World Suicide Prevention Day: 10 powerful suicide prevention quotes

Today is World Suicide Prevention Day. On September 10 every year, people all across celebrate World Suicide Prevention Day. The day is observed to raise awareness about the topic of suicide and talk about ways to prevent it. Every person fights a battle that another person has no idea about. 

Sometimes, the battle gets tough and one starts to think about ending their life as an escape plan. Especially during the lockdown this year, with people losing their jobs and loved ones due to the COVID19 pandemic, the rate of suicides has gone high. Hence, it is very important to talk about suicide and depression out loud. 

In 2013, the International Association for Suicide Prevention (IASP) collaborated with the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the World Federation for Mental Health (WFMH) hosted the first-ever World Suicide Prevention Day.

There are several reasons that can lead a person to this decision but there can also be just one powerful reason to prevent them from ending the magic called life. All one has to keep in mind is the pain they will be leaving for their loved ones behind and that after a dark night, the sun always rises high.

Here are 10 powerful quotes on World Suicide Prevention Day which are helpful in preventing suicidal thoughts. Send these to your loved ones and instill hope of a better tomorrow in them.
