Media News

Samaritans
Samaritans has launched their new Media Guidelines for Reporting Suicide, which support the highest standards of coverage of suicide. The new online hub of resources cover some additional topics to help journalists and programme makers further understand the issues surrounding suicidal behaviour and offering practical tips on covering these topics. These include celebrity suicides, inquests, youth suicides, self-harm and suicide clusters, and covering these issues in documentaries and drama. The full guidelines can be found here.

Samaritans Media Advisory Lead, Lorna Fraser said: “We know that the current climate has created new challenges for media outlets, in turn adding more pressure on journalists to create of the moment reports. This can be difficult when handling a complex topic like suicide which requires great sensitivity and comes with risk.

“The media has a very powerful role in preventing suicides. We know that reports and programmes that inform and educate the public about the issues surrounding suicidal behaviour, encourage important conversations and promote the value of speaking out and seeking help.”
