Guide to Engaging the Media in Suicide Prevention

By Suicide Prevention Action Network and Suicide Prevention Resource Center

Produced by the Suicide Prevention Action Network (SPAN USA) and EDC's Suicide Prevention Resource Center (SPRC), this guide helps to achieve our nationís suicide prevention goals by teaching suicide prevention advocates how to serve as effective media spokespeople and to create awareness of this important issue through media coverage. The publication describes how to use television, radio, and print media and provides examples of press releases, media advisories, pitch letters, op-eds, and more. It also gives tips for identifying appropriate media outlets, creating up-to-date media lists, and tracking results.
