Verizon has invited its employees globally to cycle for awareness of suicide prevention during the first half of September. All miles will be collected and Verizon's total will be posted. This is part of an ongoing corporate-wide effort to help eliminate the stigma associated with depression, mental illness and suicide. This is really a global event and not limited to the USA.


The QPR Institute is now offer QPR instructor certification training entirely online outside of the US and Canada, with a license to print materials (booklets and cards) in unlimited numbers for 3 years in one's country of origin. This allows QPR to train instructors in Malaysia, India, and Africa; where the cost of training is adjusted to World Bank zones - which achieves our public health goal of making training affordable, accessible, available, and adequate to detect new at risk folks pretty much anywhere.

•QPR will be releasing two new videos, one of which is devoted to the global issue of suicide. This video is intended for use by any of our instructors in the US or around the world who wish to invite stakeholders to participate in suicide prevention by learning QPR. The video will be made available to more than 7,000 active trainers in the US and in S. Korea, China, Kuwait, Brazil, Ireland, New Zealand and other places.

•We are also releasing a new QPR training video that can be edited for multiple languages. Our aim is to build a global library of useable teaching tools that, if the 1.3 billion English users - most of whom non-English 1st language people, we simply access through our resource center, they can learn to teach and have the tools already in the box and sharpened.

World Suicide Prevention Day - Albania - Lidhje, komunikim, përkujdesje

Dita Botërore e Parandalimit të Vetëvrasjes: “Lidhje, komunikim, përkujdesje”

Në vitin 2003, 10 shtatori u vendor si Dita Botërore për Parandalimin e Vetëvrasjes.

“Lidhje, komunikim, përkujdesje” është slogani i këtij viti lidhur me Ditës Botërore për Parandalimin e Vetëvrasjes 2016. Këto tri fjalë qëndrojnë në thelb të parandalimin e vetëvrasjes.dita-boterore-e-parandalimit-te-vetevrasjes

Organizata Botërore e Shëndetësisë vlerëson se më shumë se 800.000 njerëz vdesin çdo vit për shkak të vetëvrasjes, që do të thotë një person çdo 40 sekonda . Deri në 25 herë më shumë , numërohen të jenë tentativat për vetëvrasje. Faktet dëshmojnë se ka shumë më shumë njerëz të cilët kanë tentuar vetëvrasje ose kanë qenë të afërt me dikë që ka tentuar një gjë të tillë. Dhe kjo hedh dritë mbi faktin se vetëvrasja është e parandalueshme.

Vendosja e lidhjes me ata që kanë tentuar vetëvrasjen ose kanë humbur një njeri të dashur për shkak të vetëvrasjes, është shumë e rëndësishme, për të çuar më tej përpjekjet për parandalimin e vetëvrasjes. Edhe pse vetëvrasja, si akt tek çdo individ është e ndryshme, ka disa mësime të përbashkëta për të pasur parasysh.

Ata që kanë qenë vetë në prag të vetëvrasjes mund të ndihmojnë të kuptohet bashkëveprim kompleks i ngjarjeve dhe rrethanave që i kanë çuar ata në atë moment, si dhe çfarë i shpëtoi ose ndihmoi ata të zgjedhin jetën.

Ata që kanë humbur dikë për shkak të vetëvrasjes, apo kanë ofruar mbështetje për dikë që ka tentuar vetëvrasje, mund të japin njohuri për mënyrën se si ata u zhvendosën përpara në udhëtimin e tyre të jetës.

Numri i madh i njerëzve të cilët janë të prekur nga vetëvrasja do ta bënte këtë rrjet edhe më funksional. Natyrisht, këto lidhje duhet të jenë të dyanshme. Ka shpesh raste kur ata që kanë tentuar vetëvrasje, dhe ata që mund të kenë humbur persona të dashur për shkak të vetëvrasjes, të kenë nevojë për mbështetje. Kujdesi i vazhdueshëm për ta, mund të jetë i nevojshëm.

Lidhja sociale, është parë se zvogëlon rrezikun për vetëvrasjeve, kështu që duke qenë atje për dikë, që në mënyrë jonormale është shkëputur, mund të jetë një akt që e shpëton jetë. Lidhja formale dhe joformale me ta, mund të ndihmojë për të parandaluar vetëvrasjen. Këtu kanë përgjegjësi të gjithë; individët, organizatat dhe komunitetet.

Komunikimi i hapur shpesh është jetësor nëse përpiqemi të parandalojmë vetëvrasjen. Në shumë komunitete, vetëvrasja mbahet e fshehtë, ose flitet për të vetëm si diçka tabu. Është e nevojshme të diskutohet për vetëvrasjen si për çdo çështje tjetër të shëndetit publik, gjë që do të ndihmonte për të larguar mitet në lidhje me të dhe për të zvogëluar stigmën përreth saj. Kjo nuk do të thotë që vetëvrasja të konsiderohet sjellje apo zgjidhje normale.

Duhet pasur në vëmendje që mesazhet që drejtohen për parandalimin e vetëvrasjes duhet të jenë shumë të kujdeshme pasi grupe të caktuara mund mund të mos e kuptojnë ashtu siç duhet këtë informacion. Mesazh të kujdesshme rreth vetëvrasjes dhe parandalimit e saj janë të nevojshme, duke qenë të vetëdijshëm se grupe të ndryshme të individëve mund të marrin dhe të interpretojnë këtë informacion në mënyra ndryshme.

Aftësimi i specialistëve që të komunikojnë në mënyrë efektive me ata që mund të jenë më vulnerabël për të kryer për të vetëvrasjes, është një pjesë e rëndësishme e strategjive për parandalimin e vetëvrasjes. Të flasësh për një temë të tillë shpesh është e vështirë, dhe këto llojet e bisedave jo pak herë janë shmangur. Kjo sepse është shumë e vështirë të flasësh në mënyrë të thjeshtë për këtë çështje. Personat të cilët kanë kaluar episode të tentativave për vetëvrasje, duke u përfshirë në biseda sensitive të cilat kanë nivelin e duhur të dhe dhembshurisë, rezulton goxha efektive në të ndihmuarin e tyre për te zgjedhur jetën. Mediat kanë gjithashtu një rol të rëndësishëm për të luajtur në parandalimin e vetëvrasjes. Disa lloje të raportimit të vetëvrasjes (për shembull tregime duke dhënë detaje, kanë rezultuar në shtimin e numrit të vetëvrasjeve. Të gjitha lidhjet dhe komunikimet nuk do të jenë efektive nëse nuk do të kishte kujdes. Politikë-bërësit duhet të vendosin kujdesin e nevojshëm për parandalimin e vetëvrasjes, për të bërë atë një përparësi, dhe për të financuar atë në një nivel që është në përputhje me rëndësinë e saj si një problem në shëndetin publik.

Mjekët, stafet psikosociale dhe ofruesit e tjerë të shërbimeve të kujdesit shëndetësor, duhet të bëjnë përpjeket të vazhdueshme në lidhje me parandalimin e vetëvrasjes. Po ashtu, komunitetet duhet të kujdesen për të dhënë mbështetjen e duhur për ata persona që janë në një rrezik të shtuar. Mbi të gjitha, duhet të sigurohemi që të gjithë të kujdesen për veten e tyre. Më 10 shtator, politikëbërësit, specialistët, personat e prekur nga vetëvrasja, duhet të përqendrojnë përpjekjet e tyre drejt një qëllimi të përbashkët, atë të parandalimit të vetëvrasjes.

Out Of the Shadows Walk

10th September 2016
6am
Lions Park Gosford Waterfront; Masons Parade Gosford
Lifeline's Out of the Shadows – national suicide prevention walks are held to coincide with World Suicide Prevention Day, September 10 every year.

The Out of the Shadows Walks raise awareness of suicide with the themes of reflection, recovery, hope and prevention.

The World Health Organization estimates that over 800,000 people die by suicide each year – that's one person every 40 seconds. Up to 25 times as many again make a suicide attempt. In Australia more than 2500 people die each year with latest figures (2014) telling us that 2,864 Australians took their own life. Research also tells us that some 65,000 think about attempting suicide each year. The tragic ripple effect means that there are many, many more people who have been bereaved by suicide or have been close to someone who has tried to take his or her own life, as well as those struggling to manage suicidal ideation.
Join us as we walk to raise awareness, remember those lost to suicide and unite in a commitment to prevent further deaths by suicide.

10 сентября – Всемирный день предотвращения самоубийств

Суицидальное поведение представляет собой актуальную этическую, моральную, социальную и медицинскую проблему. По данным ВОЗ в большинстве стран Европы и Северной Америки самоубийство входит в первую десятку причин смерти. Такая форма аутоагрессии занимает 6-е место среди причин потери трудоспособности в мире.


В 2012 году самоубийства составили 1,4% всех летальных исходов в мире, заняв 15-е место среди причин смерти. Это вторая по частоте причина кончины молодых людей в возрасте от 15 до 29 лет. А неудавшиеся попытки убить себя делаются гораздо чаще: на каждого погибшего приходится более 20 человек, попытавшихся, но не сумевших совершить суицид. По оценкам ВОЗ, в 2012 году в мире число смертей от самоубийств достигло 804 тыс., что составляет показатель частоты на уровне 11,4 случая на 100 тыс. населения — 15,0 для мужчин и 8,0 для женщин. С 2000 по 2012 год, несмотря на рост населения в мире, абсолютное число самоубийств сократилось примерно на 9%, с 883 тыс. до 804 тыс.

Профилактика суицидального поведения является одной из важнейших задач общества в целом и медицины в частности. В мае 2013 года на 66-й сессии Всемирной ассамблеи здравоохранения был принят первый в истории План действий в области психического здоровья ВОЗ, определивший межведомственный комплекс мероприятий, базирующихся на ключевых его положениях:

Самоубийства причиняют тяжелый ущерб. Каждый год от самоубийств умирают свыше 800 000 человек; это вторая по частоте причина смерти в возрасте от 15 до 29 лет. Имеются данные, свидетельствующие о том, что среди взрослого населения на каждого погибшего от самоубийства приходится свыше 20 человек, совершивших суицидальную попытку.
Самоубийства можно предотвращать. Залог эффективности национальных мер – наличие всесторонней многосекторальной стратегии предупреждения самоубийств. Ограничение доступа к средствам совершения самоубийства дает эффект. Эффективным путем предупреждения самоубийств и суицидальных попыток является ограничение доступа к наиболее распространенным средствам, включая ядохимикаты, огнестрельное оружие и некоторые лекарственные препараты. Службы оказания медицинской помощи должны включать профилактику суицида в качестве одного из важнейших компонентов предоставляемых услуг. Психические расстройства и вредное употребление алкоголя приводят к большому числу самоубийств по всему миру. Раннее выявление и эффективное ведение случаев – важнейшее условие обеспечения необходимой помощи тем, кто в ней нуждается.
Важнейшую роль в предотвращении самоубийств играют местные сообщества. Они могут обеспечивать социальную поддержку уязвимым лицам и участвовать в последующем оказании помощи, бороться со стигматизацией и оказывать помощь людям, потерявшим близких в результате самоубийства. Эффективность профилактических мероприятий может быть обеспечена только при комплексном подходе, объединяющем усилия специалистов разного профиля (медиков, психологов, социальных работников и др.). Распознавание суицидального поведения на этапе обращения пациента к врачу поликлиники или соматического стационара представляет собой актуальную и, в большинстве случаев, выполнимую задачу.

