The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that each year approximately one million people die from suicide, which represents one death every 40 seconds. It is predicted that by 2020 the rate of death will increase to one every 20 seconds.⠀

Suicide is now among the three leading causes of death among those aged 15-44 (male and female) and mental health disorders (particularly depression and substance abuse) are associated with more than 90% of all cases of suicide.⠀

It is important to end the stigma around suicide and support each other. You do not have to go through your grief alone. Join our trusted free-of-charge group, led by Dr. Nicholas Wakefield D.Clin.Psy (UK) that meets once a month for individuals who are grieving the death of someone to suicide. ⠀
