What is the 40/120 Challenge?

The purpose of the 40/120 challenge is to highlight the numbers of people every year who take their own life around the world.

In 2020 there were approximately 800,000 people around the world who took their own life and this means that one person every 40 seconds took their own life. State of Mind’s roots are based in rugby league and union and during any game of rugby there will be 120 people around the world who take their own life.
