Dignitas publishes January 2019 Newsletter

Wednesday, January 16, 2019

 In her newsletter of January the 15th, the non-profit member society DIGNITAS (To live with dignity – To die with dignity) reflects on the year 2018 and gives an outlook for 2019.


In 2018, the general advisory work and suicide attempt prevention remained an important part of the activities of the non-profit member society DIGNITAS. In the frame of its legal and political efforts, DIGNITAS wrote several submissions for consultations, and supported and accompanied court cases and political advances in Switzerland and beyond. On 17 May 2018, DIGNITAS celebrated its twentieth anniversary. The number of DIGNITAS’ members increases continually, whilst the number of accompanied suicides remains stable.


In 2019, DIGNITAS will continue to engage in quality of life until the end, self-determination and real freedom of choice, combined with individual responsibility and advance planning. Also, DIGNITAS will continue to engage in work for suicide attempt prevention.
