Suicide reporting guidelines

Disclaimer 1 This tool cannot detect implicit blame, so please ensure that you avoid inadvertently implicitly placing blame on a single factor.

Disclaimer 2 Excluding the method of suicide is the single most impactful way to reduce suicide's contagion effect; please ensure your article omits implicit and explicit text and images regarding the suicide method.
