Seoul City has received one of the world's most prestigious design awards for a kit it created to help people who've once attempted suicide from making that same decision again.
The kit was one of some 35-hundred designs selected out of more than 10-thousand entries for an International Forum Design Award.
The Seoul Suicide Prevention Center designed the kit for people who ended up in the emergency room after a suicide attempt.
It provides activities to help with their mental health recovery and it comes with information on counseling.
The Germany-based International Forum was founded in the early 1950s and is today a global standard for excellence in design.
