires : Jeudi 10 septembre 2015 à partir de 14h00
Lieu : Centre Hospitalier d'Antibes, salle du Conseil d'Administration (107 avenue de Nice, 06 600 ANTIBES)
Inscriptions : par mail uniquement à rsp@ccas-antibes.fr (cf. bulletin d'inscription ci dessous) avant le 08/09/2015 (une confirmation sera envoyée par mail au plus tard la veille de la manifestation)

Αυτοκτονίες: Όλα όσα πρέπει να γνωρίζετε

Με αφορμή την Παγκόσμια Ημέρα Πρόληψης των Αυτοκτονιών στις 10 Σεπτεμβρίου, ο Παγκόσμιος Οργανισμός Υγείας έδωσε στη δημοσιότητα για πρώτη φορά σχετική έκθεση για τις αυτοκτονίες, ως μια προσπάθεια ευαισθητοποίησης για την κοινωνική πια σήμερα μάστιγα. O χάρτης δείχνει το ποσοστό αυτοκτονιών σε παγκόσμια κλίμακα και για τα δύο φύλα. Απώτερος, όσο και ιδανικός στόχος, του Π.Ο.Υ είναι η επίτευξη της μείωσης των αυτοκτονικών περιστατικών κατά 10% έως το 2020.

Η διάπραξη αυτοκτονίας η αλλιώς «δολοφονία του εαυτού» όπως αναφέρεται από τους ειδικούς δεν κάνει διακρίσεις. Η μάστιγα αυτή πλήττει όλες τις ηλικίες σε όλα τα μέρη του κόσμου. Το 2012 καταγράφηκαν περίπου 804.000 περιστατικά αυτοχειρίας σε παγκόσμιο επίπεδο με το μεγαλύτερο ποσοστό αυτών να αφορά χώρες χαμηλού και μεσαίου εισοδήματος, οι ελλιπείς πόροι και υπηρεσίες των οποίων, εάν και εφόσον υπάρχουν, παρεμποδίζουν την πρόληψη, τη θεραπεία και την υποστήριξη των ευπαθών ατόμων.

Οι άνδρες αυτοκτονούν 3 φορές περισσότερο από τις γυναίκες στα ανεπτυγμένα κράτη και συχνά επιλέγοντας βιαιότερες μεθόδους από αυτές όπως απαγχονισμός, πυροβολισμός με κυνηγητικό όπλο, πτώση από ύψος κ.α. Η συχνότερη μέθοδος απόπειρας στο γυναικείο φύλο είναι η υπερδοσολογία φαρμάκων. Όσον αφορά την ηλικία, τα ποσοστά αυτοκτονιών είναι χαμηλότερα σε άτομα ηλικίας κάτω των 15 ετών και υψηλότερα σε άτομα ηλικίας 70 ετών και άνω σε όλες σχεδόν τις περιοχές του κόσμου. Στις Ηνωμένες Πολιτείες η αυτοκτονία αποτελεί τη 2η αίτια θανάτου σε νέους ανθρώπους 15-29 ετών μετά τα τροχαία ατυχήματα, ενώ στην Νοτιοανατολική Ασία αντιπροσωπεύει την κύρια αιτία (17.6% για χώρες υψηλού εισοδήματος και 16.6% για χώρες μικρομεσαίου εισοδήματος).

Η περίπτωση της Ελλάδας
Σύμφωνα με στατιστικά δεδομένα της Ελληνικής Στατιστικής Αρχής και της μη κυβερνητικής οργάνωσης «Κλίμακα», το 2012 καταγράφηκαν 508 περιστατικά αυτοκτονίας στη χώρα μας, ενώ στο διάστημα 2007-2011 το ποσοστό αυτοκτονιών αυξήθηκε κατά 43% (Σχήμα 2). Για πρώτη φορά το 2012 η Ελλάδα ξεπερνάει το 5% των αυτοκτονιών, αριθμό που έχουν χώρες όπως η Βραζιλία ή κάποιες Ασιατικές. Δεδομένου ότι το 45,27% των θυμάτων αφορούσε οικονομικά ανενεργά άτομα, θα μπορούσε κάποιος να αναρωτηθεί: Άραγε η οικονομική ύφεση επηρεάζει τα ποσοστά αυτοκτονιών μιας χώρας; Το διεθνές περιοδικό Κοινωνικής Ψυχιατρικής ανατρέχοντας σε έρευνες που έχουν διεξαχθεί σε περιόδους οικονομικής δυσπραγίας, από την Μεγάλη Ύφεση του 1929 έως την κρίση του 2008, απεφάνθη πως η αύξηση της ανεργίας σαν επακόλουθο της πτώσης του Ακαθάριστου Εγχώριου Προϊόντος, συνδέεται με άνοδο των αυτοκτονιών στην Ελλάδα αλλά και διεθνώς.

Το προφίλ του αυτόχειρα
Η απόπειρα αυτοκτονίας τις περισσότερες φορές αποτελεί εκδήλωση μιας γενικότερης διαταραχής και όχι παρορμητική ενέργεια. Έτσι μπορούμε να διακρίνουμε ορισμένα κοινά χαρακτηριστικά μεταξύ των ατόμων που οδηγούνται σε αυτή. Πρόκειται για ανθρώπους που παρουσιάζουν εμμονή και συνεχή ενασχόληση με το θάνατο, είναι απομονωμένοι, έχουν λίγους ή καθόλου φίλους, η οικογενειακή επαφή και στήριξη είναι απούσες, έχουν αποσυρθεί από κοινωνικές δραστηριότητες, εμφανίζουν διάσπαση προσοχής, έλλειψη χιούμορ, ανηδονία, προσήλωση σε δυσάρεστα γεγονότα του παρελθόντος. Δεν έχουν καμία προσδοκία για το μέλλον, είναι απελπισμένοι, παραμελημένοι ως προς την εμφάνιση και την υγιεινή τους, δείχνουν να έχουν χάσει το νόημα της ζωής.

Ποιοι είναι οι μύθοι και οι αλήθειες σχετικά με την αυτοκτονία;
Μύθος 1ος: «Οι άνθρωποι που λένε ότι θα αυτοκτονήσουν ποτέ δεν το κάνουν!»
Όταν κάποιος εκφράζει την επιθυμία του να αυτοκτονήσει, δεν είναι απαραίτητα τρόπος να προσελκύσει την προσοχή των άλλων. Χρέος μας είναι να τον αντιμετωπίσουμε με σοβαρότητα και να αναζητήσουμε τη βοήθεια ενός ειδικού.

Μύθος 2ος:»Μιλώντας σε κάποιον για την αυτοκτονία, του δίνουμε την ιδέα να αυτοκτονήσει!»
Δεν υπάρχει περίπτωση να ωθήσουμε κάποιον στην αυτοκτονία απλά και μόνο ρωτώντας τον αν σκοπεύει να βλάψει τον εαυτό του. Αντίθετα, μάλιστα, με την κατάλληλη προσέγγιση, με προσοχή και ευαισθησία, ίσως τον ωθήσουμε να εκφράσει τα συναισθήματα και τις σκέψεις του. Μύθος 3ος:»Οι άνθρωποι που αυτοκτονούν θέλουν πραγματικά να πεθάνουν».
Οι άνθρωποι που αυτοκτονούν νιώθουν εγκλωβισμένοι σε ένα αδιέξοδο και ο θάνατος παίρνει τη μορφή λύτρωσης. Ωστόσο, τις περισσότερες φορές έχουν αμφιθυμικά συναισθήματα για την αυτοκτονία. Η επιθυμία για θάνατο εναλλάσσεται με την επιθυμία για τη ζωή! Μύθος 4ος:»Τα παιδιά δεν αυτοκτονούν!»

Τα παιδιά και οι έφηβοι πάσχουν σήμερα όλο και περισσότερο από κατάθλιψη, εκδηλώνοντας παράλληλα αυτοκτονικές τάσεις.

Η αντιμετώπιση από το σύστημα Υγείας των ανθρώπων που έχουν αποπειραθεί να αυτοκτονήσουν στοχεύει σε δύο άξονες: Πρώτον, είναι μείζονος σημασίας η άμεση εξασφάλιση ενός ασφαλούς περιβάλλοντος για τον ασθενή. Σκόπιμο είναι να μη μείνει το άτομο μόνο του, να μην έχει πρόσβαση σε αντικείμενα που μπορούν να χρησιμοποιηθούν σαν όπλα για να βλάψει τον εαυτό του και τέλος, να ληφθεί σοβαρά υπόψη το ενδεχόμενο νοσηλείας και οι συνθήκες αυτής. Δεύτερον, η σωστή διαγνωστική και θεραπευτική προσέγγιση μπορούν να αποτρέψουν δεύτερη απόπειρα. Η διάγνωση απαιτεί ένα πλήρες ψυχιατρικό ιστορικό, καθώς και εξέταση της νοητικής κατάστασης του ασθενούς, ενώ η θεραπεία συνίσταται σε φαρμακευτική αγωγή και ψυχοθεραπεία.

Ωστόσο, ούτε η κατάλληλη φαρμακευτική αγωγή ούτε ένας ειδήμων γιατρός είναι ικανά να γιατρέψουν την ψυχή ενός ανθρώπου! Η φιλία, η οικογένεια, το ενδιαφέρον, η στήριξη, μπορούν να αποδειχθούν το πιο θαυματουργό φάρμακο! Και αν όλοι είμαστε σε επαγρύπνηση μπροστά σε τέτοια φαινόμενα, πού ξέρεις.. Ίσως αύριο εσύ να δώσεις το «φιλί της ζωής» και να σώσεις με τον πιο απλό τρόπο κάποιον που το χρειάζεται.

Chennai, Tamil Nadu


RPF, NGO Join Hands to Stop Suicides - The New Indian Express

CHENNAI: As part of their action plan to bring down train-run over deaths in the suburban train network, the Madras division of Southern Railways has tied-up with Sneha, the Chennai based NGO which runs a suicide prevention helpline.

According to railway estimates, around 15-20 percent of deaths on railway tracks in the Chennai division are actually people committing suicides. “It’s an easy way out for many frustrated youngsters. They just stand in front of a fast EMU train which takes their life in a fraction of a second,” said a railway official.

As part of the tie-up, Sneha as well as their helpline will feature prominently on the division’s promotional material which will be put up across the suburban stations. The NGO has also been requested by the railways to conduct training and sensitisation sessions for Railway Protection Force (RPF) personnel on identification and counselling of persons who might be on the verge of committing suicide.

In the run-up to the World Suicide Prevention day on September 10, a number of joint awareness campaigns have been planned. Special announcements regarding the campaign will be made at Chennai Central and Egmore stations. Videos about the campaign with the helpline numbers will also be beamed at the giant screens at these terminal stations.

Founder of Sneha, Lakshmi Vijaykumar said that such suicides on train tracks had been an issue that had not yet been discussed extensively. In this collaborative effort, 15 stations and vulnerable locations where people jumped in front of trains had been identified for aggressive campaigns, she said.

