Covering Mental Health & Suicide
When sharing messages about mental health issues and suicide, it’s vital to do so in a safe and effective way. Media reporting on these issues can either encourage or discourage people from seeking help, and it can even influence suicide contagion. We encourage to you to download Reporting on Suicide’s Best Practices and Recommendations for Reporting on Suicide.
