World suicide prevention day September 10, 2013

Today September 10 is world suicide prevention day! 

Every year, almost one million people die from suicide; a "global" mortality rate of 16 per 100,000, or one death every 40 seconds.
In the last 45 years suicide rates have increased by 60% worldwide. Suicide is among the three leading causes of death among those aged 15-44 years in some countries, and the second leading cause of death in the 10-24 years age group; these figures do not include suicide attempts which are up to 20 times more frequent than completed suicide.
Suicide worldwide is estimated to represent 1.8% of the total global burden of disease in 1998, and 2.4% in countries with market and former socialist economies in 2020.
Although traditionally suicide rates have been highest among the male elderly, rates among young people have been increasing to such an extent that they are now the group at highest risk in a third of countries, in both developed and developing countries.
Mental disorders (particularly depression and alcohol use disorders) are a major risk factor for suicide in Europe and North America; however, in Asian countries impulsiveness plays an important role. Suicide is complex with psychological, social, biological, cultural and environmental factors involved.

A new break through, and approach, to addressing the actual cause of dissociative disorders is making big changes in helping those that would normally not seek help until it is too late!
Taking advantage of a naturally occurring phenomena that detaches emotions from experiential memories research has shown that we can now target specific and troublesome memories and desensitize them. 
Memories have a hierarchy influencing our decision making process while seeking out pleasure, and avoiding pain.  The determining factor in what makes the memory ranking system work is the intensity level of an emotion at the time of an experience.


Once a memory is identified as being the starting point of a dissociative disorder a client ca…

Psychology Today: Suicide Prevent Mobile Device App Being Developed

Funding Needed for the First Self-help Suicide Prevention Treatment app for Mobile Devices 12,000 teen commit suicide each year, and 24 times this many attempt suicide! Together we can make a difference.
I'm creating the first self-help app for mobile devices to prevent suicides.

I'm a scientist that has been working in the field of suicide prevention for over (3) decades. I have developed a procedure that is tested, quick, and endorsed. The (5) minute procedure, that has already been in use for over a decade, is now ready to be adapted into a mobile app format.

Your financial assistance will make this app for mobile devices a reality in 2017.

It is estimated that over 3,000 people commit suicide, and there are 72,000 attempted suicides each day globally.

Help make this grassroots global impact movement to prevent suicides a reality and contribution now.

Every life matters!

Thank you.
