"[A] scientific basis exists for concern that news coverage of suicide may contribute to the causation of suicide."

I suspect we will (again) see a great deal of coverage as a beloved popular person appears to have taken their own life. The document linked above is 20 years old but I couldn't find any better medically-supported guides for media-related suicide contagion.

I hope that my friends and readers who feel the need are able to reach appropriate help and resources.