------------

A presentation and discussion evening will be held in the Talbot Hotel, Wexford, Ireland in honour of World Suicide Prevention Day on Thursday, September 10th at 7.30pm. The event is being instigated by Wexford authors, Tony Walsh and Lucy Costigan, whose recent book, ‘Understanding Suicide: Exposing the World of Pain within the Suicide Box' (Currach Press, June 2015) highlights the need for a new perspective on suicide and a blueprint for positive change.

Since County Wexford has consistently had one of the highest suicide rates in the country, the organisers plan an evening where a different approach to suicide, self-harm and mental health issues will spark much discussion and offer insights of hope. It is hoped that together we can explore new ways to stem the tide of self-harm and suicide in County Wexford.

Speakers for the evening include Dr Fergus Heffernan Ph.D, Rose Tully, Educator, George Lawlor of Wexford Marine Watch, and Ray Cullen of Talk to Tom in Gorey. Tony Walsh has worked with many vulnerable groups and individuals and for many years as Project Manager and Coordinator with Living Links, an outreach organisation that deals with families and friends bereaved by suicide. Tony will be presenting the New Perspective on suicide that is offered in his recent book. Local businesses who have sponsored the event are The Talbot Hotel, Pettitts Supervalu, Impression Print and Irishimages.org

The event is free and is open to all. For further information please contact Tony Walsh on 0871232855 or access our website.

Ar sociālo kampaņu „Nenovērsies!” turpinās pievērst uzmanību psihiskās veselības jautājumiem

Lai mazinātu sabiedrībā pastāvošos aizspriedumus par psihiskiem traucējumiem un cilvēkiem, kuri ar šiem traucējumiem slimo, Veselības ministrija (VM) un Slimību profilakses un kontroles centrs (SPKC) turpina pērn īstenoto sociālo kampaņu „Nenovērsies!”. Kampaņa tiks uzsākta 10. septembrī, kad pasaulē tiek atzīmēta Starptautiskā pašnāvību novēršanas diena. Šīs dienas tēma šogad ir “Novērst pašnāvību: pamanīt, palīdzēt un izglābt dzīvības!”.

Kampaņas mērķis ir pievērst iedzīvotāju uzmanību savai un līdzcilvēku psihiskajai veselībai, motivēt vērsties pēc specializētas palīdzības un mazināt aizspriedumus pret cilvēkiem, kuri ar šiem traucējumiem slimo.

Kampaņas "Nenovērsies" atklāšanas preses konference notiks 10. septembrī plkst. 11.00 "Tehnoannas pagrabu" pagrabstāvā (A. Briāna iela 8, Rīga).

Preses konferencē piedalīsies:

Preses konferences laikā mediju pārstāvjiem būs iespēja arī iziet cauri tumšajam labirintam, kas simbolizē emocionālo stāvokli, ko izjūt cilvēks psihoemocionālu problēmu gadījumā – sajūta, ka tausties tumsā un samilzušajai problēmai nav ne gala, ne malas. Cilvēks bieži jūtas viens, izolēts un citu nesaprasts. Arī preses konferences norises vieta – pagrabs – ir izvēlēta ar mērķi klātesošajiem radīt asociācijas ar sajūtām, kādas var piedzīvot bez atbalsta palicis cilvēks psihiskas saslimšanas laikā.

R. Šalaševičiūtė: tik bendradarbiaujant bus pasiektas proveržis savižudybių prevencijos srityje

R. Šalaševičiūtė: tik bendradarbiaujant bus pasiektas proveržis savižudybių prevencijos srityjeSavižudybių dažnis Lietuvoje palaipsniui mažėja. Jei 2000-2003 per metus nusižudydavo apie 1600 žmonių, tai 2014 m. savo valia iš gyvenimo pasitraukė 930 žmonių. Tokius duomenis sveikatos apsaugos ministrė Rimantė Šalaševičiūtė pateikė ministerijoje vykusiame susitikime su Nevyriausybinių organizacijų ir ekspertų koalicijos „Psichikos sveikata 2020“ atstovais. Pasitarime aptarta Psichikos sveikatos strategijos ir savižudybių prevencijos veiksmų plano rengimo eiga, bendradarbiavimo su nevyriausybinėmis organizacijomis stiprinimo klausimai.

Per pastaruosius 11 metų savižudybių dažnis Lietuvoje sumažėjo 40 proc. – tai vienas iš didžiausių sumažėjimų Europoje. Tačiau, pasak ministrės R. Šalaševičiūtės, savižudybių skaičius vis dar išlieka labai aukštas.

„Todėl mes turime konsoliduoti visų sveikatos politikų, specialistų, nevyriausybinių organizacijų pastangas, kad Lietuva pagal savižudybių skaičių nepirmautų tarp ES valstybių. Dėkoju visiems atsiliepusiems į ministerijos kvietimą bendrai aptarti šiuos aktualius klausimus ir tikiuosi, kad bendradarbiaudami, o ne žarstydamiesi kaltinimais mes pasieksime proveržio savižudybių prevencijos srityje“, – sakė R. Šalaševičiūtė.

Savižudybę sąlygojantys veiksniai yra labai įvairūs – socialiniai ekonominiai, asmeninio gyvenimo dramos, skyrybos, smurtas šeimoje, patyčios, agresyvumas, netolerantiškumas, abejingumas, besaikis alkoholio vartojimas ir pan.

„Akivaizdu, kad savižudybės yra ne vien medicininė problema. Kad savižudybių prevencija būtų efektyvi, problemą būtina suvokti kur kas platesniame kontekste, nei pagalbos ketinantiems ar bandžiusiems nusižudyti teikimas. Todėl šioje srityje būtina ne tik gerinti psichologinės pagalbos prieinamumą, bet ir socialinę žmonių padėtį, siekti alkoholio vartojimo mažėjimo, mokyklose vykdyti patyčių prevencijos programas bei užkirsti kelią smurtui artimoje aplinkoje“, – sakė R. Šalaševičiūtė.

Todėl, pasak ministrės, labai svarbu, kad į prevencinių priemonių įgyvendinimą įsitrauktų ne tik sveikatos priežiūros institucijos, bet ir Socialinės apsaugos ir darbo, Švietimo ir mokslo ministerijos. Ministrė pripažino, jog lig šiol ankstesnės Vyriausybės neskyrė reikiamo dėmesio tarpinstituciniam bendradarbiavimui bei veiksmų koordinavimui.

Siekiant savižudybių prevenciją padaryti kuo efektyvesne bei pradėti tam būtiną tarpinstitucinį bendradarbiavimą, dabartinė SAM vadovybė rado galimybę finansuoti Savižudybių prevencijos biurą, kuris veiklą pradėjo nuo 2015 m. pradžios. Pagrindinės šio biuro veiklos kryptys yra rinkti ir analizuoti informaciją, susijusią su savižudybių statistika, prevencija bei postvencija Lietuvos ir tarptautiniu mastu bei realiai bendradarbiauti su kitomis institucijomis ir žinybomis, siekiant aktyviai koordinuoti tarpusavio veiksmus savižudybių prevencijos bei pagalbos bandžiusiems nusižudyti asmenims ir jų šeimoms srityje.

Ministrė R. Šalaševičiūtė susitikime pabrėžė, kad vaikų psichikos sveikata yra vienas iš pagrindinių prioritetų psichikos sveikatos priežiūroje. Plėtojant kompleksines vaikų ir paauglių psichikos sveikatos priežiūros paslaugas Lietuvoje įsteigti 5 regioniniai diferencijuotos kompleksinės psichiatrinės pagalbos vaikui ir šeimai centrai. Įtvirtinti šiuolaikiniai veiksmingos vaikų ir paauglių psichikos sveikatos stiprinimo, vaikų ir paauglių psichikos sutrikimų prevencijos, vaikų raidos ir psichikos sutrikimų diagnostikos, gydymo ir reabilitacijos sistemos kūrimo Lietuvoje principai ir reikalavimai. Yra sudarytas integruotos vaikų ir paauglių psichikos sveikatos priežiūros valdymo komitetas. 2014 metais patvirtintas Vaikų sveikatos stiprinimo, ligų profilaktikos ir efektyvaus gydymo užtikrinimo srities aprašas. Jame numatytos kompleksinės priemonės iki 2023 metų, sukursiančios vaikams palankią, kokybišką bei veiksmingą sveikatos priežiūrą, sumažinant regioninius vaikų sveikatos ir jos priežiūros prieinamumo bei kokybės netolygumus. Be to, Vaikų hiperkinezinių sutrikimų ambulatoriniam gydymui skiriami kompensuojamieji vaistai, o patvirtintas Vaiko raidos tikrinimo aprašas padės specialistams atpažinti, įvertinti ankstyvą vaiko raidos sutrikimų riziką bei organizuoti pagalbą.

Susitikime R. Šalaševičiūtė taip pat pateikė informaciją apie Vaiko raidos centro patalpas. Ministrė apgailestavo, kad Vaiko raidos centras atsisakė siūlymo kurtis „Pušyno kelio“ sanatorijoje. Todėl, nuspręsta Vaiko raidos centrui pagal poreikius atnaujinti Vaikų ligoninės Santariškėse tris ar keturis aukštus. Šiems darbams skiriama 3,5 mln. eurų. Tačiau rekonstrukcijos darbai prasidės tuomet, kai vaikų ligoninė išsikels į Santariškėse statomas naujas patalpas.

Susitikimo dalyviai taip pat buvo supažindinti su Psichikos sveikatos strategijos įgyvendinimo ir savižudybių prevencijos veiksmų plano pakeitimo projekto rengimo bei naujos redakcijos Psichikos sveikatos priežiūros įstatymo rengimo eiga, ES struktūrinių fondų paramos galimybėmis psichikos sveikatos paslaugų plėtrai.

Една обична приказна за човек кој работел во организација за превенција за самоубиства, успеа да промени и спаси илјадници животи и да отвори целосно нов поглед за депресијата и суицидните мисли.

На сајтот Tambler, на одделот наменет за закрепнување на суицидните личности, неодамна се појави пост кој ги расплака сите оние кои го видоа.

„Додека работев во непрофитна организација за превенција од самоубиства, имав пристап и податоци до донациите. Еден човек секој месец во исто време донирал 15 долари. Тоа го правел цели 4 години. Секогаш ми делуваше чудно, но не размислував премногу за тоа се додека еден месец покрај донацијата не видов и порака именувана како „За Ноу од тато“.

Неговата донација имено била џепарлак за неговиот син кој извршил самоубиство.

Момчето кое го прикачило оригиналниот текст и кој ја раскажал оваа приказна го заклучил следното- „Ви се колнам, сите околу вас ќе ви недостигаат до крајот на животот, и да, греши секој кој мисли дека е подобро да е мртов.

Psiquiatra habló de cómo ser un aliado en la prevención del suicidio

Paraguay - Los medios de comunicación pueden convertirse en un valioso aliado en la prevención del suicidio, si enfocan correctamente la noticia sobre el tema y cumplen las sugerencias de los suicidólogos sobre cómo difundirlas, así sostiene el fundador de la Sección de Suicidiología de la Asociación Mundial de Psiquiatría, Prof. Dr. Sergio Pérez Barrero. En esta nota, algunas pautas de cómo presentar las noticias.