Самоубийство – это следствие социально-психологической дезадаптации личности в условиях переживаемого личностью микросоциального конфликта. Иными словами, его непосредственные причины обычно тесно связаны с проблемами в ближайшем окружении: лично-семейные конфликты, состояние психического здоровья, состояние физического здоровья, конфликты, связанные с антисоциальным поведением, конфликты в профессиональной или учебной сфере, материально-бытовые (финансовые) трудности. Следует учитывать также и факторы, коррелирующие с суицидальным риском: возраст 45 лет и старше, алкоголизм, возбуждение, насилие, агрессия в поведении, суицидальное поведение в прошлом, мужской пол, нежелание принимать помощь, затяжное течение предшествующего приступа депрессии, госпитализация и лечение в психиатрической больнице, потеря близкого человека или развод в недавнем прошлом, депрессия, соматическое заболевание, потеря работы/выход на пенсию, одиночество, потеря супруга/супруги, проживание в разводе.

Пусковым механизмом для развития дезадаптации, как правило, является конфликт. Дезадаптация проявляется снижением уровня социального функционирования и продуктивности, нарушением межличностных контактов, изменением поведения, вплоть до патологических его форм. Субъективно – широким диапазоном переживаний: от психологически понятных – тоска, горе, потеря смысла; до психопатологических – депрессия, бред, галлюцинации (характерно для лиц с психической патологией).

Предупреждение суицидального акта – это не просто способ спасти жизнь и здоровье человека, но и возможность защитить свою психику от разрушительного влияния чувства вины и сомнений в правомерности предпринятых мероприятий.

При разработке мер профилактики суицидов нужно иметь в виду следующее:

граница между истинным и демонстративно-шантажным суицидальным поведением в любом возрасте условна. Целесообразно все суицидальные мысли, тенденции, попытки человека рассматривать как реальную угрозу его жизни и здоровью;
чем меньше возраст больного, тем острее протекают депрессивные состояния с высокой суицидальной опасностью;
депрессия сама по себе не содержит суицидальных тенденций. Они появляются под действием конфликтных ситуаций, если не приняты адекватные меры профилактики, диагностики и лечения;
психологические переживания могут переоцениваться человеком, находящимся в тяжелой жизненной ситуации и недооцениваться близкими, родственниками;
в структуре депрессивного состояния есть симптомы, наличие которых должно насторожить специалиста;
при депрессивных состояниях всегда высок риск повторений, что требует индивидуальной профилактической работы;
как правило, суицидальные угрозы и намерения реализуются страдающими депрессивными расстройствами в истинные покушения на самоубийства.
Рекомендуется придерживаться следующих принципов и этапов кризисного вмешательства:

неотложная беседа с человеком, находящимся в кризисной ситуации;
правильно формулировать вопросы, спокойно и доходчиво расспрашивая о сути тревожащей ситуации и о том, какая помощь необходима;
проявление эмпатии;
временное исключение парасуицидента из стрессогенной ситуации;
высказывание: “у всех есть такие же проблемы” заставляют человека ощущать себя еще более ненужным и бесполезным, поэтому необходимо определить внутренний смысл кризиса;
постараться развеять “романтическо-трагедийный” ореол представлений о собственной смерти;
разъяснить, что подобные ситуации встречаются достаточно часто, но другие люди находят из них альтернативные выходы;
необходимо разработать план простых и конкретных мероприятий, направленных на оказание психологической помощи и активизирование собственных ресурсов человека, находящегося в тяжелой жизненной ситуации;
наладить контакт с родственниками и друзьями, которые могут положительно влиять на состояние парасуицидента;
при необходимости использовать медикаментозную терапию, назначаемую врачом-психиатром для коррекции тревожных, депрессивных и психотических состояний.
Осведомленность людей о сущности и причинах самоубийства, о способах его предупреждения и службах, оказывающих специализированную помощь, предопределяет наличие у человека, склонного к совершению самоубийства, альтернативного способа поведения. Для этого нужна целенаправленная просветительская работа по формированию антисуицидального общественного мнения, исключающего самоубийство, как способ решения проблем.

По результатам социологического исследования в Гродненской области большинство жителей доверяет медицинскому персоналу и готово обратиться за специализированной помощью при возникновении суицидальных стремлений.

Вышеизложенное свидетельствует о том, что во всех учреждениях здравоохранения с целью обеспечения доступности квалифицированной помощи людям, в том числе, детям, находящимся в трудных жизненных ситуациях (тяжелая утрата, развод, насилие, банкротство и иные причины социального характера, способные привести к суицидальному поведению), должны присутствовать в доступных для ознакомления местах (информационные стенды) информационные сведения о службе экстренной психологической помощи «Телефон доверия-170», о возможности анонимно получить специализированную помощь, в том числе, детям, в том числе, при самостоятельном обращении (www.mmc.grodno.by).

World Suicide Prevention Day - Bulgaria

10 септември – Световен ден за превенция на самоубийствата

Публикувано от: Иван Илиев

Всяка година Световната здравна организация с подкрепата на Международната асоциация по предотвратяване на самоубийствата провежда Световен ден за предотвратяване на самоубийствата. Целта е поощряване на дейността по предотвратяването им. Според данни на СЗО общият брой на починалите от суициди приближава милион годишно. Ако се запази тази тенденция, то към 2020 г. броят на самоубийствата по всяка вероятност ще нарасне 1,5 пъти.

Почти във всички случаи човек не се самоубива, защото изобщо и по принцип не му се живее, а защото не му се живее в дадената житейска ситуация или условия, от които той не вижда изход. Втората заблуда е, че се самоубиват хора само със слаби характери – напротив, силният характер съчетан с чувство за отговорност може да тласне човек да посегне на живота си, когато той е в разрез с дълбоки нравствени принципи.

Наблюдава се неравномерно разпределение на случаите на самоубийство в света, като Азия е водеща с 60% от всички самоубийства. Според СЗО само в Япония (30 хил. души годишно), Китай, Индия и Казахстан се извършват 40% от всички самоубийства в света. В Европа най-разпространени са самоубийствата в Русия, Словения, Унгария, Финландия и прибалтийските страни. Най-малък е процентът на самоубилите се в Латинска Америка и в ислямските страни.

Къде сме ние? Увеличен е броят на самоубийствата през лятото, като през последните четири години този пик се наблюдава през август. Това съобщава д-р Владимир Наков, експерт от сектор „Психично здраве” на Националния център по обществено здраве и анализи. По думите му на всеки 40 секунди в света 1 човек се самоубива. Той обясни, че голяма част от хората, които слагат край на живота си, са с психични проблеми, а други са изпаднали в криза и не са потърсили помощ. Според данните хората между 18 и 29 години най-често решават да се самоубият.

Данните показват, че през 2012 г. общият брой на опитите за самоубийство в страната ни е бил 3005, като 766 от тях са завършили с фатален изход. Експертите са категорични, че мотивите, които карат хората да прекратят житейския си път, са личните емоции и проблеми в семейството. Социалният статус на човек се нарежда едва на седмо-осмо място като водеща причина.

Cambodia


Phnom Penh, Kandal


A study by the Center for Child and Adolescent Mental Health (Caritas-CCAMH), Takhmau, Kandal province revealed the suicidal expressions among young people as high as in Nicaragua, a post-conflict country, similar to Cambodia. The young people in Cambodia expressed adrvse family circumstances, relationship issues, drug abuse, suicide-neutrality in Buddhism and double-edged media as the factors contributing to suicidal behavior among them. There is not enough awareness on this problem and access to help is wanting. In this background, the young people in Cambodia felt peer-based intervention in schools might help in prevention of suicidal behavior.

On Saturday the 10th, the staffs of the Center for Child and Adolescent Mental Health (Caritas-CCAMH) have organized a workshop at Meta House, Phnom Penh in collaboration with the department of psychology, Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP), Transcultural Psychosocial organization (TPO), the Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse (DMHSA) and mental health professionals to highlight the issue of suicide and the role of society, religion and media in suicide prevention in Cambodia from 4.00 to 6.00 pm. A documentary “Suicide prevention through Life Skills Education” will be screened at 7.00 pm followed by a panel discussion.

Featuring Canada's finest professionally trained musicians and performers, this concert will raise awareness of the mysterious barricades between mental illness and health, between the darkness of depression and the light of hope, between life and death. In partnership with the Canadian Association for Suicide Prevention and the Canadian Mental Health Association, this free concert will encourage public discourse about the prevalence of suicide and measures for suicide prevention, encourage the formation of community by those impacted by suicide, and raise funds for education and support of those at risk and those impacted by suicide. The entire concert event will be livestreamed.

Information regarding this project, including the sequence of thirteen concerts, cities, venues and performers, is available at www.mysteriousbarricades.org

Cold Lake, Alberta


Here in Cold Lake, the Bully Free Committee is organizing a candlelight vigil on Sept. 9 at 7 p.m. the Cold Lake and District FCSS parking lot.

“The 2016 theme is to Connect, Communicate and Care, so we hope to accomplish that on Friday night,” said Melanie Heroux, Cold Lake Bully Free Committee member.

“It’s connecting people in the community, those who have thought about suicide or attempted, for them to meet other people who’ve lost somebody to suicide. It’s an issue that needs to be talked about. There’s no easy way to talk about it and it’s a way to bring awareness and a way to honour those that have died by suicide.”

Along with the candlelight vigil, guest speakers will be sharing their personal story of how they lost their child to suicide.

“They are parents from the local area who lost a son, so they’ll be sharing their story,” said Heroux.

For those who cannot attend the vigil, Heroux encourages them to show their support by lighting a candle at home or wherever they are at 8 p.m.

Heroux hopes that community members will attend the candlelight vigil, or light their own candle at home and help to support one another and prevent suicide.

“The whole point of this event is to make people aware of it and to break the stigma that it’s OK to talk about it and that we need to start somewhere,” said Heroux.

TLC is bringing our communities together during Suicide Prevention Month in September.

When it comes to suicide prevention and positive mental health, every day matters. In honor of Benefit for Life Day, World Suicide Prevention Day and Suicide Prevention Month, we thank those that work in our communities and take action every day.

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), nearly 3000 people on average commit suicide daily. Suicide rates are at an all-time high. In addition, for every person who commits suicide, 20 or more others attempt to end their lives.

In honor of Benefit for Life Day, World Suicide Prevention Day and Suicide Prevention Month, The LifeLine Canada Foundation (TLC) will host the Benefit for Life gala at The Delta Grand Resort in Kelowna on September 9th. The Delta Grand Resort, Kelowna City Hall and the downtown Kelowna Sails will be lit up in purple from September 9th through September 10th.

Benefit for Life Day will also include an Online Campaign for youth and communities across Canada with an initiative to bring awareness to available tools, resources and programs.

Throughout September, Kelowna restaurants will bring the conversations of positive mental health to the forefront. TLC's "Food For Thought" initiative brings 30 top Kelowna Restaurants together in support of Suicide Prevention Month.

In honor of World Suicide Prevention Day, September 10, The Kelowna community shows solidarity with the "Leave Your Light On" campaign, encouraging the community to leave their exterior lights on between 8pm and 11pm in honor of those who feel lost, loved ones who have been lost or who have been saved and for grieving friends, family and communities.

Cutting through the myths about suicide and learning how to talk to those that are struggling with depression and anxiety is part of the key to stemming the tide of self-harm.

Please share this email with your coworkers, friends, family, neighbours and associates to come together and bring awareness to these initiatives.

For more details on The LifeLine Canada Foundation's initiatives, Food for Thought and available sponsorships please contact me directly.

The World Health Organization estimates that over 800,000 people die by suicide each year— that’s one person every 40 seconds. Up to 25 times as many again make a suicide attempt. The tragic ripple effect means that there are many, many more people who have been bereaved by suicide or have been close to someone who has tried to take his or her own life. And this is happening in spite of the fact that suicide is preventable.

