What We Know Now: Updating Best Practices for Talking About Suicide & LGBT Populations

The media coverage that took root in the aftermath of these deaths gave LGBT suicide unprecedented visibility and sparked long-overdue public conversation about suicide risk in LGBT communities.

Fears began to mount that the rampant publicity would lead other vulnerable LGBT young people to identify with the experiences of the suicide victims and copy their behavior.
