Reporting on Suicide Guidance and News App for Suicide Reporting

News reporting on suicide has increased substantially in recent decades; however, studies show that these media reports – particularly those involving celebrities – may also be associated with an increased number of suicides. To reduce the risk of suicide contagion, Save.org and Cisco teamed up to provide the News App for Suicide Reporting. By helping journalists identify best practices, we can reduce the risk of additional suicides and share resources that offer help, such as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255.
