Mental Health Today
Suicide is a global phenomenon. According to the World Health Organisation, more than 700,000 people die by suicide every year, which is one person every 40 seconds. That’s one person too many.
Suicide has now become the LEADING cause of death in people aged between 15 and 44 years old. 65,000 people attempt suicide each year in Australia alone. Of those, 3,318 died in 2019.
There are indications that for each adult who died by suicide there may have been more than 20 others attempting suicide. Mental illness is a massive problem and is growing. Almost half of Australians will be diagnosed with a mental health condition at some point in their lives.
On a human level, this is an enormous amount of suffering in people’s daily lives. This is now considered to be a mental health crisis in Australia and around the world.
Timely, low cost and evidence-based interventions can be implemented at population, sub-population and individual levels to prevent suicide and suicide attempts.
So 100% of our profits will go to suicide prevention and mental health research.
