It is important that we all play our roles in preventing suicide locally.
The media plays a big role in this with research showing that some forms of reporting can lead to increases in suicide rates.
If you are a publisher reporting on a suicide on any platform, we strongly encourage you to follow the Samaritans' media guidelines.
The Samaritans also provide free e-learning on media guidelines.