El doctor Sergio Pérez Barrero, quien también es presidente de la Sección de Suicidiología de la Sociedad Cubana de Psiquiatría, vino al país a dictar unas conferencias organizadas por la Asociación Paraguaya de Psiquiatras, en el Salón FIFA del Hotel Bourbón, ubicado en Luque. Primero dio datos históricos y bíblicos, sobre grandes personalidades que tomaron tan drástica determinación y cuyos actos fueron imitados, desencadenando varias muertes en consecuencia.

Dijo que la publicación de manera sensacionalista sobre el suicidio de una personalidad pública puede precipitar el suicidio de personas vulnerables, sobre todo adolescentes y jóvenes. Es por ello que cree importante que los medios de comunicación cumplan con algunas indicaciones al momento de dar una noticia referente a un suicidio, que no debe confundirse con poner un límite a la libertad de expresión, sino de hacerlo con responsabilidad social.

Basado en estudios científicos y estadísticos recomendó que al momento de dar la noticia es mejor reemplazar la palabra suicidio por sinónimos como muerte violenta, autoprovocada o autoinfligida, y tampoco debe aparecer la palabra suicidio como sinónimo de salida, opción o solución a una situación difícil por la que atravesaba la persona. A la vez se deben dar ejemplos de otras personas que en situaciones similares e incluso en peores circunstancias supieron encontrar soluciones no autodestructivas.

Recomendó que la noticia no aparezca en primera página ni en la última, porque por lo general el lector se concentra en dichas páginas. Pidió no publicar la foto de la persona que puso fin a su vida, por respeto a los familiares así como para evitar que entren también en una crisis suicida.

Tampoco se deben publicar fotos de la escena ni el método utilizado con lujo de detalles, ya que puede dar ideas a otros que a lo mejor pensaron un día en desaparecerse. También señaló que es común publicar que una persona se mató porque le dejó la novia o el novio, lo cual es una explicación simplista, ya que detalló que el suicidio es un proceso, y el motivo que induce “es la paja que rompe la columna vertebral del camello, que viene cargado”, es como solemos decir en Paraguay, la gota que colmó el vaso.

Insistió en que no deben ofrecerse explicaciones simplistas ni únicas de lo sucedido, pues el suicidio es una conducta compleja que responde a causas biológicas, psicológicas y sociales. El profesor doctor manifestó que no debe equipararse el suicidio con atributos valiosos del carácter como que lo hizo por valentía, por amor, honor, sentimiento solidario, etc.

Mencionó que no deben describirse solamente los aspectos positivos de la personalidad del fallecido, sino también los posibles factores que facilitaron el suicidio como el padecimiento de una enfermedad mental, el abuso de drogas y alcohol, los intentos suicidas previos, ingresos psiquiátricos. Asimismo, falta de apoyo familiar y social, etc.

Agradecemos a Antonia Delvalle Castillo

¿Cómo reconocer a un potencial suicida?

LAS PALABRAS CORRECTAS

El terapeuta familiar y sistémico Ricarte Cortez explicó que un intento de suicidio es un ´pedido de ayuda´ y busca llamar la atención. Se debe dar tranquilidad, no juzgar al potencial suicida y hacerle saber que otros se preocupan por él, señaló el especialista. Por el contrario, advirtió, puede ser contraproducente decir cosas cono ´hay gente peor que tú´ o ´no es para tanto´

Especialista explicó la forma más acertada en que se debe manejar una situación tan delicada como un intento de suicidio.

La depresión es un trastorno mental frecuente que afecta a más de 350 millones de personas en el mundo, según cifras de la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS). Pero esta condición no es la única que puede llevar a pensamientos suicidas.

Aunque hay tratamientos eficaces para la depresión, hay signos de alerta como el aislamiento, cambios de actitud, pérdida de interés por las cosas convencionales o problemas de sueño, que de no ser atendidos a tiempo, pueden acabar con la autoeliminación de la persona enferma.

A nivel local, los potenciales suicidas engrosan los casos de salud mental, pero hay otros como la bipolaridad o la esquizofrenia que también puede tener consecuencias fatales, señaló el terapeuta familiar y sistémico Ricarte Cortez.

"Hay una pérdida de todos los mecanismos de control, y la depresión en sí misma lleva a una persona a tener el factor suicida, algunos lo intentan y otros no", aseveró en diálogo con RPP Noticias te Cuida.

El especialista explicó la forma más acertada en que se debe manejar una situación tan delicada como un intento de suicidio.

En primer término Ricarte Cortez apuntó que una persona entrenada debe ser la que intervenga en este tipo de casos, por ejemplo, los bomberos o el personal de salud.

En nuestra galería de fotos recogemos la explicación profesional de cuál es la forma correcta de manejar este tipo de crisis.

Deadly silver cleaner bawal na ibenta sa QC

IInaprubahan ng Quezon City Council ang pagbabawal sa pagbebenta ng mga silver jewelry cleaner na may halong cyanide at iba pang mapanganib na sangkap.
Agad namang pinuri ng EcoWaste Coalition, isang environmental group, ang hakbang ng Quezon City na una umanong lungsod na nakapagpasa ng naturang ordinansa.
“The ordinance will help in preventing cyanide poisoning from the accidental and deliberate intake of this deadly potion that has killed so many people, including young children who mistook it for water and adults who drank it on purpose,” ani Thony Dizon, coordinator ng EcoWaste.
Ang silver cleaner ay isa sa mga pangunahing kemikal na ginagamit sa pagpapakamatay sa bansa. Ika-6 ito sa 10 kemikal na nakalason sa mga isinugod sa Philippine General Hospital noong 2014.
Sa Setyembre 9-13 ay ipagdiriwang ang National Suicide Prevention Week at sa Setyembre 10 ang World Suicide Prevention Day.
Noong Martes inaprubahan ng City Council ang Ordinance CC19-311 na akda ni Councilor Dorothy Delarmente.
Sa ilalim ng ordinansa, ang magbebenta ng ipinagbabawal na silver cleaner ay magmumulta ng hindi bababa sa P5,000 at kulong na isa hanggang tatlong buwan.
Kung rehistrado ang negosyo na nahuling nagbenta nito, kakanselahin ang kanyang business permit sa siyudad.

Samobójstwa wśród młodych

W statystykach policyjnych nie znajdziemy odpowiedzi na pytanie, co skłoniło młodego człowieka do odebrania sobie życia.

Prof. Brunon Hołyst, znawca problematyki samobójstw, mówi, że zwątpienie w sens własnego życia, niskie poczucie własnej wartości prowadzą do uświadomienia sobie pustki egzystencjalnej, do poczucia bezsensu istnienia.

Tylko jak to odnieść do 9-latka, do dziewczyny, która ma 15 lat, do 18-letniego chłopaka? Przecież ich doświadczenie życiowe jest jeszcze tak skromne. Czego zdążyli się już dowiedzieć o życiu, że uznali je za bezwartościowe? Trzeba wyraźnie powiedzieć: to nie jest tylko ich problem, to nie jest problem tylko ich rodziny. To problem nasz, społeczeństwa. To nie może być temat tabu, bo taka postawa nie służy refleksji nad tym, dlaczego tak dużo młodych ludzi w Polsce popełnia samobójstwa… (ak/as)

SUICIDE PREVENTION DAY SEMINAR HELD
SPEAKES at a seminar jointly organized by Media Plus and Neeraj Foundation in connection with the World Suicide Prevention Day has called up on the community to work together to build healthy communities with strong social fabric and fraternity. The theme of this year’s World Suicide Prevention Day ‘ Preventing Suicide : reaching out and saving life ’ was highly relevant as the world we live in is suffering due to isolation, nuclear families and selfish set ups, speakers observed.

The theme reflects the fact that connections are important at several levels if we are to combat suicide – at an individual level, cross support services, and cross country/countries. The seminar observed that nearly all suicides are preventable. This World Suicide Prevention Day, take the time to learn about suicide and think about how we can help someone connect to the support services they need and influence our connections to get involved in suicide prevention initiatives.

Inaugurating the seminar ICC president Gireesh Kumar observed that technological advancements and modern living conditions have made men in to different compartments where their emotional integrity and sociability are ignored. Isolation, lack of interactions and absence of adequate social activities intensify the mental stress and it leads to depression, suicide, and addiction to alcoholism and a number of social calamities. If the society stand together to facilitate healthy social environment with close connection and sharing of feelings, it will make a big difference, the seminar pointed out.

Presenting the topic Raees Ahmed a trainer and research scholar highlighted that correct parenting is the best solution for almost all sociological and psychological issued faced by modern society. The so called busy schedule of life of modern man cause lots of mental stress and strain and combined efforts are required to overcome this burden. Greed for money, misuse of technological devices, consumption of addictive substance, lack of family bondage and the absence of strong moral values are some of the causes of spread of suicide. With unity and cooperation the society can check this social issue to a great extent. Money and power cant guarantee peace of mind, which is more valuable to any one. He urged the audience to obtain peace of mind with simplicity, compassion and selfless service.

The regional head of Clickon , Juraij Ithilot exhorted the audience to understand the social situation and to do everything possible to make our living happy and peaceful. A clear insight about the purpose of life and importance of religious believes are the fundamental stones of mental solace, he said.

Muhammed Saleem, manager of Al Hayki translations also spoke on the occasion.

The function started with lighting candle declaring solidarity with all those who are striving hard to prevent suicide and make the world brighter with good deeds and knowledge. Mediaplus CEO Amanulla Vadakkangara conducted the event. Marketing coordinator Abdul Fathah Nilambur proposed a vote of thanks.

Ziua Mondială de prevenire a suicidului 10 septembrie 2015 cu genericul „Prevenirea suicidului: Întinde o mână de ajutor ca să salvezi vieți”

Inițial, inițiativa Asociației Internaționale pentru Prevenirea Suicidului (IASP) și Organizației Mondiale a Sănătății (OMS) de a marca Ziua Mondială de prevenire a suicidului a fost susținută doar de câteva țări,

ZMPS
însă începând cu anul 2003, Ziua Mondială de prevenire a Suicidului este marcată de acum la scară globală, anual pe 10 septembrie. În anul curent evenimentul vine ca încurajare persoanelor fizice și organizațiilor implicate în acțiunea de prevenirea suicidului să ia în considerare rolul esențial de sprijin pe care ele sunt capabile să-l joace în combaterea acestui flagel.

Potrivit Organizației Mondiale a Sănătății anual în întreaga lume peste 800.000 de oameni mor în urma actelor de sinucidere, numărul tentativelor suicidale fiind mult mai mare. Statistic ar reieși aproximativ un fapt de suicid la fiecare 40 de secunde. Numărul de vieți pierdute în fiecare an din cauza sinuciderii, depășește numărul celor cauzate de omoruri și de războaie luate la un loc. Fiecare sinucidere este o tragedie care afectează familiile, comunitățile și țări întregi, și are efecte de lungă durată asupra oamenilor. Sinuciderea este un fenomen global, se manifestă în toate regiunile lumi, fiind una din principalele cauze de deces. Suicidul apare ca a doua cauză de deces în rândul tinerilor cu vârsta de 15-29 de ani și a cincea principală cauză de deces în rândul celor cu vârsta cuprinsă între 30-49 de ani.

