Student mental health/World Suicide Prevention Day Sept. 10 – TRU Newsroom

Student mental health/World Suicide Prevention Day Sept. 10 – TRU Newsroom

September 3, 2019 at 11:30 am  Education, Kamloops, News

Every year, suicide is among the top 20 leading causes of death globally for people of all ages. According to the International Association for Suicide Prevention, suicide is responsible for over 800,000 deaths, which equates to one suicide every 40 seconds.

Every life lost represents someone’s partner, child, parent, friend or colleague. For each suicide, approximately 135 people suffer intense grief or are otherwise affected. This amounts to 108 million people per year who are profoundly impacted by suicidal behaviour. Suicidal behaviour includes suicide, and also encompasses suicidal ideation and suicide attempts. For every suicide, 25 people make a suicide attempt and many more have serious thoughts of suicide.

Dr. Rebecca Sanford teaches in the School of Social Work and Human Service. Her primary area of expertise is suicide and mental health. She can discuss topics in this realm, particularly mental health and suicide among students.
