Media Reporting Guidelines

News stories, articles, and dramatic presentations on the subject of suicide have come under question in the last few years. The concern has been that such presentations may have stimulated some persons to attempt suicide. There is confusion about how the subject of suicide should be treated to minimize this danger.

CASP has created a set of guidelines to help assist in responsible and safe reporting about suicide-related content.
