The 10th of September is World Suicide Prevention Day. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO), every year some 700 thousand people in the world lose their lives to suicide. Worldwide, suicide is the fourth leading cause of death of 15 to 29 year olds. In countries like Nepal, it is the leading cause of death of women of working age. Jaya Mental Health is committed to bringing mental health support to people at risk of ending their lives and who have no one to turn to for help. In the Himalayas, we train Female Community Workers in basic, but life saving mental healthcare skills, creating a lifeline for hundreds of men, women and children living in remote farming communities and in need of care and protection. In the past two and half years, through our outreach clinical and training programmes, we’ve managed to reduce numbers of suicides by over 70% in a small corner of Eastern Nepal. Despite this success, much remains to be done. Across the Himalayas and many other regions in the world, thousands of people continue to have no one to turn to for help. We need your support to end these dreadful statistics and bring hope to those who feel hopeless.