În unele ţări în ultimii ani s-a înregistrat o creştere a acestui fenomen cu până la 60 %. La nivel mondial 75 % din sinucideri au avut loc în țările mici și cu venituri și resurse medii. Se estimează că în cursul anului 2012 la fiecare adult care și-a pus capăt zilelor au fost peste 20 de alte persoane cu tentative de suicid.

Suicidul este o problemă gravă de sănătate publică în Europa, având o rată medie de 13,9 cazuri la 100000 populație (Organizaţia Mondială a Sănătăţii, 2013). Suicidul afectează persoane de toate vârstele, din toate culturile şi grupurile de populaţie. Ratele de sinucidere ale persoanelor de gen masculin sunt mai mari decât cele ale persoanelor de gen feminin în toate ţările Uniunii Europene. Cele mai multe sinucideri apar în cadrul populaţiei cu vârsta cuprinsă între 35-44 de ani.

Impactul psihologic şi social al suicidului asupra familiei şi comunităţii este enorm, iar costurile economice asociate anual cu decesul sau leziunile autoprovocate ar fi, potrivit estimărilor, de ordinul miliardelor de dolari.

În Republica Moldova în anul 2014 au fost înregistrate 581 de cazuri de suicid, inclusiv populația în vârsta pensionară 117 cazuri, în 2013 – 576 cazuri, inclusiv populația în vârsta pensionară 98 de cazuri, pe când la copiii cu vârsta de până la 17 ani: 15 cazuri în 2014 și respectiv 13 cazuri în 2013.

Sloganul Zilei Mondiale pentru prevenirea suicidului 2015 este „Prevenirea suicidului: Întinde o mână de ajutor ca să salvezi vieți”, scopul principal în acest an este de a arăta grijă și preocupare pentru cineva care ar putea fi vulnerabil la sinucidere.

Mai mult de 90 % din toate cazurile de sinucidere sunt asociate cu tulburările mintale (în special depresia şi consecinţele cauzate de consumul de alcool şi de substanţe narcotice), care sunt un factor major de risc pentru suicid în Europa și America de Nord, iar în țările din Asia joacă un rol important și impulsivitatea. Suicidul este consecinţa unui complex de factori socio-culturali şi are un risc mai mare de apariţie în timpul perioadelor de criză socio-economică, familială sau individuală (de exemplu, pierderea unei persoane dragi, şomajul, divorţul, abandonurile, dezmembrarea familiei).

În plus, dacă persoanele se confruntă cu un conflict, dezastru, violență, abuz, deces al apropiaților sau pierderea lor și în caz de izolare, comportamentul lor se asociază adesea puternic cu elementul suicidal.

Rata sinuciderilor este sporită în rândul grupurilor vulnerabile, care se confruntă cu discriminarea, cum ar fi refugiații și emigranții, prizonierii.

Diferenţe de vârstă

Un comportament suicidal poate apărea la orice vârstă. Frecvenţa acestuia creşte brusc din copilărie, până la finalul adolescenţei şi începutul vârstei adulte. Rata suicidului este ridicată la adulţii de vârstă mijlocie sau peste, valorile cele mai ridicate înregistrându-se la persoanele de peste 75 de ani. Vârstnicii sunt mai predispuşi la intenţii suicidale şi utilizează metode mai letale decât tinerii; de asemenea, au şanse mai reduse de a supravieţui consecinţelor fizice ale unei tentative.

Diferenţe pe sexe

În medie, în aproape toate statele globului, rata suicidului pe sexe este de trei ori mai mare la bărbaţi decât la femei. Totodată, tentativele tind să fie de două-trei ori mai frecvente la femei, deşi diferenţele dintre sexe s-au redus în ultimii ani. Explicaţia disproporţiilor rezidă în utilizarea de către bărbaţi a unor metode cu letalitate mai mare, agresivitatea şi hotărârea mai accentuată a bărbaţilor de a-și pune capăt zilelor.

O creștere semnificativă a sinuciderilor se manifestă în rândul lesbienelor, gaylor, bisexualilor care se confruntă cu discriminare și izolarea de societate. Unul din cei mai puternici factori de risc pentru suicid este o tentativă de sinucidere anterioară.

Riscul de suicid

În timp ce legătura dintre tulburările psihice și de suicid (în special, depresie și consumul de alcool) este bine stabilită în țările cu venituri mari, multe suicide se întâmplă impulsiv în momentele de criză, cum ar fi probleme financiare sau suferind de dureri cronice sau în cazuri de boală gravă.

Aproximativ jumătate din cei cu idee suicidală au fost cândva diagnosticaţi cu o afecţiune psihică, iar până la 90 % din acei ce comit un suicid suferă de cel puţin o afecţiune psihică. Cel mai frecvent este vorba de depresii şi abuzul de substanţe, schizo­frenia sau tulburările de personalitate. Alcoolul şi consumul de stupefiante constituie factori importanţi în comiterea suicidului. Evenimentele stresante acţionează adesea ca factori declanșatori pentru persoanele cu dificultăţi de adaptare. Reacţii autoagresive pot apărea după conflicte în familie sau interpersonale, probleme judiciare, financiare sau la locul de muncă. Perioadele de criză economică şi şomaj determină o creştere importantă a ratei suicidului, prin vulnerabilitatea socială sporită. Reacţia de doliu este unul din principalele motive de suicid la persoanele vulnerabile. De asemenea, afecţiunile somatice grave, precum cancerul sau infecţia HIV, cresc riscul de suicid. Stresul și traumele copilăriei sunt un risc suicidal crescut în viaţa adultă.

Factori protectori

Dintre factorii psihologici, sunt capacitatea de a face faţă evenimentelor stresante de viaţă, încrederea în sine, autocontrolul şi comportamentul adaptiv. Factorii sociali şi culturali sunt reprezentaţi de integrarea socială şi religioasă, relaţiile bune cu prietenii, colegii şi vecinii, accesul la sprijin de specialitate şi la îngrijire medicală, dacă este necesar.

Un regim de viaţă sănătos, cu alimentaţie corectă, echilibrul somnului, activitatea fizică, abandonarea fumatului şi consumului de droguri se asociază cu un risc suicidal redus.

Metode de sinucidere

Se estimează că aproximativ 30 % din sinucideri la nivel mondial sunt cauzate de pesticide – auto-otrăvire, dintre care cele mai multe apar în zonele agricole rurale din țările cu venituri mici și medii. Alte metode comune de sinucidere sunt strangularea prin spânzurare și aplicarea armelor de foc.

Cunoașterea metodelor cel mai frecvent utilizate de sinucidere este importantă pentru elaborarea strategiilor eficiente de prevenire, cum ar fi restricționarea accesului la mijloacele de sinucidere.

Prevenirea și controlul suicidului

Suicidul poate fi prevenit prin direcționarea dezvoltării unor acţiuni, programe de prevenire şi a unor strategii naţionale de prevenire pentru a îmbunătăţi sănătatea mintală şi pentru a reduce numărul de decese prin sinucidere.

Există o serie de măsuri care pot fi luate atât în rândul populației, cât și la nivel individual, pentru a preveni sinuciderea și tentativele de suicid. Acestea includ:

Fenomenul suicidal în societate prezintă o problemă complexă și, prin urmare, eforturile de prevenire a sinuciderii necesită coordonarea și colaborarea intersectorială, inclusiv a sectorului sănătății și altor sectoare, cum ar fi cel al educației, muncii, agriculturii, de afaceri, justiției, de drept, apărare, politică și mass-media. Aceste eforturi trebuie să fie cuprinzătoare și integrate ca o abordare unică, care să genereze un impact pozitiv asupra unei probleme atât de complexe, precum este suicidul.

10 сентября - Всемирный день предотвращения самоубийств

Суицидальное поведение является сложной философской, этической, социальной и медицинской проблемой. Ежегодно в мире совершается около 1 млн. самоубийств и примерно в 10 раз больше суицидальных попыток. Самоубийство, как смерти причина, занимает второе место после ДТП в возрастном диапазоне 15-35 лет в Европе. Среднемировой уровень суицидов составляет около 14-16 населения в год на 100000. В Республике Беларусь в 2008 г. этот показатель составил 27.5 / 100,000. В абсолютных цифрах это обозначает, что более 2600 человек в Беларуси умерли в результате самоубийства в указанном году, что значительно превысило число погибших в ДТП (1954 человек) за тот же период. В 2012 году этот показатель снизился и составил 20.5 / 100,000 (N = 1944).

Предупреждение самоубийств представляет собой весьма непростую, но выполнимую комплексную задачу, решение которой возможно при взаимодействии различных структур общества (социальный сектор, государственные органы, учреждения образования, охраны правопорядка, здравоохранения, религиозные организации), так как причины этого явления весьма многообразны. Большое значение придаётся характеру освещения как проблемы суицида в целом, так и конкретных случаев суицидальных актов в средствах массовой информации и художественных произведениях. Специалисты средств массовой информации (СМИ) могут внести большой вклад в увеличения уровня осознания проблемы обществом и формирование реалистичных, не искажённых предрассудками представлений о самоубийстве.

ФАКТОРЫ РИСКА СУИЦИДАЛЬНОГО ПОВЕДЕНИЯ

К суицидальному поведению принято относить самоубийство (суицид) суицидальные попытки (парасуициды) мысли и высказывания о самоубийстве. Причины суицидального поведения многообразны. Их невозможно свести только к психическому расстройству, соматическому заболеванию или тяжёлой жизненной ситуации, которую переживает человек. Однако, в многочисленных исследованиях выявлены факторы, которые увеличивают риск суицидов и суицидальных попыток. Их наличие не обозначает обязательного "вердикта" суицида, но их сочетание увеличивает его риск.

Большое значение принадлежит социально-психологическим факторам: нарушенные детско-родительские и партнёрские отношения, одиночество и другие.

Тяжёлые кризисы: смерть близких, развод, финансовые потери, уголовная ответственность, потеря работы, значительное снижение социального статуса, тяжёлые конфликты и другие кризисы могут также стать пусковыми факторами СП.

Психические расстройства также являются серьёзным фактором риска суицида. Результаты исследований ВОЗ демонстрируют, что во многих случаях состояние человека на момент смерти в результате суицида соответствует диагнозу какого-либо психического расстройства. Самые частые среди них - расстройства настроения (депрессия) зависимость от психоактивных веществ (алкоголизм и наркомания) расстройства личности и другие. Так, депрессия предшествует суицидов 45-70%; зависимостью от алкоголя страдает 10-22% умирающих в результате суицида. Почти в половине случаев имеет место сочетание нескольких из этих расстройств. Наиболее частой является комбинация зависимости от алкоголя или наркотиков и депрессии. К сожалению, большинство тех из, кто умирает от своих рук, не обращаются при жизни за помощью психолога, психиатра или психотерапевта. Можно предположить, что это связано с рядом причин. Во-первых, те состояния, которые специалисты считают психическими расстройствами, часто не расцениваются в обществе как "болезнь" а воспринимаются либо как вариант нормы, либо как проявления "слабости характера." Так, депрессия может рассматриваться индивидом и его близкими, как проявление "слабодушия", "лени» и пр. Зависимость от алкоголя часто скрывается или оправдывается культуральными нормами употребления алкоголя. Расстройства личности могут восприниматься только как "дурной характер» или «невоспитанность". Наиболее "узнаваемыми» и расцениваемыми как психическая патология даже неспециалистами, являются психозы с ярким бредом и галлюцинациями, эпизоды явно нарушенного поведения, которые часто свойственны шизофрении. И хотя риск суицида при этом расстройстве является высоким, большинство самоубийств, как было сказано выше, совершают люди со значительно более "привычными" формами поведения. Во-вторых, психиатрия и, в меньшей степени, психотерапия являются в сознании многих людей достаточно стигматизированными отраслями медицинской помощи. В связи с этим, своевременному обращению к специалисту могут мешать опасения социального остракизма, стыд, страх предвзятого отношения родственников, друзей и коллег по работе.

