For Journalists: Safe and Effective Messaging Standards

It is vital to adhere to safe and effective messaging standards when reporting on issues impacting the LGBTQ community and/or suicide prevention. This ensures fair and accurate representation of the LGBTQ community and brings attention to the public health crisis of suicide while minimizing the stigma that is often attached to mental health issues. To learn about messaging standards for the LGBTQ community, please download the GLAAD Media Reference Guide. To read about safe messaging for suicide prevention, please read the Suicide Prevention Resource Center’s (SPRC) Safe and Effective Messaging for Suicide Prevention.
