The purpose of the toolkit is to provide media professionals with application-based recommendations drawn from those with lived experience related to suicide. It was developed by suicide prevention and mental health professionals to expand on existing guidelines and is meant to increase a journalist’s awareness of suicide reporting elements that will lead to authentic, meaningful, and responsible stories.