« Marche et allume pour la prévention du suicide »

Le Centre de prévention du suicide de Québec et sa fondation organisent une marche à la chandelle à Limoilou à laquelle toute la population de la région est invitée. La marche, tenue à l'occasion de la 14e journée mondiale de la prévention du suicide, qui a lieu le 10 septembre 2016, se déroulera :

Date : le samedi 10 septembre prochain, à partir de 19 h; Lieu : sur le Sentier linéaire de la rivière Saint-Charles, dans le secteur Limoilou; Départ : Parc de l’Anse-à-Cartier, vis-à-vis la rue Ozanam;

Détails : gratuit pour tous – les 200 premiers participants recevront une chandelle électronique, une contribution volontaire permettra aux participants de soutenir la prévention du suicide;

Durée : (environ 3 km) entre 19 h et 20 h 30; après la marche, les participants seront conviés à la KEBABerie Limoilou Izgara, située au 1238, 1re Avenue, afin de conclure la soirée autour d'un café ou d’un thé qui sera offert gracieusement.

Objectifs : démontrer notre appui à la prévention du suicide, se souvenir d’êtres chers décédés par suicide, témoigner de notre soutien aux personnes endeuillées par suicide et promouvoir la demande d’aide pour toutes les personnes qui sont affectées par le suicide.

Cette marche est inspirée du thème local de la journée mondiale de prévention du suicide 2016, qui est : « Allumés pour la prévention du suicide ». La symbolique de la marche à la chandelle évoque l'aspect collectif de la prévention du suicide, ainsi que l'importance de demeurer vigilant et mobilisé à l'égard de cet enjeu. Elle reflète aussi l'espoir qu'il est primordial d'entretenir.

De plus, le thème « Allume » au centre de la Journée mondiale de la prévention du suicide 2016 fait écho au site « allume.org », qui a été mis en ligne par le CPSQ en 2015. Cet outil de prévention du suicide en ligne vise à sensibiliser en amont la clientèle masculine, et plus spécifiquement les hommes âgés entre 35 et 49 ans, qui représentent un pan de la population particulièrement touché par le suicide. Le suicide, c’est évitable !

World Suicide Prevention Day - Nikao cook islands YOU MATTER

Kia Orana

We are writing on behalf of the Cook Islands National Youth Council (CINYC) and we would would like to share with you our upcoming Youth Event.

CINYC have been granted funding from the Ministry of Health to do some work around Youth Suicide prevention. Furthermore, in light of the recent deaths in country, we believe that this makes this event all the more vital to assist with this issue that seems to be increasing amongst our Cook Islands youth.

The council have come up with a Youth Empowerment YOU MATTER Performing Arts Challenge. We currently have 4 high schools participating in the event. The objective of this event is to Raise awareness in the community (esp amongst youth) and promote greater mobilisation of support for the promotion of suicide prevention. In addition, it will be aimed at profiling the various services on the island to assist with 'youth' suicide prevention.

This event will be held on September the 10th as this is internationally recognized as World suicide prevention day.

We would like to thank you for letting us be a part of the global day to remember those who have lost thri lives and those that work dilligently to prevent this from happening.

Svjetski dan prevencije samoubojstava

10. rujna 2016.

„Poveži se. Komuniciraj. Brini.“


Svjetski dan prevencije samoubojstava obilježava se svake godine 10. rujna na inicijativu Međunarodnog udruženja za prevenciju samoubojstava (International Association for Suicide Prevention – IASP) i u suradnji sa Svjetskom zdravstvenom organizacijom (World Health Organisation – WHO) u cilju podizanja svjesnosti o potrebi i obvezi aktivnosti na prevenciji samoubojstava na globalnoj razini.

Obilježavanje Svjetskog dana prevencije samoubojstava započelo je 2003. godine. Svrha ove inicijative je širenje znanja o problemu samoubojstava, podržavanje istraživanja, prosljeđivanje informacija, smanjenje stigme te poticanje na spoznaju da se samoubojstvo može spriječiti.

Svjetska zdravstvena organizacija procjenjuje da više od 800 tisuća ljudi godišnje u svijetu počini samoubojstvo odnosno svakih 40 sekundi jedna osoba izgubi život zbog samoubojstva. Samoubojstva čine više od polovine nasilnih smrti u svijetu, više nego sve smrti zbog ratova i ubojstava. Iako su samoubojstva jedan od vodećih uzroka smrti osoba u dobi od 15-34 godine, većina samoubojstava registrira se u dobi iznad 60 godina.

Ove se godine Svjetski dan prevencije samoubojstava obilježava pod sloganom „Poveži se. Komuniciraj. Brini.“ Ove riječi simboliziraju srž prevencije samoubojstava.

Povezivanje s osobama koje su pogođene samoubojstvom bliske osobe ili s osobama koje imaju iskustvo suicidalnog ponašanja ključno je u prevenciji samoubojstava. Budite uz osobu koja se otuđila od okoline i usmjerite je na podršku koja joj je potrebna.

Osnaživanje ljudi kako bi mogli učinkovito pristupiti i komunicirati s osobama koje pokazuju rizik od samoubojstva ima važnu ulogu u prevenciji. Otvoreno govorite o samoubojstvu kako biste razbili mitove koji ga okružuju. Oprezno prikažite temu samoubojstava i budite oprezni s porukama koje šaljete.

Vlade i pružatelji usluga trebaju prevenciju samoubojstava staviti na listu prioriteta. Zajednice imaju ključnu ulogu u brizi za vulnerabilne skupine i osobe u rizičnoj skupini za samoubojstvo. Svi se zajedno trebamo više potruditi i odvojiti vrijeme za brigu o sebi samima i o osobama iz naše okoline.

Suicide Prevention Day: The first results of the new program and the prison system

სუიციდის პრევენციის მსოფლიო დღე: ახალი პროგრამა და პირველი შედეგები სასჯელაღსრულების სისტემაში

10 სექტემბერი სუიციდის პრევენციის მსოფლიო დღეა. ჯანდაცვის მსოფლიო ორგანიზაცია მოუწოდებს სახელმწიფოებს, რომ არ დაიშურონ ძალისხმევა, რათა 2020 წლისთვის სუიციდის მაჩვენებელი 10%-ით შეამცირონ. მსოფლიო კამპანიის ფარგლებში სასჯელაღსრულებისა და პრობაციის სამინისტრომ სუიციდის პრევენციის მიმართულებით პირველი შედეგები შეაჯამა. 10 სექტემბერი სუიციდის პრევენციის მსოფლიო დღეა. ჯანდაცვის მსოფლიო ორგანიზაცია მოუწოდებს სახელმწიფოებს, რომ არ დაიშურონ ძალისხმევა, რათა 2020 წლისთვის სუიციდის მაჩვენებელი 10%-ით შეამცირონ.

მსოფლიო კამპანიის ფარგლებში სასჯელაღსრულებისა და პრობაციის სამინისტრომ სუიციდის პრევენციის მიმართულებით პირველი შედეგები შეაჯამა.

სუიციდის პრევენციის პროგრამა, რომლის განხორციელებაც სასჯელაღსრულების და პრობაციის სამინისტრომ 2013 წლის დეკემბრიდან დაიწყო, უკვე 5 დაწესებულებას ფარავს, ხოლო პროგრამის გუნდმა, რომელშიც ფსიქოლოგები, ფსიქიატრები, სოციალური მუშაკები და ექიმები, ასევე რეჟიმისა და უსაფრთხოების თანამშრომლები შედიან, 38 ადამიანის დახმარება შეძლო, რომელთაც სუიციდის მაღალი რისკი და წარსულში თვითმკვლელობის არაერთი მცდელობა ჰქონდათ. მათთან მუშაობა სუიციდის რისკის შემცირებით ან განეიტრალებით დასრულდა.

ამჟამად, პროგრამაში კიდევ 39 პატიმარია ჩართული, რომელთანაც მულტიდისციპლინური მუშაობა მიმდინარეობს. მათგან 5 არასრულწლოვანია.

სასჯელაღსრულებისა და პრობაციის მინისტრის მოადგილემ არჩილ თალაკვაძემ აღნიშნა, რომ სასჯელაღსრულების სისტემაში სუიციდის პროგრამის პირველი შედეგები ძალზე იმედისმომცემია. ამ ტიპის პროგრამებს მსოფლიოს მასშტაბით აბსოლუტური შედეგი არსად არ აქვს, მაგრამ დახმარება, რომელსაც უწევენ პროგრამაში ჩართულ მსჯავრდებულებს, სუიციდის განმეორების რისკს მნიშვნელოვნად ამცირებს. „მულტიდისციპლინური გუნდის დახმარებით მოხერხდა პროგრამაში ჩართული 77 ადამიანის კრიზისიდან გამოყვანა, რომელთაგან 9 არასრულწლოვანი იყო. სუიციდის პერევენციის პროგრამა მალე მთელი სასჯელაღსრულების სისტემის მასშტაბით გაფართოვდება“, _ განაცხადა არჩილ თალაკვაძემ.

საქართველოში ევროკავშირის დელეგაციის ხელმძღვანელის მოადგილის ბორის იაროშევიჩის თქმით, „ ძალიან მნიშვნელოვანია, რომ სასჯელაღსრულებისა და პრობაციის სამინისტროსთან ერთად ჩვენ ვახორციელებთ საპილოტე პროექტს, რომლის მიზანიც თვითმკვლელობის პრევენციაა. ჩვენი მიზანია, რომ ეს პროექტი საქართველოს ყველა სასჯელაღსრულების დაწესებულებაში განხორციელდეს და მოხარულები ვართ, რომ ამ ძალისხმევაში სამინისტრო მხარს გვიჭერს“.

2014 წელს სუიციდის პრევენციის მსოფლიო დღე სასჯელაღსრულების სისტემაში პირველად აღინიშნა. ზოგადად ცნობილია, რომ სასჯელაღსრულების სისტემებში პატიმრებს შორის სუიციდის რისკი 8-10-ჯერ მაღალია, ზოგად მოსახლეობასთან შედარებით.

ჯანდაცვის მსოფლიო ორგანიზაციის მონაცემებით ყოველწლიურად მსოფლიოში 800 000-ზე მეტი ადამიანი ასრულებს სიცოცხლეს თვითმკვლელობით, რაც აღემატება მკვლელობების და საომარ კონფლიქტებში გარდაცვლილთა ჯამურ მაჩვენებელს.

სუიციდის პრევენციის პროგრამა ევროკავშირის, ევროსაბჭოს და ფონდის „გლობალური ინიციატივა ფსიქიატრიაში“ დახმარებით შემუშავდა.

2016. szeptember 10. Az Öngyilkosság Megelőzés Világnapja.

A WHO adatai szerint évente közel 1 millió ember hal meg öngyilkosságban. Ez azt jelenti, hogy minden 40. másodpercben valaki véget vet az életének. 2014-es adatok szerint Magyarországon évente 20.000 öngyilkossági kísérletből 2093-an halnak meg. Ennél még többen vannak azok, akik öngyilkosságon gondolkodnak. Mindez azt jelenti, hogy egy olyan problémáról van szó, amely közvetlenül vagy közvetve nagyon sok embert érint. És mindez annak ellenére van így, hogy az öngyilkosság megelőzhető.

Az idei Öngyilkosság Megelőzés Világnapjának (World Suicide Prevention Day, #WSPD) témája a 'kapcsolat', 'kommunikáció', 'figyelem'. Ez a három szó az öngyilkosság megelőzés központi gondolatát is tükrözi.

