Suicide is taking too many of our loved ones. Often times when the media reports on a suicide, they describe the suicide in detail and how the person completed suicide. This is a trigger for suicide loss survivors and is extremely disrespectful to the loved ones of the deceased.
Thank you for bringing attention to this issue. Suicides have reached epidemic proportions and not enough is being done. Education and discussion will help with suicide prevention. However, when reporting on a suicide it is enough to know they have died by suicide, you don’t need to report any other details.
