World Suicide Prevention Day - 10 September, 2014
Efforts to prevent suicide have been celebrated on World Suicide Prevention Day – September 10th – each year since 2003. In 2014, the theme of World Suicide Prevention Day is 'Suicide Prevention: One World Connected.' The theme reflects the fact that connections are important at several levels if we are to combat suicide.
Suicide is a major public health problem. The psychological pain that leads each of these individuals to take their lives is unimaginable. Their deaths leave families and friends bereft, and often have a major ripple effect on communities.
Every year, over 800,000 almost people die from suicide; this roughly corresponds to one death every 40 seconds. The number of lives lost each year through suicide exceeds the number of deaths due to homicide and war combined.
Suicide is the fifth leading causes of death among those aged 30-49 years in 2012 globally, and is the second leading cause of death in the 15-29 years age group in 2012 globally. Overall, it is estimated that during 2012 for each adult who died of suicide there were 27 others who made suicide attempts.

It is with great sadness that we announce that our Honorary Vice President, Professor Charles Spielberger passed away on June 12th. He is survived by his wife, Carol, and his son, Nicholas.
Dr Spielberger was an award winning psychologist whose groundbreaking research into stress and anxiety contributed to the field internationally.

After his retirement, he continued in his research activities running the Center for Research in Behavioral Medicine & Health Psychology. He was supportive of the development of coaching psychology.
