Many groups—non-profit organizations, businesses, charitable foundations, and others—routinely disseminate messages about suicide in websites, social media, educational materials, and other print and digital communications. It is important that this information be conveyed in ways that support suicide prevention rather than increase risk.
Framework for Successful Messaging
Although guidance on safe messaging has long been available to the news media, similar resources had not been developed for others who communicate publicly about suicide. The Action Alliance's Framework for Successful Messaging was designed to fill that gap. This online resource provides guidance and tools that can be used by anyone who develops and disseminates suicide-related content.
