World Suicide Prevention Day

Lundbeck is proud to raise awareness about suicide prevention and mark World Suicide Prevention Day on 10 September.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that someone dies by suicide every 40 seconds[1].

Due to high suicide rates worldwide, suicide prevention is a global imperative captured by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, with Goal 3 asking States to monitor national suicide mortality rates to reduce premature mortality from non-communicable diseases by a third by 2030[2].

Suicidal behaviour is complex, but it is preventable[3] by addressing risk factors.

As a leader in brain health, Lundbeck is committed to collaborating with key stakeholders to support mental health promotion and suicide prevention strategies.
