Abstract




Every September 10 since 2003, the International Association for Suicide Prevention (https://www.iasp.info/es/index.php) and the World Health Organization (WHO) have promoted World Suicide Prevention Day, with the aim of raising awareness in the general population whose suicide can occur from an early age, a condition which can be prevented. Suicide is one of the leading causes of death worldwide, although its etiology is still not well understood.
