World Suicide Prevention Day (WSPD) was first launched in 2003 on the 10th of September by IASP with the endorsement of the World Health Organization (WHO). The 10th of September each year has been dedicated as a way of shedding light on the problems of suicide worldwide. The entire month of September is dedicated to bringing awareness to suicide prevention.
''According to the World Health Organization, unfortunately someone around the globe dies by suicide every 40 seconds. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among Canadians under 25 years-old.''
This September please try paying more attention to your own mental health & well-being, and reassure it in others that it’s okay to talk about suicide. And if possible show support to loved ones living with a mental health issue or illness, who are going through a difficult time.
On September 10th please join Candles Cartel in lighting a candle to honour those who have died by suicide or someone who is struggling with suicide-related thoughts and behaviours, and/or has lost a loved one to suicide
Just Light it! - Candles Cartel supports all Canadians and Americans striving for Mental Health, Mental Clarity and Stress Relief through our local candle shop and communication.