Группу повышенного суицидального риска составляют также больные тяжёлыми хроническими соматическими (физическими) заболеваниями. Например, онкологические заболевания, ВИЧ-инфекция, потеря органа или телесной функции приносят массу страданий и социальных ограничений и поэтому часто сочетаются с депрессией.

Имеет значение также ряд демографических характеристик. Уровень суицидов у мужчин в 3-6 раз выше, чем у женщин. Частота суицидальных попыток, наоборот, выше примерно в 1.5 среди раза женщин.

Уровень суицидов в населении увеличивается с возрастом, и достигает максимума после 45-50 лет. Максимум суицидальных попыток приходится на молодой возраст - 20-29 лет. Однако, это не снижает актуальности проблемы суицидов молодёжи, т.к. из года в год отмечается увеличение уровней суицидов в этой подгруппе населения.

World Suicide Prevention Day on 10th September 2015

Samaritans of Singapore (SOS) is organising a week-long campaign to involve the community in suicide prevention by encouraging the public to ask their loved ones how they are and to be there for one another. We hope to fight the stigma of suicide in an innovative and interactive way.

About Suicide in Singapore
On the average, 1 person dies by suicide every day in Singapore. For every suicide death, there are 10–15 people who attempt it. In 2014, 415 suicide deaths occurred in Singapore. Each life lost through suicide is tragic because suicide is often preventable. The impact of suicide is manifold as the lives of family and friends left behind by a suicide death are forever changed by trauma and grief.

#howru Campaign
Very often, what people in crisis need is to talk to someone. Unfortunately, starting the conversation can be difficult. We have heard real stories of people who were going to end their lives but changed their mind after someone asked them “How are you?” Our campaign hence hopes to encourage the public to talk to one another, to start the conversation by asking #howru. Band-aids will be distributed to the public and they are encourage to wear it on their inner wrist on which is written #howru, and share the picture with the public through social media on 10th September 2015.

Professional workshops
From 3rd September to 18th September, SOS will be conducting professional workshops on suicide prevention, intervention and postvention to equip the participants with knowledge and skills that can be applied in their respective areas of work and personal lives.

For Information on this campaign or workshops, please visit us at www.sos.org.sg

World Suicide Prevention Day 2015

10 September

World Suicide Prevention Day is commemorated on 10 September to promote worldwide commitment and action to prevent suicides. On average, almost 3 000 people commit suicide daily. For every person who completes a suicide, 20 or more may attempt to end their lives.

About one million people commit suicide each year. Every 40 seconds, the loss of a person who killed themselves shatters the lives of family and friends.

For family and friends affected by suicide or attempted suicide, the emotional impact can last for many years.

Prevención del Suicidio - España, 2015

II Semana de Prevención del Suicidio - España, 2015

A cada año se nota que mucho más gente habla de tema, dejando de lado el tabú, visando ayudar y esclarecer a todos los seres humanos la importancia de amar la vida presente y presérvala a toda costa. Todavía estamos en una fase de pruebas en este planeta, todavía sufrimos con nuestras propias imperfecciones, todavía tenemos mucho para aprender, pero no significa que debamos aprender con dolor. Tenemos la capacidad de aprender con el amor, como Jesús mismo nos enseñó, no es difícil pero SOMOS capaces de hacerlo.

Muchos nos preguntan porque elegimos luchar por la prevención del suicidio, y la respuesta es bastante sencilla, porque hay que empezar por algo, y fue el tema que nos eligió y no nosotros. Todavía estamos limitados por la materia y por el tiempo desde que volvemos al cuerpo de carne, por lo que aprenderemos un tema a la vez, y elegimos aprender con el amor a la vida y apoyar todas las personas y asociaciones que amen la vida de cada ser humano, que ampare en su dolor de existencia, que pueda visionar la vida más allá de la vida, que hoy es diario de aprendizaje para mañana.

Colombo Sri lanka World Suicide Prevention Day

A Sri Lanka Sumithrayo volunteer reflects on the organization’s role in preventing suicide and spreading awareness

News reports on suicide incidents aren’t rare when heard and a nation gives them priority because they have a profound impact on the society, starting from the person who commits the act, his family and friends, classmates and co-workers. A volunteer at Sri Lanka Sumithrayo, who wished to remain anonymous, and works towards suicide prevention told The Nation that responsibility of preventing suicide falls on each and every individual in the society. “Everyone has a role to play in suicide prevention. Everyone can support this by simply having an empathetic ear,” the volunteer said.

Causes
According to the recently released World Health Organization (WHO) report ‘Preventing Suicide: A Global Imperative’, over 800,000 people die by suicide across the world each year. As this volunteer emphasized, identifying the reason for an individual’s suicidal tendencies can be challenging. “There is no single clear trigger factor for suicide. It can be a multitude of factors or a single factor that will trigger this based upon the circumstance and his or her ability to cope with the issue the individual is facing,” she explained. The cause behind a person’s suicide could be biological, psychological, social, cultural as well as environmental. “Therefore all these aspects should be taken into consideration in helping an individual in suicidal thoughts,” she added.

The individual may feel that there are no solutions for problems and no end to pain. They feel helpless, hopeless and isolated. They are unable to think rationally as they are overwhelmed by pain. The Sumitharaya volunteer explaining causes behind these numbers said that the figures, including the numbers in Sri Lanka, are likely to be higher, mainly due to the stigma associated with suicide. “In Sri Lankan context suicidal persons go unnoticed because we fail to listen to them. We grew up in a culture which encouraged us to hide our feelings and bottle up our sorrows. We weren’t encouraged to listen to another person’s feelings,” the volunteer said.

Be a friend
She further explained how a simple act of showing care and concern to someone who may be vulnerable to suicide can become a game-changer. “When a person comes up with such a thought our usual response is ‘Pissu natanne nathuwa inna’ or ‘don’t fool around’. Such words can’t help a suicidal person,” she explained.

A person with suicidal thoughts is a person battling against everyone else in the society. Emotional pain is excruciating that he or she thinks no other person in the world can understand what they are going through. The pain is intolerable that they can only think about ending their lives because other options or solutions are merely invisible.

The volunteer quoting an article by International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) pointed out, ‘Asking them whether they are okay, listening to what they have to say in a non-judgmental way and letting them know you care can all have a significant impact.’ “In other words, just being their friend can change a lot of things for their betterment,” she emphasized. The article also mentions that isolation increases the risk of suicide, and, conversely, having strong social connections offers protection against it. So being there for someone who has become disconnected can be life-saving.

“Sometimes we say that people who talk about suicide don’t really commit the act. It is a myth. Always take suicidal comments very seriously,” she stressed. “When a person says that he or she is thinking about suicide, you must always take the comments seriously. Assuming that the person is only seeking attention is a very serious mistake we make. Get help immediately.” She said that these symptoms should be considered as a good sign that the person is in need of an empathetic ear and emotional support.

Talking about suicide is extremely sensitive for both parties. “Accepting your feelings as well as accepting and respecting the feelings of other people is very important. You need not be a professional to help them. But be extremely careful about the things you say, you don’t want to do further damage,” she said adding that if needed, one must try to encourage the person to get help from a trained professional.

Role of media
She also spoke about the role of media in supporting suicide prevention. “We have given our support in various media awareness programs which spoke about the ethical recommendations of reporting suicide cases. Yet it is very sad to see how some media reports the incidents as if they are in support of the act,” she complained.

When reporting, suicide must be considered as a public health concern rather than a crime. Code of conduct guide book published by the Sri Lanka Press Institute says that reporting mental health issues including suicide should be done in a sensitive manner, so as to not sensationalize incidents of suicide and the methods used for such by persons of unstable mind.

It is advised to avoid reporting that death by suicide was preceded by a single event, such as a recent job loss, divorce or bad grades. It also advises media not to romanticize or promote the story depicting it as a way of achieving goals. It also tells media to avoid using graphical representations or detailed descriptions of methods and instead promote the places where people can seek help.

“But sadly, regardless of the number of awareness programs local media doesn’t seem to follow these guidelines. Reporting like this leaves the public with an overly simplistic and misleading understanding of suicide,” she lamented.

She also mentioned how local artistes can lend a hand in preventing suicide using various forms of art including teledramas, films, stage plays or novels. “It doesn’t necessarily have to be awareness programs. Even art can be used in suicide prevention since it reaches the society more rapidly and effectively than other forms of awareness programs,” she emphasized.

Educating children
She reiterated the importance of spreading awareness in the society about suicide prevention. Since the numbers are high in reported teenage suicide cases, she mentioned that educating children about the risks and ways of seeking help should be given high priority. “We are currently conducting awareness programs in schools, especially in international schools, on invitation. It’s really difficult to get permission to conduct awareness programs in government schools,” she said adding that teaching children about coping strategies, assertiveness skills and helping others can play a significant role in prevention process.

Sumithraya volunteers
Sumithrayas, a significant branch of Sri Lanka Sumithrayo, plays an important role in suicide prevention programs in the country. Sri Lanka Sumithrayo is now at no. 60B, Horton Place, Colombo 07, which was gifted by its beloved founder – Joan de Mel.

“We are open every day of the week to provide emotional support for those who are in distress, giving special attention to the cases which may lead to suicide,” is how she explained the aim of the organization. Every ‘Sumithraya’ (translates to English as ‘Good friends’) supporting this service is a trained volunteer who is willing to make a positive change in the society. “We meet people face to face or listen to them over the phone. Also, there is a system where we talk to them via emails,” she said adding that they receive roughly 150 calls per month.

“Sometimes there are people who come here every day. We do our part to the best of our capabilities, being their friend and if they need further support we direct them to the professionals since we do not provide therapy or medication,” she said appreciating the support they receive from the National Hospital. She further mentioned that they give priority to maintaining confidentiality of people who seek emotional support from them explaining why they want to be anonymous in the society for what they do.

“Whatever they tell us, they tell us because they trust us to maintain the confidentiality. If they meet us outside the Sumithrayas setting they shouldn’t be feeling uncomfortable. They should be able to place their complete trust in us in order to a better relationship,” she said.

Light a candle and show support
You can join the Sumithraya volunteers at 60B, Horton Place, Colombo 7 at 8 pm on September 10 to light a candle – to show your support for suicide prevention, to remember a lost loved one and the survivors of suicide.

