The criminalization of suicidal behavior also inhibits many to seek help

The United Nations is celebrating, on Tuesday (10), the World Day for Suicide Prevention. Every year, one million people kill themselves in the world. The number corresponds to one death every 40 seconds.

According to WHO data number of suicide cases exceeds that of homicides and wars combined. The UN agency notes that a large proportion of people who kill themselves suffer from mental problems. And many people who die by suicide never contact health services seeking help.

The theme this year is "Stigma: A major barrier to suicide prevention." According to the WHO, this is a major health problem in countries of low and high incomes, especially among young people.

According to former expert of the World Health Organization, José Bertolote, lacking a bit of human solidarity. "Understanding the suffering of others and have the courage to approach. Often people think: what would I do? I'm no expert, I do not know what to do. I will not do anything. This is not the best conduct. I may not know the solution, but if I approach someone, I identify a problem. "

For the International Association for Prevention Sucídio prejudice with people suffering from mental problems or have suicidal thoughts only worsens the situation.

According to the association, another problem is the criminalization of suicidal behavior, which inhibits many people to seek help.

To mark the World Day for Suicide Prevention are being undertaken several actions on all continents including a "bike ride" across the globe to raise awareness for prevention.

The events are supported by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Association for Sucídio Prevention (IASP).
