Tip of the Week

Safe Messaging for Suicide Prevention

Messages about mental health and suicide prevention can both help and harm someone who is at risk for suicide.  Dozens of studies have shown that certain kinds of messages can actually increase the likelihood of suicide in vulnerable individuals (sometimes called “contagion”).  Although the focus has often been on safety of messages in the news media, experts recommend that suicide prevention programs themselves also follow similar guidelines in all campaigns and materials.

Suicide Attempts by Adolescents

Healthy People 2020, a program with nationwide health-promotion and disease-prevention goals developed by the United States Department of Health and Human Services, composed 26 Leading Health Indicators organized into 12 topics. Data are available on suicide attempts by adolescents.
