Suicide: Reporting guidelines for Journalists

Venue OL2, University of Derby, Kedleston Road, Derby, DE22 1GB

Event date: Monday, 24 April 2017 at 11.00 AM
Running until: Monday, 24 April 2017 at 1.00 PM

This event is organised by the University of Derby, with The Samaritans, and the Independent Press Standards Organisation, to inform professional journalists on how best to report on the sensitive subject of suicide.

There is compelling evidence to show that inappropriate reporting leads to copycat deaths - this symposium will help journalists avoid this.

The event is aimed at professional journalists, and Journalism and Media students. It would also be helpful for those who train journalists.

Please note that this event may contain material of a sensitive nature