Kapcsolat
A túlélők, vagyis az öngyilkosságban meghalt hozzátartozókat, barátokat gyászolók, valamint az öngyilkossági érzésekkel küzdők támogatása, a velük való kapcsolattartás kulcsfontosságú része az öngyilkosság megelőzésének. Bár minden öngyilkosság különböző, azért vannak olyan általánosságok, amelyek segítenek az öngyilkosság megelőzésében. Azok, akik maguk is éltek már át öngyilkossági krízist, segíthetnek abban, hogy jobban megérthessük azon események, helyzetek, körülmények komplex összetételét, amelyek öngyilkossági gondolatokhoz vezethetnek, illetve amelyek megmentették őket vagy segítettek megküzdeni a problémákkal. A társas kapcsolatok csökkentik az öngyilkosság rizikóját, ezért életet menthet, ha erősítjük a kapcsolatot valakivel, aki magányos, izolálódott. A kapcsolatok minden formája, legyen az formális, intézményes, vagy informális, személyes, segíti az öngyilkosság megelőzését.

Kommunikáció
Az öngyilkosság elleni harcban kulcsfontosságú a nyílt kommunikáció. Sok közösségben az öngyilkosság tabu téma vagy csak suttogva lehet róla beszélni. Ha el szeretnénk oszlatni az öngyilkossággal kapcsolatos téves hiedelmeket és csökkenteni szeretnénk a stigmákat, akkor olyan nyíltan kell beszélnünk az öngyilkosságról, mint bármilyen más népegészségügyi problémáról. Természetesen mindezt körültekintően kell tennünk; nem szabad az öngyilkosságot normalizálni sem.

Bármilyen öngyilkosság megelőzési stratégia lényeges eleme az öngyilkossággal kapcsolatos megfelelő kommunikáció segítése. Ez különösen fontos akkor, ha olyan valakivel beszélünk, aki veszélyeztetett. Öngyilkosságról beszélni valakivel bárki számára megterhelő lehet. Ugyanakkor van néhány egyszerű tipp arra vonatkozóan, hogy miként kezdjünk bele egy ilyen beszélgetésbe. Ezek közül a legfontosabb az empátia és az ítélkezéstől mentes odafigyelés, meghallgatás. Az öngyilkossági krízisen átesettek gyakran arról számolnak be, hogy egy-egy figyelmes, odaforduló baráti beszélgetés sokat segített nekik a felépülésükben.

Az öngyilkosság megelőzés kommunikációjában fontos szerep jut a médiának. Bizonyos kifejezések, szóhasználatok - a tapasztalatok szerint - maguk után vonhatják az öngyilkosságok számának növekedését. Ugyanakkor szakemberek hazánkban is kidolgoztak olyan irányelveket a média számára, amelyek figyelembevétele segíti az öngyilkosságok megelőzését.

Figyelem
Azonban mind a kapcsolat, mind a megfelelő kommunikáció hatástalan akkor, ha hiányzik a törődés. Fontos, hogy a törvényhozók, a prevenciós programok megalkotói elég nagy figyelmet fordítsanak az öngyilkosság megelőzésre. Lényeges az is, hogy az egészségügyben dolgozó szakemberek, klinikusok, gondozók szintén törődjenek a jelenséggel, és kiemelkedően fontosnak érezzék az öngyilkosság megelőzését.

Végső soron pedig mindannyiunknak szükségünk van arra, hogy odafigyeljünk és törődjünk magunkkal, a saját lelki egészségünkkel. És oda kell figyelnünk másokra is, azokra, akik valamilyen krízist élnek át éppen, szenvednek valamitől, vagy megrekedtek egy állapotban. Lehetőséget kell adnunk nekik, hogy elmondják problémáikat, történetüket. Ezen a téren sokat tanulhatunk azoktól, akik már átéltek öngyilkossági krízist.

Seminar on Self-harm and Suicide and Evening Program at the Cathedral in Reykjavik

Alþjóðadagur sjálfsvígsforvarna 2016

Samráðshópur um Alþjóðlegan forvarnardag sjálfsvíga efnir til opins málþings um forvarnir gegn sjálfsskaða og sjálfsvígum í húsakynnum Geðhjálpar við Borgartún 30 þann 9. september næstkomandi frá kl. 15 til 16.45.

Kyrrðarstundir með hugvekju og tónlist verða haldnar í Dómkirkjunni í Reykjavík, Akureyrarkirkju, Egilsstaðakirkju og Keflavíkurkirkju í tilefni dagsins daginn eftir eða laugardaginn 10. september kl. 20.00.

Með yfirskrift málþingsins Öll sem eitt er vísað til einkunnarorða forvarnardagsins að þessu sinni tengjum, miðlum og hlúum að hvert öðru um leið og áhersla er lögð á mikilvægi samvinnu í forvarnarstarfi gegn sjálfsskaða og sjálfsvígum.

Dagskráin hefst með frumsýningu gagnvirks myndbands undir merkjum Útmeð'a forvarnarverkefnisins Geðhjálpar og Hjálparsíma Rauða krossins 1717. Með yfirskrift verkefnisins er ungt fólk hvatt til að tjá sig um erfiðar tilfinningar sínar til að bæta líðan sína ásamt því að draga úr hættu á sjálfsskaða og sjálfsvígshugsunum.

Því næst mun Tómas Kristjánsson, sálfræðingur, fjalla um forvarnir gegn sjálfsskaða og sjálfsvígum undir yfirskriftinni Með farangurinn á bakinum ásamt því að kynna nýjan forvarnarvef Útmeð'a.

World Suicide Prevention Day - Aktau

Врач-психиатр рассказал пожарным Актау о профилактике суицида

Как беречь себя от стрессов и не думать о суициде - эту тему обсудили в службе пожаротушения и аварийно-спасательных работ ДЧС Мангистауской области. Мероприятие так и называлось «Береги себя», его провел врач-психиатр Нуракын Алимов, сообщили в пресс-службе спасательного ведомства.

Врач-психиатр, заведующий мужским отделением областного психоневрологического диспансера Нуракын Алимов, рассказал о суицидальном поведении и его профилактике. Он подчеркнул, что предупреждение суицида представляет собой непростую, но выполнимую комплексную задачу, решение которой возможно при взаимодействии различных структур общества.

- Часто люди совершают суицид в возрасте от 15 до 44 лет. Однако, специалистов тревожит то, что во всем мире за прошедшие 45 лет количество самоубийств увеличилось на 60% и с годами число суицидов может возрасти. По данным Международной организации здравоохранения, если в год суицид совершают около миллиона людей, то восемь тысяч из них - казахстанцы. Если во всем мире каждые 40 секунд происходит одно самоубийство, то почти каждый час в Казахстане кто-то добровольно расстается с жизнью, - приводит статистику Нуракын Алимов.

Психологи считают, что если мужчина решительно настроен на самоубийство, то в основном он доводит дело до конца. Женщины в большинстве случаев не собираются убивать себя, лишь используют попытки суицида для шантажа или же привлечения к себе внимания. Поэтому по статистике на один случай мужского суицида приходится пять женских попыток самоубийства.

- Причины самоубийств могут быть различными. Однако сейчас в Казахстане широко известны случаи, когда люди решаются на суицид уже по политическим и экономическим мотивам, - отмечает врач.

Своими наблюдениями и опытом поделилась также психолог, капитан гражданской защиты Дарига Жолдыбаева. Она отметила, что знание социальных и психологических предвестников суицида может помочь понять и предотвратить его.

- Проведение психологических мероприятий, раскрывающих сущность суицидального поведения людей, является одной из эффективных форм профилактической работы, направленной не только на предотвращение самоубийств, но и на обучение сотрудников к действиям в ситуациях обнаружения предсуицидов, - сказали в службе пожаротушения.

1) The Ministry of Health has planned an event at Mathari National Teaching and Referral Hospital (the largest provider for mental health services in Kenya) on 9th September 2016. This is in Nairobi - the capital city. Befrienders Kenya is a part of this event which will be attended by senior officials in the mental health sector. The highlight of this event will be the launch of the newly introduced Suicide Prevention Ribbon. The session will be introduced and presided over by Befrienders Kenya and the Ribbon launched by the Director of Mental Health. There will be media coverage for the event and all those present get the ribbons.

2) Befrienders Kenya is organizing an awareness forum on 10th September. The forum brings together people who are bereaved or affected by suicide as well as organizations in areas related to suicide and suicide prevention. The idea is to enable such persons get connected to where they can get help and care. Activities for the day include sharing of individual real life experiences/testimonies, input from medical experts, a motivational speaker to give hope and encourage the affected persons, lighting of candles to remember those who have died through suicide and also be in solidarity with those who have lost loved ones through suicide. A key part of this event is the message from the IASP President. There will also be a representative from the Department of Mental Services.

In both events plans are in place to have the media, have display tables with materials from both Befrienders Kenya and IASP on the WSPD including banners, brochures and leaflets.

Savižudybių prevencijos dieną – dviračių žygis

Šeštadienį, rugsėjo 10-ąją minima Pasaulinė savižudybių prevencijos diena. Ji skirta atkreipti dėmesį į didelį savižudybių skaičių ir ieškoti išeičių, kaip užkirsti tam kelią. Šią dieną klaipėdiečiai paminėjo leisdamiesi į žygį dviračiais.

Į kvietimą dalyvauti šioje akcijoje atsiliepė maždaug pusšimtis klaipėdiečių. Kai kurie į šį žygį leidosi su šeimomis. Nuo prekybos centro, esančio pietinėje miesto dalyje, dviratininkų kolona dviračių takais pajudėjo link „Studlendo“.

Šios dienos vakarą žmonės taip pat raginami languose uždegti žvakę, skirtą atminti tiems, kurie pasitraukė iš gyvenimo.

Pasaulio sveikatos organizacijos duomenimis, kasmet nusižudo apie milijoną žmonių. Lietuva - viena iš šalių, kurioje savižudybės skaičius itin didelis. Per metus mūsų šalyje iš gyvenimo pasitraukia apie 1000 žmonių. Dauguma jų – kaimo gyventojai, vyrai.

Pagal statistiką, kas 40 sekundžių pasaulyje nusižudo vienas žmogus. Kas 3 sekundės kas nors bando nusižudyti. Kiekviena savižudybė skaudžiai paveikia bent 6 žmones.

Tyrimai rodo, kad net 75 procentų savižudžių apie ketinimą nusižudyti prasitaria šeimos nariams ar draugams, tad labai svarbu išklausyti artimą žmogų ir laiku padėti jam spręsti problemas.

Ramos Arizpe


El Comité Municipal del PRI, organizará una plática de prevención de suicidios, con el objetivo de que la ciudadanía se informe y sensibilice ante esta problemática en el Día Mundial de Prevención al Suicidio, en septiembre.

César Flores Jiménez, presidente del partido, y Adelaida Gutiérrez, secretaria general, manifestaron la preocupación del Comité por abordar el tema, ya que el suicidio se coloca como la segunda causa de muerte de jóvenes en el país.

“Tenemos proyectada una plática de sensibilización, orientación e identificación de casos de suicidio, el 10 de septiembre. En este proceso vamos conducirnos en el tema de la prevención, con el propósito de atender esta difícil causa”, explicó Flores Jiménez.

Aseguró que el objetivo de esta plática, es contribuir a las actividades del Día Mundial de la Prevención del Suicidio, así como explicar a la ciudadanía sobre qué hacer cuando se conoce a alguien que atraviesa una situación de este tipo.

