WHO publishes first global report on topic “shrouded in taboo:” Suicide.

On Thursday, the World Health Organization released its first report on the world’s second leading cause of death for people aged 15 to 29: suicide. “This report is a call for action to address a large public health problem, which has been shrouded in taboo for far too long,” said WHO’s director general, Dr. Margaret Chan.

The publication of the report coincides with World Suicide Prevention Day on Sept. 10. See more at Salon
