Responsible Reporting on Suicide Webinar
August 31 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation (OSPF) is hosting a Responsible Reporting on Suicide webinar on Aug. 31 from 1:00-2:00 p.m. Reporting after a suicide death can increase the likelihood of suicide contagion or reduce the likelihood of additional suicides, depending on how the death is discussed in the news or social media. Join Dr. John Ackerman from the Center for Suicide Prevention and Research at Nationwide Children’s Hospital for a rundown on the relationship between reporting and suicide rates, responsible reporting guidelines for journalists and non-journalists alike, and how suicide prevention champions can encourage media partners to adopt these guidelines. The webinar is free for OSPF members and $25 for non-members. Click the link for more information and to register.