“Queremos que la ciudadanía esté consciente de esta situación y que sepa cómo identificar cuando una persona requiere un apoyo para evitar alguna tragedia. Estará dedicada especialmente a jóvenes, pero la invitación es a todo público”.

“No estamos exentos de estas situaciones que se manifiestan en todo tipo de población, pero estos temas pretenden concientizar a la sociedad y tener el conocimiento de lo que se puede hacer. Vale la pena llevar a cabo estas pláticas con tal de quitar la intención de cometer esta acción”, agregó Adelaida Gutiérrez.

Por otra parte, el dirigente priista informó que siguen vigentes los programas de apoyo para estudiantes, con la venta de cuadernos a bajo costo.

“Aún tenemos el apoyo a los estudiantes para que obtengan un paquete económico de cuadernos. Están a la venta en 10 pesos, o bien, en paquetes de 50 pesos con cinco cuadernos”, señaló.

Resaltó que en sectores vulnerables de la ciudad, estos mismos paquetes estarán a mitad de precio.

“Aún es tiempo de que vengan al Comité por su apoyo. Buscamos este beneficio directo sobre su económica, para que le dinero no sea un impedimento para estudiar” finalizó.

Suicidio, una tragedia evitable

Hay alertas y síntomas que se deben tener en cuenta. La problemática va en crecimiento.

El suicidio se constituye como una de las principales problemáticas epidemiológicas de salud mental y requiere la atención de los diversos actores sociales para poder prevenirlo. Según destacan las autoridades sanitarias, estos hechos tan dolorosos que, además, tienen su mayor incidencia entre los más jóvenes, muchas veces pueden ser evitados.

En lo que va del año en San Francisco hubo, según datos oficiales, unos quince casos de suicidios, siendo el mes de junio el que más sumó: un total de nueve.

Cabe destacar, que la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS), instauró al día 10 de Septiembre como el Día Mundial de la Prevención del Suicidio.

Buscando respuestas

La licenciada en Psicología Agustina Barbero (MP-10059) explicó a El Periódico que existen factores que pueden provocar un suicidio y están asociados a comportamientos como trastornos de personalidad, depresión, consumo de sustancias psicoactivas, estrés postraumático, esquizofrenia y cuestiones de vida estresantes (problemática a nivel financiero o relaciones interpersonales) que pueden generar una pérdida de esperanza.

Barbero integra el espacio “Más Redes Más Vida”, que trabaja en la prevención de muertes violentas. La profesional consideró que existe un tiempo entre el primer pensamiento suicidad y la ejecución del mismo: “Se puede pensar a la duración del proceso suicida como el período de tiempo del que se dispone para intervenir terapéuticamente y cuya consideración resulta clave en el éxito de las estrategias de prevención”.

Consultada sobre la prevención que debe partir de los organismos públicos, Barbero manifestó que “deben estar encuadrados con el objetivo de fomentar en la población el autocuidado y la protección de estilos de vida y entornos saludables, involucrando a los distintos sectores sociales y a la comunidad”. Además agregó que “es importante en este sentido que se pueda llevar a cabo en cualquier programa de prevención una escuela para padres, orientada en la escucha activa de ellos hacia sus hijos. También búsqueda de ayuda profesional y compromiso”.

Suicidio-4
ALERTAS
Escuchar al otro, estar atentos ante las señales de malestar y no minimizarlas, así como pedir ayuda profesional si es necesario, son algunas de las cosas que pueden ayudar a evitar estas muertes.

SÍNTOMAS
Cambios en el humor habitual, cambios en la conducta, mutismo, llanto, retraimiento o aislamiento, autoagresiones, insomnio persistente, ansiedad generalizada o gran desasosiego, negativa a alimentarse, verbalización sobre el suicidio o la muerte, son algunos de los indicadores que encienden una luz de alerta y ante los cuales el entorno no debería ser indiferente.

World Suicide Prevention Day - Bussum - Samen voor leven

Every year approximately 1800 people take their own lives in the Netherlands. This has a huge impact on the bereaved, but professionals also have to deal with the effects and consequences of these suicides in a work-related context, either directly or indirectly. We want to share insights into the role of community’s and into working together to prevent this loss of life. Because cooperation makes all the difference.

Two days before World Suicide Prevention Day, on Thursday 8 September, 113Online (online help organization), ProRail (Dutch Railway infrastructure manager) and NS (Dutch Railways) have organized an invitational suicide prevention conference entitled 'Together for life.' On this day 200 administrators, managers, care professionals, rescue workers, railway professionals and journalists share the latest insights on prevention and how to act on it. It will be a mix of listening, acting and sharing knowledge. Various examples and roles will be presented. Chairman of the day Inge Diepman will hand the microphone to experts and inspiring speakers such as sportsman Erben Wennemars and other professionals.

There is room for interaction and for the pitfalls and thresholds of suicide prevention. You will become inspired how you can prevent suicide from the your organization's point of view.

In the build up to World Suicide Prevention Day on 10 September 2016, we celebrate this year's theme: Connect, Communication, Care. This video is about one of the Waka Hourua and Le Va community funded projects called ‘League of Heroes’ led by Southseas Healthcare. ‘U ALGUDS’ is a familiar phrase used in South Auckland as well a means to encourage club players to check in on their mates. The project targeted all age grades within the Scorpions Rugby League club and their families highlighting the concept of the 3 Hs:

‘How to’ (talk about suicide in a safe and caring way) igniting ‘Hope’ and ‘Help’ (who to access for support).

10 сентября – Всемирный День предотвращения самоубийств.

Ежегодно 10 сентября по инициативе Международной ассоциации по предотвращению самоубийств (International Association for Suicide Prevention - IASP) под патронажем Всемирной организации здравоохранения (ВОЗ) отмечается Всемирный день предотвращения самоубийств (World Suicide Prevention Day), с целью укрепления приверженности и поощрения деятельности по предотвращению самоубийств во всем мире. Тема этого дня в 2016 году – «Объединяйтесь. Общайтесь открыто. Заботьтесь друг о друге» («Connect. Communicate. Care»). Международная ассоциация предотвращения самоубийств в сотрудничестве с ВОЗ призывают общественность и власти проводить в этот день мероприятия и акции по укреплению чувства ответственности за спасение жизни людей, которые могут быть потеряны в результате суицида.

Самоубийства – важная проблема здоровья общества. По данным ВОЗ ежегодно более 800 000 человек лишают себя жизни, а значительно большее число людей совершают попытки самоубийства. Каждое самоубийство — это трагедия, которая воздействует на семьи, общины и целые страны, оказывая долгосрочное воздействие на живущих. Также самоубийства – одна из важнейших проблем общественного здравоохранения в любой стране и в любом обществе во всем мире. Неожиданные смерти, в первую очередь, людей молодого возраста, влекут тяжелейшие экономические, социальные и психологические последствия для индивидуумов, семей и стран. Несмотря на расширение исследований и получение все новых знаний о самоубийствах и их профилактике, часто люди, в том числе дети и подростки, не ищут помощи или остаются наедине с самими собой.

Важным фактором, влияющим на самоубийства, является запрещенная информация, распространяемая в сети «Интернет». В настоящее время люди, особенно в подростковом возрасте, активно пользуясь информационно-коммуникационной сетью «Интернет», имеют неограниченный доступ к медиаресурсам и той информации, которая может нанести вред их здоровью и развитию. Именно поэтому организация безопасного Интернет пространства и обеспечение информационно-психологической безопасности детей и подростков одна из важных государственных задач.

Федеральная служба по надзору в сфере защиты прав потребителей и благополучия человека (Роспотребнадзор) в рамках Федерального закона от 27.07. 2006 г. N 149-ФЗ "Об информации, информационных технологиях и о защите информации" и постановления Правительства Российской Федерации от 26.10.2012 №1101 «О единой автоматизированной информационной системе «Единый реестр доменных имен, указателей страниц сайтов в информационно-телекоммуникационной сети «Интернет» и сетевых адресов, позволяющих идентифицировать сайты в информационно-коммуникационной сети «Интернет», содержащие информацию, распространение которой в Российской Федерации запрещено», ведет постоянную работу по принятию решений, являющихся основанием для ограничения доступа к информации и материалам, содержащихся в сети «Интернет» о способах самоубийства и призывах к его совершению.

По данным Федеральной службы по надзору в сфере защиты прав потребителей и благополучия человека в2016 г. Роспотребнадзором с привлечением квалифицированных экспертов в области суицидологи и информационной безопасности разработаны «Рекомендации по распространению в СМИ информации о случаях самоубийства», которые были рекомендованы представителям профессионального журналистского сообщества к использованию при подготовке материалов (новостей, статей, выпусков ТВ передач и других) на тему самоубийства. За период с 1 ноября 2012 г. по 1 сентября 2016 г. Роспотребнадзором проведена экспертиза более 11 000 ссылок на страницы сайтов в информационно-коммуникационной сети «Интернет» на предмет наличия информации о способах совершения самоубийства, а также призывов к его осуществлению, из них в 98% случаев были приняты решения о наличии на страницах сайтов информации, запрещенной к распространению в Российской Федерации. Также налажено конструктивное взаимодействие с представителями правоохранительных органов по оперативному обмену информацией о сообществах и группах, пропагандирующих суицидальное поведение среди детей и подростков в информационно-коммуникационной сети «Интернет».

Важнейшим фактором успешного предупреждения суицидов является консолидация усилий гражданского общества, органов власти и СМИ, нацеленная на сокращение доступа к информации о средствах самоубийства. ВОЗ и другие партнеры выступают не только за предотвращение самоубийств, но и в защиту надлежащего лечения и последующего ухода за людьми, предпринявшими попытку суицида, а также более взвешенного освещения самоубийств в СМИ.

Не всегда самоубийства можно предотвратить, но организовать и проводить профилактические мероприятия необходимо. Имеется ряд мер, которые могут быть приняты для снижения риска, в том числе:

- уменьшение доступа к средствам самоубийства (пестициды, лекарственные препараты, оружие);

- лечение людей с психическими расстройствами (особенно тех, кто страдает депрессиями, алкоголизмом и шизофренией);

- последующее наблюдение за людьми, совершившими попытку самоубийства;

- ответственный подход СМИ к представлению информации;

- подготовка работников по оказанию первичной медико-санитарной помощи.

Среди защитных факторов, помогающих сохранить жизнь, следует отметить следующие:

• Поддержка семьи, друзей, других важных в жизни человека людей

• Участие в жизни общества

• Приносящая удовлетворение жизнь в обществе

• Социальная интеграция, например, через рабочую деятельность, конструктивное использование досуга

• Наличие доступа к услугам по охране психического здоровья

Каждый человек - личность, необходимо однажды раз и навсегда решить, что жизнь это величайшее благо, никто не знает, что будет в последующий момент, возможно, случится именно то, без чего жизнь кажется невыносимой.

Что может сделать каждый из нас?Быть внимательным к своим близким. Для того нам и дана речь, чтоб поддержать нуждающихся в трудную минуту. Помните: слово может возродить к жизни.

Всемирный день предотвращения суицида, по замыслу представителей Международной ассоциации по предотвращению самоубийств, призван привлечь внимание властей и общественности к этой проблеме.Только совместные усилия всех заинтересованных органов и организаций, а также гражданского общества помогут предотвратить самоубийства, в том числе среди детей и подростков.

Нешто убија тело и душу људи

Самоубиства су део сурове свакодневице, личне и породичне трагедије које друштво погађају већ годинама. У протеклих неколико недеља много грађана

Србије је себи одузело живот. Разлози и мотиви, барем они који се помињу као узрочник дизања руке на себе, су разни: од очаја због немаштине, неузвраћене љубави, брачних свађа, депресије, неиспуњених очекивања, до алкохолизма, употребе дрога, изложености агресији... Тешко да ико зна прави одговор које се све “коцкице” сложе па неко одлучи да себи оконча живот.

