World Suicide Prevention (SuPre) Day 2010

Hundreds of youth leaders, mental health care professionals, supporters and suicide survivors gathered at the Liwasang Aurora inside the Quezon Memorial Circle in culmination of the observance and participation of the World Suicide Prevention Day.

No less than DOH Secretary Enrique Ona and Quezon City Vice Mayor Joy Belmote led the solemn candle lighting ceremony with NGF President Jean M. Goulbourn to signify commitment to save lives by concerted community efforts in preventing suicide.  This is the first time that the country has ever joined the global initiative for Suicide Prevention.
