World Suicide Prevention Day will be held Saturday, September 10. This is an international outreach sponsored by the World Health Organization and endorsed by APA. In the United States, Screening for Mental Health Inc. hosts the campaign Web site<www.StopASuicide.org>.

The Stop A Suicide Today! campaign outlines specific steps to take when someone is worried that a friend or relative is depressed and possibly suicidal. The Web site features the Suicide Risk Questionnaire, which identifies the warning signs of suicide, along with action steps, facts sheets, and help resources.

Campaign cosponsors include the Suicide Prevention Action Network, American Association of Suicidology, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, Harvard Medical School Department of Psychiatry, and several other educational and prevention organizations. ▪
