The Independent Press Standards Organisation (IPSO) has today issued guidance for editors and journalists on reporting suicide.
Today IPSO launched guidance for journalists on the responsible reporting of suicide, the culmination of a year-long project looking at reporting in this area.
In the final blog of our series with Samaritans, Lorna Fraser, Executive Lead of their Media Advisory Service, looks at reporting on suicide inquests. She also discusses, from Samaritans’ perspective, some things for journalists to consider when writing about this challenging issue.
