World Suicide Prevention day by shadowlight-oak World Suicide Prevention day by shadowlight-oak
Although the overall rate of death by suicide is falling, more than 4,300 people still die by suicide in England and Wales each year. Many more suicide attempts are made. At least one person in every 100 who ends up in hospital after a suicide attempt will succeed within a year, and up to 5% do so over the following decade. A study looking at figures for attempted suicides from several European countries, including the UK, suggests that the figures might be higher - possibly as many as 2% of people who have attempted suicide will kill themselves within a year of the previous attempt. The study also found that about 7% of people in the study died by suicide within the next decade.

Today is also National Write Love on Her Arms, day!

Write Love On Her Arms is a group that support suicidal awareness, and getting help for the people (females are emphasized, but it is not limited too) who have such thoughts, and it's just about letting them know that there are people in this world who care! We write the word "Love" on our arms in showing of our support (my family goes a little more extreme than that - I have L-O-V-E on my knuckles, L-O on the back of my right hand, and V-E on the back of my left, and L-O-V-E on both the inside and outside of my arms. ^^

Maybe it is, and they just decided to do it today, too? Hmmm... you're probably right, though. I suppose they just decided to do it today, being the World Suicide Prevention Day within the World Suicide Prevention Week and all. ^^

To be honest everyone seems to say TWLOHAs is on a different day, it must either move each year, be different in different countries, or both

Hmmm... very interesting.

Perhaps we could just do it every day, and say it's one of those every day things? ^^ Why show ultra-mega support on just one week/day of the year, when we can show it all year 'round?
