WHO estimates one million people die from suicide annually, with suicide rates having increased by 60% worldwide in the last 45 years. It is also among the three leading causes of death among those aged 15–44. A host of conditions exacerbate mental illness and depression leading to suicide, including loneliness, personal crisis and loss, chronic pain, terminal illness, and substance-abuse. This 10-week programme seeks to provide an in-depth understanding on the issue, treatment modalities available, as well as the role first responders can play.