Процењује се да сваког дана у Србији изврши се од четири до шест самоубистава. Чине се на различите начине: скоком са моста, зграда, вешањем, пиштољем, скакањем под воз или камион, намерним предозирањем, таблетама... Србија је на првом месту на европској листи по броју самоубистава и чак 11. на светској. Стопа суицидних смртности у нашој земљи је 19,5 на 100.000 становника. Нарочито је забрињавајуће стање у Војводини, у којој је стопа самоубистава у 2011.години била 30 на 100.000 становника, и наставила је да буде висока , уз неколико процената смањења у последњим годинама.

Психолози уверавају да је највећи проблем економско стање у самој држави, али и недостатак перспективе, што је најчешћи разлог младима да себи одузму живот. С друге стране, има и оних који тврде да сиромаштво и немаштина нису директни разлози за самоубиство већ депресија која је резултат беспарице и сиромаштва. Као главни узрок самоубиства младих наводи се неузвраћена љубав, смртна болест, смрт блиске особе, неуспех у школи, вршњачко насиље...Процењује се да је најгоре време за самоубице пролеће и да их је тада највише, али последњих година самоубиства се често догађају и у другим годишњим добима.

Лекари сматрају да код особа које имају предиспозиције за суцид, он се може предвидети и евентуално спречити. Много већи проблем представља чињеница да је све већи број људи који немају никакве психичке поремећаје нити наговештавају да би могли дићи руку на себи, па је њима тешко помоћи и спречити их у намери да науде самом себи. Према статистичким подацима, једна трећина оних који су покушали самоубиство, поновиће то у наредне две године. Повећан број самоубистава мучи цео свет. Према подацима СЗО самоубиства су један од водећих узрока смрти широм света и трећи по реду узрок смрти младих до 25 година. Сваке године, око један милион људи изврши самоубиство – једна смрт на сваких 40 секунди. Светска здравствена организација процењује да ће до 2020. године губици премашити 1,5 милион, и да ће самоубиства чинити 2,4 одсто глобалног оптерећења болестима.

Како би се смањио број самоубистава од држава се тражи превенција, уз истицање да су људи који могу да допринесу смањењу суицида, радници здравствене и социјалне заштите, истраживачки, наставници, полиција, верски и културни лидери, политичари и лидери заједнице, али и волонтери, рођаци и пријатељи. Важну групу заштитних фактора чине и здрави животни стилови, што искључује коришћење алкохола и психоактивних средстава, али и редован одлазак код лекара који може помоћи код депресије или било којег менталног обољења.

Како је самоубиство глобални проблем Међународна асоцијација за превенцију самоубиства, уз подршку Светске здравствене организације, сваки 10. септембар обележава као Светски дан превенције самоубиства, са циљем да се тог дана скрене пажња јавности на самоубиство као један од водећих узрока преране смрти који је могуће спречити. Ширење информација, побољшање образовања, едукација, као и смањење сигматизације, важни су задаци у таквим напорима. Ове године тема Светског дана превенције самоубистава је “Повезивање, комуникација, брига”.

Љ. Малешевић


Сваких 17 до 20 сати једно самоубиство у Војводини

Према подацима Института за јавно здравље Војводине број самоубистава у покрајини на 100.000 становника у последњих десет година је у опадању и сада износи 22 самоубистава на 100.000 људи. То значи да се у просеку на сваких 17 до 20 сати изврши једно самоубиство, у зависности од године до године.

Slovenia


Ljubljana


As in the previous years also this year the WSPD activities in Slovenia will be a joint action by National Institute of Public Health, Andrej Marusic Institute University of Primorska, National Organisation for quality of life OZARA and Slovene Association for Suicide Prevention.

We will join the IASP "Cycle around the Globe" campaign for the third time. Update: 22,000 km achieved this year. The activity will be advocated and supported nationwide. It is our goal to get Slovenian VIPs (politicians, actors, etc.) to participate and support the action. Also other proposed WSPD activities will be disseminated (i.e. light a candle)

We will hold a seminar, directed at main outcomes of a suicide related project. Also decision-makers will be invited which will hopefully have a positive impact on suicide prevention in Slovenia - that it will be recognized as a priority.

A Crisis Telephone NGO (Zaupna telefona Samarijan in Sopotnik)will hold a round table on the topic of suicide.

We will broadcast a TV spot on suicide prevention and help seeking.

We hope that the launched activities will contribute to suicide awareness and suicide prevention.

World Suicide Prevention Day - Singapore

As part of World Suicide Prevention Week, Samaritans of Singapore (SOS) will continue the Plaster the Silence campaign that encourages everyone to show their support by wearing a black SOS plaster on their inner wrists. This is the second consecutive year SOS is running this campaign.

The plaster acts as a conversation starter, emphasising that the first step to suicide prevention is to get people talking about their feelings and what they’re going through.

From 5 September 2016, supporters will be able to download a virtual plaster, which they can add to their social media profile pictures.

On 10 September 2016, black SOS plasters will be given out at several locations throughout Singapore. Supporters will be able to collect the plasters, wear them on their inner wrists and post a photo with a heartfelt caption using the hashtag #HOWRU.

The campaign will see celebrities, brands, a local media giant, local food and beverage outlets, and entertainment venues stepping up to lend their hand to spread awareness.

La luz y el color verde creará un ambiente acogedor, seguro, que simboliza el equilibrio, la vida y la esperanza.

- Lectura del Manifiesto “Busca la “E”. Espera”: Distintas autoridades y personalidades presentes en el acto irán leyendo partes del Manifiesto propuesto por el Teléfono de la Esperanza con motivo del evento.

- Colocación de velas: Cada asistente ira depositando su vela sobre un gran lazo verde que estará trazado en el suelo.

- Coral: Durante la colocación de las velas, los asistentes estarán acompañados por las voces de una coral que ayudarán a crear un ambiente de respeto y recogimiento.

- Lanzamiento de globos blancos. A los participantes se les entregará un globo blanco que soltarán al aire una vez que haya finalizado la actuación de la coral. Representa un homenaje al recuerdo de todas las personas que han fallecido por suicidio.

- A las 21:00 h fin del acto y cierre de la jornada.

World Suicide Prevention Day - Thailand

วันป้องกันการฆ่าตัวตายโลก 10 กันยายน 2559 Connect. Communicate. Care “สัมพันธ์ สื่อสาร ใส่ใจ ”

วันป้องกันการฆ่าตัวตายโลก ตรงกับวันที่ 10 กันยายน ของทุกปี องค์การอนามัยโลกกำหนดให้วันดังกล่าวเป็นวันสำคัญคือ วันป้องกันการฆ่าตัวตายโลก (World Suicide Prevention Day) โดยประกาศเป็นครั้งแรกเมื่อ ปี พ.ศ. 2546 โดย Themeของปี 2016: Connect. Communicate. Care “สัมพันธ์ สื่อสาร ใส่ใจ” สถานการณ์ทั่วโลก องค์การอนามัยโลกประมาณการณ์ว่ามีกว่า 800,000 คนที่ตายจากการฆ่าตัวตายในแต่ละปี มีหนึ่งในคนทุก 40 วินาทีที่ฆ่าตัวตาย จากข้อมูลสำนักนโยบายและยุทธศาสตร์ กระทรวงสาธารณสุข พบว่าสถานการณ์ปัญหาการฆ่าตัวตายของประเทศไทย มีแนวโน้มเสียชีวิตจากการฆ่าตัวตายเพิ่มมากขึ้นจากปี 2558 มีอัตราการฆ่าตัวตายอยู่ที่ 6.47 ต่อแสนประชากร สูงขึ้นจากปี 2557 ที่มีอัตราอยู่ที่ 6.08 ต่อแสนประชากร เฉลี่ยเดือนละ 350 คน หรือ ทุกๆ 2 ชั่วโมง มีคนไทยฆ่าตัวตายสำเร็จ 1 คน โดยผู้ชาย มีอัตราการฆ่าตัวตายเพิ่มสูงขึ้นและสูงกว่าผู้หญิง 4 เท่า สำหรับปัจจัยและสาเหตุที่เกี่ยวข้องกับการฆ่าตัวตาย อันดับหนึ่งได้แก่ ปัญหาความสัมพันธ์ รองลงมาคือ โรคทางกาย/โรคทางจิต และ ปัญหาเศรษฐกิจ/ตกงาน นอกจากนั้นพบว่า ประเด็นความรักความหึงหวง เป็นปัญหาความสัมพันธ์ที่ขึ้นมาเป็นอันดับ 1 ของการทำร้ายตนเองมากที่สุดถึงร้อยละ 20 และมีแนวโน้มเพิ่มขึ้นอย่างต่อเนื่อง รองลงมา คือ โรคซึมเศร้า และ น้อยใจคนใกล้ชิดดุด่า ซึ่งสิ่งเหล่านี้แสดงให้เห็นถึงปัญหาความสัมพันธ์ระหว่างกัน ซึ่ง0สอดคล้องกับการสำรวจสุขภาพจิต(ความสุข) คนไทย โดยสำนักงานสถิติแห่งชาติ แยกตามองค์ประกอบหลักของสุขภาพจิต 5 ด้าน ได้แก่ด้านความรู้สึกที่ดีและด้านการมีความรู้สึกที่ไม่ดี ซึ่งเป็นองค์ประกอบของสภาพจิตใจและสมรรถภาพจิตใจ ด้านคุณภาพของจิตใจและปัจจัยสนับสนุน จากผลสำรวจไตรมาสที่ 3 พ.ศ. 2558 พบว่าองค์ประกอบที่อ่อนแอที่สุดคือ สมรรถภาพของจิตใจ เป็นองค์ประกอบที่เกี่ยวกับการสร้างความสัมพันธ์กับผู้อื่นและการจัดการปัญหาต่างๆที่เกิดขึ้น ดังนี้การพัฒนาสมรรถภาพของจิตใจด้วยการสร้างความสัมพันธ์ที่ดีต่อกันโดยเฉพาะในครอบครัวจึงเป็นเรื่องที่สำคัญ
ปัญหาการฆ่าตัวตาย เริ่มต้นป้องกันได้จากครอบครัว โดย
1. การมีสัมพันธ์ที่ดีต่อกัน (Connect.) ไม่ห่างเกินไปและไม่ใกล้ชิดจนเกินไป สมาชิกมีความเป็นตัวของตัวเอง มีบทบาทหน้าที่ชัดเจน
2. สื่อสารดีต่อกัน (Communicate.) การสื่อสารที่ดีควรเป็นการสื่อสารที่สื่อจากความรู้สึกของตัวเองโดยตรง เช่นบอกความรู้สึกความต้องการอย่างจริงใจ และถามความเห็นเพื่อแสดงให้เห็นว่าเราสนใจในความรู้สึกนึกคิด แสดงความชื่นชมหรือขอบคุณเพื่อเสริมสร้างความรู้สึกที่ดีต่อกันและกัน นอกจากนั้นยังสามารถสื่อสารได้โดยไม่ใช้คำพูดเช่น มองหน้า สบตา การยิ้ม จับมือ โอบกอด การสัมผัส ก็จะช่วยสร้างพลังให้คนในครอบครัวได้
3. เอาใจใส่ซึ่งกันและกัน (Care.) ด้วยการให้เวลากับคนในครอบครัว ใช้เวลาในทำกิจกรรมร่วมกัน ใส่ใจสอบถาม ร่วมมือกันเมื่อเกิดความขัดแย้ง เมื่อคนในครอบครัวมีปัญหาและอุปสรรคเกิดขึ้น ก็พร้อมช่วยเหลือดูแล
นอกจากนั้น การสังเกตสัญญาณเตือนที่จะทำร้ายตัวเองไม่ว่าจะเป็นคำพูดหรือพฤติกรรม อย่ามองว่า
เป็นการเรียกร้องความสนใจ หรือเรื่องล้อเล่น ให้มองเป็นความต้องการความช่วยเหลือเร่งด่วนที่ต้องทำทันที ด้วยการให้คำแนะนำอย่างจริงใจ ไม่ตำหนิหรือซ้ำเติม ให้กำลังใจสร้างความหวังว่าปัญหานั้นแก้ไขได้ คอยระวังอย่างใกล้ชิดให้อยู่ในสายตาและให้อยู่ห่างจากอุปกรณ์ที่เขาเตรียมไว้เพื่อทำร้ายตัวเอง แนะนำช่องทางในการให้คำปรึกษา เช่น สายด่วนสุขภาพจิต 1323 หรือคลินิกให้คำปรึกษา หรือสถานพยาบาลใกล้บ้านเพื่อให้เขาเข้าสู่ระบบการช่วยเหลือโดยเร็ว
ดังนั้น การสร้างความสัมพันธ์ที่ดีต่อกัน มีการสื่อสารที่ดี เอาใจใส่ซึ่งกันและกัน จะช่วยป้องกันและลดปัญหาการฆ่าตัวตายในสังคม

