To prevent suicide, we need to be able to talk about it—without fear or shame. But how we talk about suicide matters. These conversations can be helpful or harmful.

Suicide-related messages must support safety, help-seeking, and healing. To change the conversation, the Action Alliance works with three key groups:

  • the news media;
  • the entertainment media; and
  • other organizations that message to the public about suicide.
