Stress:
the silent killer
The invisible forces obstructing wellbeing
1 person dies every #40seconds
It's a shocking fact that well into the 21st century, there are close to 800 000 suicide deaths worldwide each year.
WHO Global, 2015
By the time you finish reading this, one person somewhere in the world will have taken their own life.
Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death in 15-19-year-olds...
"Most suicides happen impulsively in moments of crisis with a breakdown in the ability to deal with life stresses, such as overwork, financial problems, depression, relationship break-up or chronic pain and illness."

SUICIDE IS FOREVER, BUT THE STRESS LEADING UP TO IT IS OFTEN TEMPORARY
Suicides are preventable
Mental wellbeing & the prevention of mental health conditions reduce suicide rates by one third.
Interventions to improve stress resilience, reduce suicide rates & improve wellbeing
can be achieved through improving emotional regulation & Emotional Intelligence.
90% of top performers are high in Emotional Intelligence (EQ)
Emotionally intelligent people also display higher levels of wellbeing (Emotional Intelligence 2.0 & MDPI 2019)
20% increase in Emotional Intelligence in the labour force
would add US$ 800 billion to the global economy by 2025












WHEN A PART OF HUMANITY SUFFERS FROM LACK OF MENTAL WELLBEING, ALL OF SOCIETY SUFFERS.
Emotional Intelligence would enable every person to fulfill their social & economic potential, free from stress & anxiety.
The message is clear:
We must find new ways to help people understand their emotions & learn to regulate them. By lowering the threshold to EQ inventories & providing access to Emotional Intelligence (EQ) coaching we are EQuipping the world with more wellbeing (SDG3).