TPD 10 Eylül İntiharı Önleme Günü Basın Açıklaması

Dünya Sağlık Örgütü’nün verilerine göre, her yıl yaklaşık 1 milyon kişi intihar sonucu hayatını kaybetmekte ve geride ailesinden bir üyenin yada arkadaşının yasını tutan 5 ila 6 milyon kişi bırakmaktadır. Sonlandırılmış intiharların yanı sıra yine her yıl, yaklaşık 10 ila 20 milyon kişinin intihar girişiminde bulunduğu bildirilmektedir, ki bu her 3 saniyede 1 kişinin intihar girişiminde bulunduğu anlamına gelir.

İntihar oranları ülkemizde giderek artmaktadır. Son 30 yılda intihar edenlerin sayısı yüzde 440 artış göstermiştir. Son 10 yılda Türkiye’de toplam 25 000 kişi intihar sonucu kaybedilmiştir. İntihar oranları endüstriyel ülkelerden daha düşük olmasına rağmen aradaki farkın hızla kapandığı dikkati çekmektedir.

Son veriler her yıl yaklaşık 2800 kişinin ülkemizde intihar sebebiyle kaybedildiğini göstermektedir. Bu rakam trafik kazalarında ölenlerin yarısı kadardır. Özellikle genç yaşta intihar oranları giderek artmakta ve bu yaş grubu için intihar ilk 4 ölüm sebebinden birini oluşturmaktadır. Tüm dünyada 15-24 yaş grubu intiharların en fazla görüldüğü gruptur. Ülkemizde de tüm intiharların %25’i bu yaş grubunda gerçekleşmektedir. Genellikle sonlandırılmış intiharların erkeklerde daha yüksek olmasına karşın, 15-24 yaş arası grupta kadınlarda intihar oranları daha fazla bildirilmiştir. Birçok önleme çalışmasında dikkatlerin bu yaş gruplarına odaklandığı gözlenmektedir; ancak intiharın her yaş grubunda görülebildiği, hatta 75 yaş üzerinde oranların yine yükseldiği gerçeğini gözden kaçırmamak gerekir. İntihar önleme çalışmalarında farklı yaş gruplarının ihtiyaçlarına yönelik stratejiler planlanmalıdır.

İntihar birden fazla etkene bağlı gelişen, ancak büyük ölçüde ruhsal hastalıklar zemininde ortaya çıkan bir davranıştır. Başta depresyon olmak üzere ruhsal hastalıklar intihar riskinde 10 kat artışa sebep olmaktadır. İlişki sorunları, ekonomik kayıplar, yalnızlık, düş kırıklığı, utanç, aşağılanma, başarısızlık, aile içi çatışmalar gibi zorlayıcı hayat olayları da intihar riski ile ilişkili bulunmuştur; ancak bu risk faktörleri genellikle tek başına intihar sebebi değildir. Bir çok risk faktörü, ruhsal hastalıklarla birlikte olduğunda intihar eğilimi artabilir.

İntiharın tümüyle önüne geçmek mümkün değildir; ancak intiharı önleme çalışmaları ile Avrupa’da bir çok ülkede gösterildiği gibi intihar oranlarını azaltmak mümkündür. İntiharların %90’ında bir psikiyatrik tanı varlığı gösterilmiş olmasına rağmen, beklenenin aksine bu kişilerin yalnız dörtte biri ölümleri öncesinde bir sağlık kuruluşuna başvurmuşlardır. Ancak bu kişiler % 75 lere varan oranda intihar edeceklerini ya doğrudan söylemiş ya da ima etmişlerdir. Bu durumda, Dünya İntiharı Önleme Günü çerçevesinde intihar konusunda toplumsal duyarlılığı artırmak hayat kurtarıcı olabilecektir. Desteğe ihtiyaç duyan intihar eğilimli bu kişilerin erken belirlenmesi ve etkin tedavilerinin sağlanması yönünde geliştirilecek toplumsal ruh sağlığı bilinçlendirme programlarına ihtiyaç vardır. İntiharlarda görülen yüksek ruhsal hastalık oranları sebebiyle, ruh sağlığının hem bireysel hem de toplumsal düzeyde korunmasına ve iyileştirilmesine yönelik çalışmalar intiharı önlemede esas hedeflerden biri haline gelmiştir.

İntiharın önlenmesindeki öncelikli adımlardan biri intihar davranışının yaygınlığı ile ilgili bilgiyi ve farkındalığı arttırmaktır. İntihar davranışında risk faktörlerin ve sebeplerin çok çeşitli olması nedeniyle önleme çalışmaları için çok boyutlu bir yaklaşım gereklidir ve bu konuda sağlık çalışanlarının dışında birçok kurumun ortak çalışması gerekecektir.

İntihara eğilimli kişilerin erken fark edilmesi amacıyla risk gruplarına yönelik tarama programları geliştirilmeli ve bu kişilerin kolaylıkla her an başvurabilecekleri krize müdahale servisleri, telefon ve internet servis hatları oluşturulmalıdır.

10 Eylül Dünya İntiharı Önleme Günü her yıl intihar sonucu yitirilen yaşamlara, sadece kaybedilen hayatlara değil kaybedilen kişilerin yakınlarındaki yıkıcı etkilere ve intihardan etkilenmiş hayatlara odaklanma imkanı sunmaktadır. Bugün vesilesiyle yalnız sağlık sektörü ve çalışanlarını değil tüm kurumları bu ölümcül ancak önlenebilir konuya duyarlı olmaya ve bunu önleme yönünde çaba harcamaya, elbirliğiyle intiharı önleme konusunda toplumsal stratejiler üretmek için beraber çalışmaya çağırmaktayız.

Методичні рекомендації
з організації та проведення заходів до Всесвітнього дня запобігання суїциду

Максимова Наталія Анатоліївна,
методист центру практичної психології
і соціальної роботи Київського обласного інституту
післядипломної освіти педагогічних кадрів

За даними Всесвітньої організації охорони здоров’я серед населення віком від 15 до 44 років суїцид є однією з головних причин смертності. За офіційними даними, кожного року в світі близько мільйона людей закінчують життя самогубством. Кожні 40 секунд у світі хтось вбиває себе. І хоч як це жахливо, серед підлітків суїцид – третя за частотою причина смерті. В Україна на кожні 100 тис. населення припадає більше двадцяти самогубств. За офіційними даними наша держава входить у першу десятку країн світу з найвищим рівнем самогубств. Щодня в Україні від самогубств вмирає 35-40 осіб і здійснюється близько 500 суїцидальних спроб. Отже, існує велика кількість здорових дітей, перед якими постає питання про сенс власного існування та необхідність жити далі. Юнь потребує більшої уваги дорослих, адже вони тільки зовні справляють враження незалежних і самостійних, а «всередині» хлопці й дівчата дуже вразливі й болісно реагують на життєві негаразди.

Всесвітній день запобігання самогубствам або Всесвітній день запобігання суїциду (англ. World Suicide Prevention Day) 10 вересня, проводиться за ініціативи Міжнародної асоціації запобігання самогубствам (МАПС) при активній підтримці Всесвітньої організації охорони здоров'я та під патронатом Організації Об'єднаних Націй. Всесвітній день запобігання суїциду, за задумом представників Міжнародної асоціації запобігання самогубствам, покликаний привернути увагу влади та громадськості до цієї проблеми.

Суїцидальна поведінка не є виключно медичною чи психологічною проблемою. Причини такого складного феномену як суїцид включають в себе соціальні, економічні, психологічні, культурні, релігійні і медичні фактори ризику. Профілактика суїцидальних дій є комплексним завданням, виконання якого можливе за ефективної взаємодії різних структур суспільства, має бути забезпечено комплексним підходом та виробленням конкретної превентивної стратегії.

Робота практичного психолога та соціального педагога з профілактики суїцидальної поведінки має декілька профілактичних рівнів: загальний, первинний, вторинний і третинний.

Завданням загальної профілактики суїцидальної поведінки є сприяння успішній соціальній адаптації учнів, підвищення групової згуртованості дитячих колективів, створення позитивного психологічного клімату.

Адаптація – це стан динамічної відповідності та рівноваги між живою системою (людиною) і зовнішнім середовищем. У нормі всі суб’єкти навчально-виховного процесу мають адаптуватись до умов навчального закладу, причому на трьох рівнях: фізичному, психічному та соціальному.

З метою ефективної фізичної адаптації у навчальному закладі має бути дотриманий режим навчального процесу з урахуванням вікових особливостей, розміщенням учнів у класі відповідно до медичних рекомендацій, організація харчування тощо.

Психологічній адаптації буде сприяти наявність сприятливого психологічного клімату в навчальному закладі, психологічне здоров’я всіх учасників навчально-виховного процесу, врахування індивідуальних особливостей учнів і педагогічних працівників у процесі організації діяльності, можливостей особистісної реалізації. Для ефективної соціальної адаптації важливим є наявність згуртованого педагогічного і класного колективів, загальні для всього навчального закладу правила, норми, традиції та цінності.

На етапі загальної профілактики рекомендуємо проводити заходи, спрямовані на адаптацію учасників навчально-виховного процесу до умов навчального закладу, формуючи (підсилюючи вже існуючі) антисуїцидальні бар’єри.

It's okay to talk this World Suicide Prevention Day

As a member of the National Suicide Prevention Alliance (NSPA), the British Psychological Society is teaming up with Andy’s Man Clubs to encourage men to reach out for help and support when life feels overwhelming.

In the run-up to World Suicide Prevention Day, (Sept 10), the BPS is one of 70 organisations in England who are joining together in a big national unified push to reduce deaths by suicide, by telling men that ‘it’s okay to talk’.

The initiative comes after an online campaign of the same name reached millions of people globally last month.TV stars, sportsmen, comedians and public figures all over the world shared pictures of themselves making an OK sign with their hands, alongside the hashtag #ITSOKAYTOTALK.

Now, the BPS is working with Halifax rugby player Luke Ambler, who created the campaign and founded the Andy’s Man Club support movement for men, after losing his brother to suicide earlier this year, to push the message out well beyond the internet.