2015年世界自殺防治日
世界連線─健康心理與預防自殺策略研討會
活動簡章

壹、 緣由:
自殺是舉世矚目的公共衛生議題,隨著社會邁向現代化的過程中,個人的內在自我卻無法受到良好的照顧,於是自殺成為一種面對問題的選擇方式。在20世紀中葉開始,電話成為自殺防治的重要服務策略之一。

在台灣地區,生命線運用電話輔導,透過大量的志工人力、專業人員,以對社區中求助的民眾提供服務,每年撥打生命線「1995」協談輔導專線的人數屢創新高,在2014年服務人次更是突破16萬6000人次,新聞媒體、報章雜誌在報導自殺相關新聞時,也都會打上「珍愛生命,請撥打1995」。根據2009年的研究調查,台灣有66%的民眾認為,對於想自殺的人而言,親友是最有幫助的求助管道。另外,25.5%的民眾認為心理諮商輔導專線或機構對產生自殺想法的人有幫助。在生命線40餘年的服務經驗中,曾有民眾遇到周遭親友或是藉由網路得知有人想自殺的消息時,透過Email或電話的方式通知生命線,期待生命線可以協助處理救援,顯示國人對生命線共同參與自殺防治的社會期待。

為促進大眾對於自殺的理解並有效預防,世界衛生組織WHO及世界自殺防治學會IASP將9月10日訂為「世界自殺防治日」,今年主題為「Preventing Suicide: Reaching Out and Saving Lives」,並在全球各地會辦理相關活動,推動世界自殺防治日的宣導及預防自殺。生命線投入自殺防治與心理衛生工作不遺餘力,也將共同呼應,邀請社會大眾、專業人士對於自殺議題的注意與重視,將於9月8日辦理研討會,進行論文發表,藉此培育學校老師、護理師、社工、諮商師進行自殺防治相關工作的能力,並建立自殺防治保護網絡。

貳、 會議日期:
2015年9月8日(二)0900-1700

參、 會議地點:
亞洲大學國際會議廳M001

肆、 費用:
800元,辦理單位人員500元(含手冊及便當)

伍、 辦理單位
社團法人國際生命線台灣總會、亞洲大學社會工作學系、中華民國社會工作師公會全國聯合會、社團法人台灣社會發展研究學會、社團法人台灣基督徒社會工作人員協會、社團法人高雄市身心障礙團體聯合總會

陸、 參加人數:
100人

柒、 內容:
生命線的服務日益多元化,助人工作者從實務中累積許多寶貴的經驗,透過「世界與您為伴,共同守護心理健康研討會」的發表,讓助人工作者可以整理第一線的實務經驗,與各地生命線協會及相關工作者彼此分享交流。

Всесвітній день запобігання самогубствам

10 вересня щорічно відзначається Всесвітній день запобігання самогубствам. Він був заснований Всесвітньою організацією охорони здоров'я спільно з Міжнародною асоціацією по запобіганню самогубствам.

Самогубство в сучасному світі є однією з найбільш актуальних психологічних і соціальних проблем. Безліч чинників, з якими стикається людина у повсякденному житті, в певний момент можуть штовхнути її на злочин проти самої себе. За даними міжнародних організацій, половина всіх насильницьких смертей припадає на випадки суїциду. Щорічно на такий злочин вирішується близько мільйона людей в усьому світі.

Це свято — один із способів звернути увагу людей на цю сумну статистику. Адже тенденції ведуть до того, що з кожним роком суїцидів в розвинених країнах стає все більше і більше. Найбільша частка суїцидів фіксується в країнах Східної Європи. Найменше самогубств здійснюють в Латинській Америці і державах, в яких офіційною релігією є іслам. По країнах африканського континенту міжнародні організації практично не володіють статистикою по суїцидам.

Cornwall


Suicide prevention partnership to hold saving lives event

Around 60-70 people in Cornwall die by suicide each year and that number is consistently higher than might be expected for the size of the population.

To raise awareness about the issue an event is being held at County Hall in Truro on 10 September, which is World Suicide Prevention Day.

The event has been organised by Sara Roberts, consultant in public health at Cornwall Council. She says “The theme for Suicide Prevention Day this year is ‘reaching out: saving lives’. We want to reach out to join others around the world to address this important public health problem,but we are doing it with a very local focus. So we’ll be exploring a number of different ways of reaching out to save lives in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly - reaching out to the suicide prevention community, reaching out to vulnerable individuals to show them that someone cares and to put them in touch with relevant services, and reaching out to support those who have been bereaved by suicide.”

The event forms part of a collaborative programme in South West England, through which local partnerships are working together with a shared aim towards achieving ‘zero suicides’. It will be attended by people who work in public, private or voluntary sectors to support people who may be at risk of suicide, or to reduce risk at a population level, and representatives of people who have experience of suicidal risk.

It is hard to imagine the extreme psychological pain that leads someone to think that suicide is the only course of action. People who have experienced this suggest that just having someone reach out to them at that crucial time to show care and concern can really help. Dr. Chris Hamilton, a consultant clinical psychologist at Outlook South West, the largest provider of talking therapies in Cornwall, will be encouraging participants to think about their own role as individuals. He says “if we see someone who is distressed, we should have the courage to ask them if they are ok. Just listening to what they have to say can give them time to think and reflect and it can make a huge difference.”

Councillor Jeremy Rowe, Chairman of the Health and Wellbeing Board added: “Every suicide is a tragedy for the person concerned and the people left behind. There is no single or simple solution to this, so I welcome this event bringing people together from a number of different organisations to share information and work together.”

Isolation increases the risk of suicide and, conversely, having strong social connections is protective against it. Therefore, being there for someone who has become disconnected can be life-saving. The support of family and friends is crucial, but it is often not enough. It may also be necessary to put vulnerable individuals in touch with relevant services. Attendees at the event will find out about how local services are working together to prevent suicides. There will be a formal agenda of speakers, but also plenty of opportunity to network. A ‘market place’ of service provider stalls will provide information about the support services available locally.

Suicide is devastating for families, friends and community members who are left behind. In Cornwall & Isles of Scilly we are fortunate to have a Suicide Liaison Service to provide professional support following suicide bereavement, but everyone can be encouraged to offer a sympathetic, non-judgemental ear, reaching out to give someone who has been bereaved by suicide the opportunity to talk about their loss, in their own time, on their own terms.

Seminar/Webinar: Preventing Suicide in Low Resources Settings

According to the World Health Organization report: Preventing Suicide: A Global Imperative, over 800,000 people die by suicide each year, globally, and many more attempt suicide. The impact on families, friends and communities is far-reaching for many years forward. In public health, suicide often fails to be prioritized as a major problem and despite an increase in research and understanding about suicide, the stigma around suicide prevents people from seeking help when needed and health systems services often fail to provide timely and effective help.

This year’s World Suicide Prevention Day will be marked by the theme Preventing Suicide: Reaching Out and Saving Lives. The Mental Health Innovation Network and the LSE Health are hosting a seminar - “Preventing Suicide in Low Resource Settings” - to honour this day. The seminar will bring together a distinguished panel of experts with experience in Africa, Asia, and Latin America. Speakers will discuss their experiences of developing successful suicide prevention interventions and national-level suicide prevention guidelines in low resource settings.

Key Information

Date: Thursday, September 10th, 2015

Time: 18:00 – 19:00 BST

Venue: John Snow Lecture Theatre, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine

Attendance to this event is free, but please register here: http://goo.gl/kZ1j1F. If you are unable to attend the event and would like to watch the seminar remotely, please contact MHIN at mhin@lshtm.ac.uk for the live link. The seminar will be recorded and will be available on this page shortly after the event.

Programme:

Moderator
Professor Ricardo Araya | Professor of Global Mental Health and Co-Director of the Centre for Global Mental Health at London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine

Speakers
Dr Jason Bantjes | Lecturer, Department of Psychology at Stellenbosch University in South Africa
Dr Bantjes will provide a brief overview of the research that is needed to develop suicide prevention interventions based on his experiences working in a hospital based environment. He will also highlight the mismatch between the needs of suicide attempters and current services in South Africa and will call attention to the need for greater psychological input and hospital-based suicide prevention interventions that can be offered to patients without necessitating hospital admissions.

Dr Erminia Colucci | Lecturer, Centre of Psychiatry at Queen Mary University of London in the UK

Through a recent collaboration between a panel of Sri Lankan experts, the Global and Cultural Mental Health Unit at the University of Melbourne, and Mental Health First Aid, Sri Lanka saw the development of its first set of guidelines for suicide prevention. Dr Colucci was a key driving force through this process and will be launching the guidelines during her presentation.

Presentations will be followed by an opportunity for questions from the audience.

Families to release balloons in tribute to the lost

Uttoxeter Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide (SOBS) is inviting anyone who has been affected by suicide to the Manor Golf Club, in Kingstone, on Thursday, September 10.

The event takes place on World Suicide Prevention Day.

Team couple Joy and Phil Heal, whose son, Jonathan, took his own life, run the organisation.

Kelly Bradley, who lost big brother Dan, is another event organiser.

Mrs Heal told the Advertiser Sue Thompson, mother of Mike Thompson, who died last year, will give a reading.

Family members will release balloons in memory of their loved ones.
Mrs Heal said: "We lost Jonathan four years ago and a lot of our time since then has been spent setting up SOBS.

"But there's another side of it too and that's trying to prevent anyone from having to go through what we've had to.

"It's World Suicide Prevention Day and we felt we should do something in memory of Jonathan and others who have taken their own lives.

"I put it out on Facebook and asked if anyone knew of any venues and Kelly got straight back to me suggesting the Manor Golf Club.

"It's really to raise awareness because we were in complete ignorance about suicide before Jonathan died.

"We thought at the time Jonathan would be one of the only ones to take their own life that year, but sadly that's not the case.

"The reality is that suicide is a lot more common than people think and it can be prevented in some cases.

"For the first time, it's now the biggest killer of men aged between 15 and 35.

"We want to get the message across that it's OK to ask someone who's been struggling mentally if they've had any suicidal thoughts.

"It can be a massive relief for those people to talk about it.

"People will be invited to do readings in memory of their loved ones and I've got cards for people to write messages to them. It's going to be very emotional."

More information about the event is available by calling Uttoxeter SOBS on 07950 269539.

Warrington, Chesire


World Suicide Prevention Day - 10 September 2015 & World Mental Health Day - 10 October 2015

The theme for World Suicide Prevention Day 2015 is “Preventing Suicide, Reaching Out and Saving Lives”.

This year, on 10th September, to mark World Suicide Prevention Day, Warrington’s Public Health Team will be sharing a new resource, the Stepping Up Flowchart: identifying suicide risk and keeping people safe. The flowchart, which has been developed for frontline workers in Warrington, guides the reader through structured questions to ask. It also includes an explanation of the key routes into local mental health support services.

The aim of the flowchart is to help identify when people might need more intensive support; and to help people stay safe by raising awareness of the range of support available in Warrington.

On 10th September 2015 you'll be able to download a PDF of Warrington's suicide prevention flowchart from this page.

Free toolkits of campaign resources
New toolkits of resources have also been developed for people in Warrington, who are planning activities or events to mark World Suicide Prevention Day or World Mental Health Day. The toolkits are free and will soon be available to borrow from Warrington Health Promotion Resource Centre. The aim of the toolkits is to offer ideas and materials to help people structure, or to complement, awareness raising activities they’re planning. Although the toolkits can be used at any time of the year, we’re particularly keen to promote their use around World Suicide Prevention Day and World Mental Health Day.

