Expansive news coverage of several recent suicide deaths
of youth known or believed to be gay has resulted in an
unprecedented national discussion about suicide risk
among lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT)
people. Some of that coverage, however, has oversimplified
or sensationalized a number of the underlying issues, and
in some cases may have created the potential for suicide
contagion risk (see below).
This guide provides ways to talk about suicide safely and
effectively, while advancing vital public discussions about
preventing suicide, helping increase acceptance of LGBT
people, and supporting their well-being.
