A. Certain ways of describing suicide in the news contribute to what behavioral scientists call ‘suicide contagion’ or ‘copycat’ suicides. Research suggests that inadvertently romanticizing suicide or idealizing those who take their own lives by portraying suicide as a heroic or romantic act may encourage others to identify with the victim. Exposure to suicide method through media reports can encourage vulnerable individuals to imitate it. Clinicians believe the danger is even greater if there is a detailed description of the method. Research indicates that detailed descriptions or pictures of the location or site of a suicide encourage imitation. Presenting suicide as the inexplicable act of an otherwise healthy or high-achieving person may encourage identification with the victim.