Check back here soon for details of how you can book out one of the toolkits for your event or activity.

The suicide prevention toolkits will contain a range of resources including information about:

The toolkits will also have ideas and materials for ways to reach out and engage with people. These materials can be used to structure discussion in a closed group activity, or if you’re having an information stall they can be used to engage people passing by. The resources designed to help you engage with people will include:

The contents of the World Mental Health Day toolkit, will be similar, but we plan to include a number of materials reflecting this year’s theme for World Mental Health Day “Dignity in Mental Health”.

World Suicide Prevention Day Flagstaff Semi-colon Project

We are contacting you in regards to a local charity event to take place on September 10th, World Suicide Prevention Day. The event is centered around The Semicolon Project (www.projectsemicolon.com), a national movement to raise awareness of suicide prevention, depression, addiction, and self-harm.

In support of the project Birch Avenue Tattoo is offering $20 semicolon tattoos. A semicolon is used when an author could have chosen to end their sentence, but chose not to. Therefore, the semicolon has come to represent making the choice not to end one's life. We encourage survivors, advocates for mental health and anyone who understands the value of taking a pause to come get a tattoo. The money from this event will go to the Northern Arizona chapter of NAMI (National Alliance for Mental Illness).

Also, in recognition of World Suicide Prevention Day we will have the mayor or a city counsel member to read a proclamation on the morning of September 10th outside of Flagstaff Medical Center.

Fort Lauderdale, Florida


The Love Sami Organization, dedicated to suicide prevention, advocacy and awareness, will be holding a candle light and lantern lighting memorial ceremony on Thursday, September 10th in observance of World Suicide Prevention Day. The ceremony will be held at the Washingtonia Avenue Portal on the beach in Lauderdale by the Sea.

Love Sami Organization is a 100% non profit grassroots organization dedicated to raising awareness about suicide prevention, awareness and advocacy. The World Health Organization (WHO) reports that every year, over 800,000 people die from suicide; this roughly corresponds to one death every 40 seconds. The number of lives lost each year through suicide exceeds the number of deaths due to homicide and war combined.

According to Love Sami Founder, John Coburn, "Suicide is the fifth leading causes of death among those aged 30-49 years in 2012 globally and is the second leading cause of death in the 15-29 years age group in 2012 globally as well.

"Overall, it is estimated that during 2012 for each adult who died of suicide there were over 20 others who made suicide attempts. The psychological pain that leads each of these individuals to take their lives is unimaginable. Suicide is complex with psychological, social, biological, cultural and environmental factors involved. Connectedness is crucial to individuals who may be vulnerable to suicide. Studies have shown that social isolation can increase the risk of suicide and, conversely, that having strong human bonds can be protective against it. Reaching out to those who have become disconnected from others and offering them support and friendship may be a life-saving act.

"We want people who are despairing and thinking about suicide to know that there is help available. All you need to do is to ask for help. We expect 100 people to turn out. Ceremony's such as these mean so much to the survivors of suicide."

Love Sami Organization provides therapeutic healing experiences to suicide survivors, their family members and their loved ones as well as to veterans. These experiences include such memorable and unforgettable trips like shark tagging with the Guy Harvey Research Institute, dolphin swims, art therapy programs, discover scuba diving programs and so much more.

The organization also works heavily with Veterans. Currently twenty two Veterans every day take their lives by suicide. September 13th, Love Sami Organization will be taking a group of veterans to one of their sponsors, Dade City's Wild Things, to be able to swim with a baby tiger cub.

Love Sami Organization was founded by John Coburn, whose daughter Sami Coburn, 19, a New Jersey, Mays Landing resident, took her life in August of 2014. Devastated by the loss of his daughter and trying to find a way to heal himself, he found that by reaching out to others in a similar situation had a healing effect for him. With Love Sami, he hopes to be able to touch the lives of other survivors in a powerful positive healing way.

John's youngest daughter, Sami, was a very giving and caring young lady and she was known for always helping and reaching out to others. Sami also held near and dear to her heart special needs individuals and to that end Love Sami created the six tentacles of giving. The Love Sami logo, an adorable pink octopus, has only six legs which give a nod to the special needs she cared about so much. Each tentacle represents a "giving" back cause: Veterans, Autism, Breast Cancer, Special Needs, Ocean Conservation and Transplant Foundations.

Love Sami works with other like minded organizations such as Florida Initiative for Suicide Prevention, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, Tomorrows Rainbow and many others to create as much awareness as possible. Love Sami participated in the FISP 5K event May 9th, where founder John Coburn placed at 4th in his age group. Love Sami will be doing the Out of the Darkness walk with AFFSP October 4th for the New Jersey/Philadelphia area. Future walk plans include walking for Autism at Nova Southeastern University September 26th in Davie, Florida and a walk coming up in 2016 at Disney World in Orlando.

Love Sami raises money to provide these services to survivors by hosting fundraisers throughout Florida and online. Their first event which was held in April at the Fort Lauderdale location Fishtales was hugely successful and included raffle prizes and a silent auction with items being donated by Guy Harvey, Wyland, Hard Rock Hotel and many other amazing businesses. They have several events planned for 2015, including a paintball shoot out, a BBQ Picnic, Passions Nightclub and a golf tournament. There is also a Love Sami store where you will find numerous items for sale, such as limited edition designed walk T-Shirts, pens, mugs, hats, and so much more. All proceeds raised are used to fund the trips and events for survivors, the billboard program, the Love Sami Village and other like minded healing programs and therapies. Most recently, they created a petition on Change.org: Pass Love Sami's Law. They are petitioning the US Government for changes to be made for the betterment of suicide prevention.

Future plans include billboards in New Jersey and Florida which will feature the suicide prevention line phone number. Funds are being raised for the billboards on the Go Fund Me website. The organization hopes to create a Love Sami village in the Florida Keys where survivors can go at no cost to participate in many experiences such as paddle boarding, boating, sound healing, yoga, meditation and more in a tranquil, peaceful setting surrounded by nature and on the ocean.

Love Sami is completely volunteer run and their goal is to be recognized as a four star charity. At Love Sami event's you will find a compilation book with all their goals, achievements and events. Inside you will find their most current P&L statement, making them a completely transparent organization.

To learn how you can become involved message Love Sami Organization at info@lovesami.org or visit their website at www.LoveSami.org.

Parsippany, New Jersey


Parsipanny World Suicide Prevention Day

There are more than 2000 suicides a day worldwide. For every 1 suicide, there are 20 suicide attempts. With your help, we can reduce these statistics by changing the conversation from suicide to suicide prevention.

On September 10, World Suicide Prevention Day, McCann Torre Lazur, part of McCann Health, is launching Because life is #worthliving: #attemptlife, a worldwide movement aimed to help save a life by supporting suicide prevention.

What is Because life is #worthliving: #attemptlife?
Simply put, Because life is #worthliving: #attemptlife is a call to share videos attempting something new and showing why every day is worth living, in support of suicide prevention. For example: attempt asking someone on a date or attempt going on a scary roller coaster. Your video could show support to the community and perhaps make it easier for someone to ask for help.

How did it all begin?
Because life is #worthliving: #attemptlife builds on McCann Torre Lazur’s 2014 #worthliving Suicide Prevention Initiative that invited people to share a photo or a video to demonstrate why every day matters. #worthliving was started by an employee after losing her significant other to suicide. “I knew when the time was right, I would find a way to make sense of what had happened by doing something to change it,” Jennifer Dee, VP, Executive Producer at McCann Torre Lazur and #worthliving creator, said. “We are not doctors, but we have a great passion to help those in need by the work we do.”

What’s the goal?
To support suicide prevention, and ultimately…to help save a life.
Suicide is complex with psychological, social, biological, cultural, and environmental factors involved. Feeling connected is crucial to individuals who may be vulnerable to suicide. In fact, studies have shown that social isolation can increase the risk of suicide and, conversely, that having strong human bonds can help protect against it. So why not reach out to those who may be disconnected from others and offer them support and friendship?
Your brave, goofy, fun attempt can be a life-saving act.v
What is the challenge?
The ask is simple: film a shareable video, by yourself or with friends, attempting something you haven’t done before. It’s completely acceptable for you to not succeed or mess up—it’s part of the charm! Use the hashtag #worthliving or #attemptlife when sharing across social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram. Then, tag others and encourage them to share similar attempts! That’s it.

Because life is #worthliving: #attemptlife

Port Angeles, Washington


Walk, Compassion Rally to focus on suicide prevention Thursday in Port Angeles

A walk and Compassion Rally to raise awareness for prevention of suicide is planned Thursday.

Walkers will gather at City Pier at 4 p.m. and then move up Lincoln Street toward Peninsula Behavioral Health's main office at 118 E. Eighth St., where six people will talk at the Compassion Rally at 5 p.m.

The walk and rally are organized by the Clallam County Chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness and Peninsula Behavioral Health.

Suicide is often the culmination of a battle with mental illness, said Rebekah Miller, development coordinator for Peninsula Behavioral Health.

The message of the event will be to understand the healing properties of compassion, according to Debbie Fredson, Peninsula Behavioral Health case manager and NAMI board member who has spearheaded the walk and rally.

“We want to reduce the stigma around mental illness and instill the importance of compassion for self and others,” she said.

“If people are informed and aware of support and services, we can build a resilient community to prevent suicide.”

Said Miller: “So few people talk about suicide.

“Families who lose a person to suicide often don't get the compassion of those who lose a family member to illness, so we want to start a conversation about that, so people know how to broach the subject.

“I think the world is becoming aware that this is a big problem,” Miller added.

The International Association for Suicide Prevention of Washington, D.C., has designated Thursday as World Suicide Prevention Day.

Suicide was the 10th leading cause of death in the United States in 2013, when 41,149 people took their lives, according to the Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, Ga.

That year, suicide was the second-leading cause of death nationwide for those between the ages of 15 and 34.

Clallam County has had 51 deaths from suicide between 2008 and 2010, according to a community health assessment issued in 2012.

From 2008-10, the rate for Clallam County was 20.9 per 100,000 people, higher than the state rate of 13.4 per 100,000.

The rate in Jefferson County for the same time period was 10.2 per 100,000.

Among the most public suicides have been those from Port Angeles' two Eighth Street bridges, which span Valley Creek and Tumwater Truck Route.

Four deaths by suicide from the spans have been reported since 2009, when the city replaced bridges built in 1936.

The new bridges have 4-foot-6-inch wall railings and stand 100 feet above the gorges.

In 2014, the city of Port Angeles installed signs on the bridges with crisis hotline phone numbers urging those contemplating suicide to call Peninsula Behavioral Health, located three blocks east of the spans.

In April, City Councilwoman Cherie Kidd received consent from her council colleagues to seek grant funding for higher railings to serve as suicide-prevention barriers on the Eighth Street bridges.

On Thursday, those walking to the rally will carry signs and walk to the beat of therapist Erran Sharpe's drum.

Sharpe will be one of the speakers, all of whom will focus on advocacy, support and community education.

