Why do many suicides not get shown in the news?Watch this thread
Example of suicides in the news recently:
Kelly Caitlin- Cyclist commits suicide.
Keith Flint. Prodigy front man- suicide by hanging. Been in the news every day and will remain so for weeks to come.
Often though the events are very personal and families want privacy.
Also, search up "suicide contagion" if the news for some reason ran a major about how one person artfully ended their life, people will want to copy that same method.
Doing an individual report on every single case would be far too time and resource consuming, and just bunging up a little listicle every week all like "this week's suicide victims" would be insensitive. I'd say how they report it now does the job.
You've put the same same link twice there mate
Not sure we can defeat depression, life going wrong, poverty, broken hearts, relationship breakdowns, illness.
Of course more needs to be done... but that means more funding for mental health services, training for schools, mental health 1st aid courses etc... not news stories.