Luke Ambler said: “We didn’t know anything was wrong with Andy, and then he took his own life. I don’t want anyone to go through what we continue to go through, so we’re delighted to be working with the National Suicide Prevention Alliance to get the message out that ‘it’s okay to talk’, to as many men as possible. If you’re struggling to cope, even if you think nobody will understand, take that first step, talk to someone, ring Samaritans, go and see a friend, speak to your GP. Your life matters.”

Statistics show that men are three times more likely to take their own lives than women and that suicide is the biggest killer of men under 50 in the UK.

Professor Peter Kindeman, BPS President said: “The success of “#ITSOKAYTOTALK” online shows that suicide affects everybody. Suicide prevention is everyone’s business. We need to make it easier for people to talk through difficult thoughts and feelings, but it’s also important that charities, organisations and agencies work harder and better together to tackle suicide in a unified, organised way. Together we can save lives.”

World Suicide Prevention Day: Why Connection, Communication and Care Should Be At The Heart Of Suicide Prevention

Blog written by Joy Hibbins, Founder and Director of Suicide Crisis, a charity which runs a Suicide Crisis Centre in Cheltenham, UK.


Derry, Northern Ireland


World Suicide Prevention Day - Derry Northern Ireland

The 'Empty Chair' - Beacon Support Services - The Rosses (Part of Niamh) in partnership with Time 2 Choose will be placing 'empty chairs' in different areas of the city with information about WSPD attached to each chair. On Sat 10th the Guildhall Square in Derry will see a large 'empty chair' being erected and information on mental Health & well-being being distributed in the city centre throughout the day. The genesis of the 'Empty Chair' is that people often have a favourite chair at home where they usually sit. When we lose a loved one, a poignant reminder of the loss is their empty chair. The empty chair in the Guildhall Square and in different areas of the city are significant for a number of reasons; they are in memory of those who have lost their lives to suicide, they are to remind those who have lost friends and loved ones to suicide that they are in our thoughts and to raise awareness of mental health and wellbeing. Through this we want to connect to people on a number of levels, we want to communicate the message that help is out there, and we want to show people who have lost loved ones to suicide that people care.

World Suicide Prevention Day - Durham Inside Out

If U Care Share Foundation believes that suicide is preventable and that sometimes, talking about our feelings can save lives. The campaign itself is very simple; all we ask is that people from all over the country get involved and wear at least one item of clothing 'Inside Out' on the 10th September, to coincide with World Suicide Prevention Day. As well as this, we ask you to wear an #ASKMEWHY sticker. Then simply take a #ASKMEWHY selfie of you with your sticker on your 'inside out'-fit and share on social media. We believe that this is a perfect way to start a conversation, enabling us to bring the 'Inside Out'.

The Impact of Suicide on Families and Couples: A Family Therapist's View

Whether it happened fifty years ago or yesterday, suicide can have a tremendous and long lasting impact on those left behind, also called "suicide survivors". In addition to despair, anxiety, anger, denial and shock, survivors often experience isolation, guilt, and shame. After a suicide loss relationships, decision making and coping skills can be immobilized, celebrations and rituals are often canceled, and family conflict might arise. Survivors are also at increased risk of suicide.

In this workshop, through lecture and case presentations, participants will:

  1. discuss ways to develop a balanced therapeutic position respectful of each client's struggle with suicide and its legacy;
  2. become familiar with collaborative safety planning;
  3. examine how suicide loss and/or suicidality shape and organize relationships;
  4. explore dilemmas encountered by clinicians treating families and couples who experienced suicide, or suicide loss;
  5. create a therapeutic context in which families can 'move forward' while making meaning of the suicide.

San Angelo, Texas


In San Angelo, Texas, we are hosting our first ever WSPD event. It is a "Shine a Light" luminary walk at dusk to honor those impacted by suicide. I'd love to share this, as we are building the state's 3rd (that I'm aware of) LOSS team from our survivors sorry group formed in April. A local counseling group, the West Texas Guidance and Counseling Center hosted Dr. Frank Campbell in April to try to get a first responder group created to help with the aftermath of suicide grief. I lost my 16 year-old son in 2012 by gunshot, in front of me. I had someone reach out to me immediately afterward who had been there. I KNOW what a difference these LOSS teams can make in processing the pain. I'm ready to help. Here's a link to the event, if that will work: <

Seattle, Washington


World Suicide Prevention Day - London Ontario Lifting the Silence

Forefront marks World Suicide Prevention Day Sept. 10 with workshops, documentary film

Every one of us has a role to play in preventing suicide, say organizers with Forefront: Innovations in Suicide Prevention, based in the University of Washington School of Social Work and led by Professor Jennifer Stuber.

As a reminder of that truth, Forefront is participating in World Suicide Prevention Day Saturday, Sept. 10, by offering suicide prevention workshops in two locations and the premiere of a powerful short documentary film about a Vashon Island teen lost to suicide.

Stuber, Forefront’s co-founder and faculty director, said the film and workshops both underscore a public health warning as simple and lifesaving as “buckle your seat belts” — that firearms and other potentially dangerous items in the home, such as prescription medications, should be stored safely and away from children.

The 10-minute film, called “Thunderstorm in My Brain,” was produced by Stuber with David Friedle, a film instructor and recent graduate of the UW College of Education’s Danforth Program. It tells the story of the life and death of Vashon Islander Palmer Burk, who died at the age of 14 from a self-inflicted gunshot four years ago — and discusses how to prevent similar tragedies from happening to other families.

The film will premiere in a free screening at 1 p.m. at the Vashon Theatre, 17723 Vashon Highway SW, in Palmer’s hometown. Space is limited, so registration is requested.

The screening will be followed by a question and answer session with Stuber and Friedle, and will conclude with a suicide prevention training session on how to tell if someone is at risk for suicide and what to say and do if that is the case

Also, from 10 a.m. to noon the same day in Room 305 of the School of Social Work, Sue Eastgard, Forefront co-founder and training director, will give a two-hour workshop focusing on five skills that can help prevent suicide, from a Forefront curriculum called LEARN. Briefly put, these are how to look for warning signs, empathize and listen, ask directly about suicide, remove possible dangers and know what to do next. Space is limited for this, too, and registration is requested.

Eastgard said, “It is Forefront’s belief that most suicides are preventable and that anyone can learn to recognize the warning signs for suicide, as well as the resources for helping a person in emotional distress.”

The film is a personal project for Stuber, who lost her husband to firearm suicide in 2011. She said she worked on it during a sabbatical, glad for the opportunity to do something “outside the box.” Friedle was a filmmaking teacher for Seattle Public Schools looking to make a film focusing on social issues who met Stuber and decided to use his filmmaking skills for her suicide prevention efforts.

“As we dug into the issue, it became very clear that in order to help prevent suicide we needed to reframe the gun safety debate as a public health issue,” he said. “The statistics around the use of guns for suicide are staggering.”

Friedle said he and Stuber want to use the film to spark conversations about suicide prevention in the hardest-hit areas of the state, particularly rural communities. They also feel it important that gun owners see the film.

“Thunderstorm in My Brain” has been accepted to the Ellensburg Film Festival and is under consideration by others. Its Vashon showing is co-sponsored by the Vashon Alliance to Reduce Substance Abuse and the Vashon Theatre.

“This is not an easy topic, but there is hope in the progress that we are making,” said Stuber.

“And for me the film hits home — if you do nothing else the safe storage is so, so critical, particularly if you have children in the house. Also, attending suicide prevention training is another thing you can do to play a role in suicide prevention.”

World Suicide Prevention Day - Footpath

After the terrible experiences I had to face after the suicide of my partner, and the helpless months before, trying to prevent again and again that something like this will not happen, my life changed in a very dramatic way.

Out of this situation a very special project was born because I want to do something special for those who left behind after a suicide and not only for them. The Footpath of Life

Starting March 27, 2018, I will walk around the world and creating the Footpath of Life - a more than 44,000 km long trail around the world, lined by the trees of memory. Trees I want to plant together with humans who have lost somebody in a tragic way for those, who are gone.

World Suicide Prevention Day - Suicide Shatters

This is an ONLINE event being held on the Suicide Shatters FB page to commemorate World Suicide Prevention Day, Sept. 10th, 2016.

*** NOTE: This is the event page only, NOT where we post photos, photos can be posted on the Suicide Shatters page on Sept. 10th. *** www.facebook.com/events/610326689129451/

It's a day to come together to raise awareness on #WSPD honouring those we have lost to suicide, to celebrate those who have attempted but thankfully survived and support those struggling with mental illness that often contributes to suicide.

This day is often thought of only for loss survivors, but to me it has always been about suicide prevention, education and raising awareness. I include all who have had suicide impact their lives. I feel we are so very fortunate to have many attempt survivor members as well as those with suicidal thoughts - so here's a safe place for all - free of judgement, filled with understanding, compassion and support.

For LOSS SURVIVORS, please share the name(s) of those who have died by suicide, their relationship to you and a wonderful memory you'd like to share of them. Please also include if you're comfortable, a photo which can can be added (only on Sept. 10th) along with your comment on the FB page, as opposed to this event page.

For ATTEMPT SURVIVORS, I hope you will participate and share what has kept you here with us to help others have hope, and to also educate those who have never been suicidal - better understand. If you are comfortable, please share your photo along with your comment.

For THOSE WITH SUICIDAL THINKING and LIVING WITH MENTAL ILLNESS, this day impacts you as well and I feel it's so important to honour each and every member so ask you to also participate. Leave a comment as to what you have experienced in relation to suicide and please also include a photo if you feel comfortable doing so.

Hope to see you all participating on the FB page on WSPD. It will be a day to share openly how suicide has impacted us all and hope it brings comfort and leads to good conversations and lessons for us all. ~ Barb

NOTE: I would ask all who are posting here to please keep in mind when posting, NOT to post triggering comments. I know you want to share your stories, but it's important to consider that some are very fragile and vulnerable here, so please do not mention suicide method or graphic details of method to keep this page safe for all. - Thanks!

Please SHARE this to let others know the importance and meaning of this day so they may join us too!

The quote on the photo/poster comes from a resource called "If You are Thinking About Suicide - Read this First!" from www.metanoia.org/suicide/.

World Suicide Prevention Day - Suicidio, hablar es Vital

Suicidio, hablar es Vital

¿QUIERES COMPARTIR TU EXPERIENCIA?
¿Has vivido algún episodio negro en tu vida? ¿Has tenido pensamientos suicidas en algún momento? ¿Has superado uno o varios intentos de suicidio?

La semana que viene, para celebrar el Día Internacional de la Prevención del Suicidio, nos gustaría publicar escritos de personas que han pensado en la muerte o que han hecho algún intento de suicidio y han salido adelante.

Tu testimonio es muy importante para ayudar a otras personas atrapadas en pensamientos oscuros. Solo el que ha pasado por ello puede hablar de manera que el otro se sienta identificado. Puedes contarnos lo que viviste, dar consejos para superar esos pensamientos, compartir tus razones para vivir o simplemente dar ánimos a quién esté pasando por ello. Lo que quieras, lo que sientas…

El objetivo es que esa persona entienda que le puede pasar a cualquiera, que no está sola, que se puede salir del pozo, que pida ayuda... Estos mensajes son una forma de apoyar a las personas con ideación suicida pero también una manera de educar a la sociedad en general y dar visibilidad a este tema tabú.

¿Te apetece participar? Tan solo tienes que enviarnos por mensaje privado o por mail (hablaresvital@outlook.es) un texto contando tu experiencia o unas palabras de apoyo a las personas que se sienten en un callejón sin salida. Tu testimonio puede ser de gran ayuda. ¡Compártelo!