Among them will be Dr. Joshua Jones, Peninsula Behavioral Health's medical director, and two clinicians from the agency: Lucille Celestino and Kim Ykema.

Also speaking will be Suzanne Debey, a retired social studies teacher who is the lay leader at the Congregation Olympic B'nai Shalom in Port Angeles and Unity minister Rev. Barb Wilson.

They “will offer their distinctive perspectives on compassion and how to reach out to someone with depression,” Miller said.

Isolation increases the risk of suicide, Miller said.

“Conversely having strong social connections protects against it,” she added.

She emphasized the value of listening.

“Whether you are looking at somebody who is contemplating suicide or who has lost someone to suicide, the best thing to do is to listen to them in a non-judgemental way,” she said.

El suicidio es un fenómeno social que se debe investigar y divulgar (IVIC)

¿Hablar sobre suicidios pudiera acelerar la ocurrencia de estos casos, como si se tratara de una epidemia de origen viral? Según el investigador del Centro de Antropología del Instituto Venezolano de Investigaciones Científicas (Ivic) y director del documental El silencio de las moscas, Eliézer Arias, este tema requiere difusión y estudios a profundidad.

“Si lo escondes estás ocultando el problema. Al contrario, creo que se debe visibilizar, sobre todo en las zonas rurales donde a veces sus habitantes no están al tanto de la situación”, explicó Arias durante una rueda de prensa organizada este jueves 3 septiembre desde el Trasnocho Cultural, ubicado en Las Mercedes.

Precisamente, la película -de 92 minutos de duración- expone con sutileza y riqueza audiovisual una realidad tabú en algunas comunidades agrícolas del estado Mérida, donde se ha observado el aumento alarmante de las tasas de suicidios entre adolescentes y jóvenes menores de 35 años.

De corte etnográfico y sensorial, la película El silencio de las moscas será estrenada el próximo viernes 11 de septiembre en las salas de cine del Trasnocho Cultural y las cadenas Cines Unidos y Cinex en Caracas. Toda persona mayor de 14 años podrá apreciarla en la pantalla grande.

Posteriormente, se trasladará a otras 10 ciudades del país, incluyendo Guatire, Maracay, Valencia, Barquisimeto, Mérida, Maracaibo, San Cristóbal, Porlamar, Barcelona y Puerto Ordaz.

Antes de estas proyecciones, a partir del viernes 4 de septiembre, El silencio de las moscas se estará presentando en la VIII Muestra de Cine Latinoamericano 2015, organizada por el Centro Nacional Autónomo de Cinematografía (Cnac), el Circuito Gran Cine y Queiroz Publicidad.

En el marco del Día Mundial para la Prevención del Suicidio, el jueves 10 de septiembre se realizará un cine-foro en compañía del psicoanalista Carlos Rasquin como moderador. La cita será en el Trasnocho Cultural a las 7:00 pm.

Nhân ngày Phòng chống tự tử thế giới: Đừng để họ tổn thương

Hầu hết các vụ tự tử của giới trẻ thời gian qua có nguyên nhân hết sức đơn giản, nhỏ nhặt. Nếu được quan tâm chia sẻ, có thể ngăn ngừa, giúp họ trở lại với đời

Ngày 7-9, hội thảo “Truyền thông với vấn đề tự tử” đã được Trung tâm Phòng chống khủng hoảng tâm lý (PCP) tổ chức tại Hà Nội.

Tỉ lệ cao ở nhóm 15 - 24 tuổi

Bà Nguyễn Vân Anh, Giám đốc PCP, cho biết mỗi năm thế giới có khoảng 1 triệu người chết vì tự tử. So với 50 năm trước, con số này đã tăng trên 60%.

Cũng theo bà Anh, Việt Nam chưa có sự quan tâm thỏa đáng với vấn đề tự tử. Cách đây hơn 10 năm, một nghiên cứu về các trẻ tự tử thực hiện tại Khoa Cấp cứu Bệnh viện Nhi Đồng 1 (TPHCM) cho thấy tỉ lệ trẻ em nữ tự tử nhiều hơn trẻ em nam (60%) và phần lớn trẻ tự tử sống với cha mẹ (gần 88%). Nguyên nhân tự tử gần 90% do xung đột trong gia đình và hóa chất là phương tiện dùng để tự tử phổ biến nhất.

Một nghiên cứu khác thực hiện tại TP Đà Nẵng vào năm 2004 cũng ghi nhận gần 500 ca tự tử, tăng gấp 4 lần so với năm trước đó, phần lớn ở độ tuổi 25 - 44. Nguyên nhân dẫn đến tự tử là do bức xúc về gia đình, xã hội, tình cảm, mắc bệnh mãn tính…


Tư vấn cho bệnh nhân có các vấn đề về tâm lý, bệnh lý tại Bệnh viện Tâm thần Trung ương I
Tại Hà Nội, kết quả khảo sát trên hơn 5.000 người dân và hơn 500 bệnh nhân tự tử đến cấp cứu tại Bệnh viện Bạch Mai cho thấy 2,6% - 25% có ý định tự tử, 1% - 15% từng có kế hoạch tự tử và 0,4% - 4,2% đã thực hiện hành vi tự tử. Có 13/19 người tự tử đã cố gắng bày tỏ ý định của mình với người khác nhưng chỉ có 3 trường hợp thể hiện bằng cách nói chuyện.

Trong số gần 10.500 trường hợp được khảo sát, công bố năm 2010 có tới 25% đã tìm cách kết thúc cuộc sống của mình, 73% đã trải qua cảm giác buồn chán và 7,5% có những hành động làm đau bản thân nhằm thoát khỏi tâm lý căng thẳng; thanh thiếu niên từ 15-24 tuổi là nhóm có ý nghĩ tự tử cao nhất, nữ có ý nghĩ tự tử cao gấp 2 lần nam.

Cần điều trị tâm lý, bệnh lý

Bác sĩ Nguyễn Xuân Hương, Khoa Tâm thần nhi Bệnh viện Tâm thần Trung ương I, cho biết hầu hết các vụ tự tử của giới trẻ thời gian qua là có nguyên nhân từ những việc hết sức đơn giản, nhỏ nhặt. Chẳng hạn, học sinh bị thầy cô giáo phạt, bị điểm kém, cha mẹ mắng chửi, áp lực học hành, thất tình…

“Ở giai đoạn giao thời giữa tính cách trẻ con và người lớn, tâm hồn thường dễ xúc động, nhạy cảm. Lúc ấy, trẻ muốn chứng tỏ mình đã lớn còn cha mẹ luôn nghĩ các em vẫn là trẻ con nên không có sự chia sẻ. Thậm chí có những chuyện người lớn cho là vớ vẩn, nhỏ nhặt nhưng với các em lại rất lớn nên phản ứng bằng những lo âu, xáo trộn và có thể dễ dàng tìm đến cái chết khi không được bố mẹ quan tâm, chia sẻ hoặc bị áp đặt”- bác sĩ Hương nói thêm.

Với kinh nghiệm nhiều năm cứu người tự tử trên sông Hồng, thượng tá Lê Đức Đoàn, Đội CSGT số 1 của Công an TP Hà Nội, khẳng định tự tử có thể ngăn được bởi khi có ý định quyên sinh thì ánh mắt của họ thường đờ dại, thất thần, vô cảm và nếu tinh ý, chúng ta có thể nhận biết để ngăn chặn. Theo bác sĩ Hương, với những người có ý định tự tử hoặc tự tử không thành rất cần được điều trị tâm lý hoặc bệnh lý. Chỉ cần không vô cảm để nhận biết, chia sẻ tâm tư thì sẽ có thể đưa họ trở lại cuộc đời.

Ngày 10-9 là ngày Phòng chống tự tử thế giới. Tại Việt Nam, lần đầu tiên PCP được thành lập với mục đích phòng chống khủng hoảng tâm lý và tự tử. PCP ưu tiên quan tâm và hỗ trợ các nhóm đối tượng dễ bị tổn thương trong xã hội như trẻ em, thanh niên, nạn nhân của bạo lực giới… Khi có vấn đề trầm cảm, buồn chán, người dân có thể gọi số: 04.37759336 để được tư vấn.

Poems to raise awareness of suicide and its impact to be published for the week in September on The Poetry Shed.


To Write Love On Her Arms

World Suicide Prevention Day is September 10, which coincides with National Suicide Prevention Week (September 7-13) in America. We are proud to announce this year’s campaign, which is inspired by words that closed out last year’s “No One Else Can Play Your Part” campaign:

We’ll See You Tomorrow

“Above all else, we choose to stay. We choose to fight the darkness and the sadness, to fight the questions and the lies and the myth of all that’s missing. We choose to stay, because we are stories still going. Because there is still some time for things to turn around, time for surprises and for change. We stay because no one else can play our part.

We"ll See You Tomorrow

Instagram Photo Challenge To Support Suicide Prevention

Instagram Photo Challenge To Support Suicide Prevention This September

A 10 Day Photo Challenge is set to engage thousands of kiwi teenagers in life-affirming conversation in the lead up to World Suicide Prevention Day, Sept 10.

The challenge, created by Zeal’s youth issues project Live For Tomorrow, involves young people posting a photo on Instagram each day in response to a prompt such as “your happy place” or “future goals”.

The challenge culminates in a #HandOverHeart selfie on World Suicide Prevention Day, a call to stand in solidarity with those struggling. New Zealand’s most recent suicide toll is the highest since records have been kept.

“Research shows that young people at risk of self harm and suicide spend more time online than others,” says Zeal Advocacy Manager and project creator, Elliot Taylor.

“The challenge seeks to encourage the practice of mindfulness in young people who already spend much of their time online, and to foster positive connections with those they love.”

In 2014, over 8,000 photos were posted, reaching over one million feeds and engaging hundreds of thousands of people. The initiative received international attention and was also a finalist in the 2015 NZ Social Media Awards.

The 10 Day Photo Challenge was co-designed with young people from Zeal’s Social Marketing Collective, based at Zeal’s youth facility in West Auckland.

“By sheer involvement, I have become a happier, brighter person,” says member Grace King (20). “I've come to embrace the people around me who I know will always be there to support me.”

The official 10 Day Photo Challenge picture is available at http://www.bit.ly/livefortmw15.

Those taking part are encouraged to use the hashtag #LiveForTomorrow.

WE MATTER
In honor of World Suicide Prevention Day, I challenge you to help me kick off a "tell me about it" campaign. Every life matters and sometimes we need to reflect on why people matter. I challenge you to post why you and someone else matter. I matter, you matter - together we matter. I will be collecting reasons until 10/20/15. On 10/21/15 it will be one year since I lost the love of my life to suicide and to help spread awareness about all of our importance I want to encourage as many people as possible to give a shout out to their self and others and let the world know WE MATTER. My family and I will release all the reasons back to nature via a bon fire on Oct. 21 as we remember the one we lost. All messages received will be converted to a paper copy and added to the fire. In the comments finish this statement "I matter because..." Then "______________ matters because..."

It's not enough to tell someone why they are important, that person also has to believe in themselves. Dig deep, find your reason and let it be known. If you are called out, I challenge you to share why you matter and also acknowledge another person - you may find that several people look at you for strength, guidance, and hope. The clock is ticking - tell me about it!
