5 Recommendations for Reporting on Suicide
Link: http://reportingonsuicide.org/
Description: The Recommendations for Media Reporting on Suicide was developed by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and Suicide Awareness Voices of Education (SAVE), among others. The recommendations were developed by a group of suicide prevention experts, researchers and journalists and are based on more than 50 research studies. Included in the updated recommendations is advice for online journalists including bloggers, message board forums and moderators and "citizen journalists." Suicide is a public health issue. Media and online coverage of suicide should be informed by using best practices. Some suicide deaths may be newsworthy. However, the way media covers suicide can influence behavior negatively by contributing to contagion or positively by encouraging help-seeking. Suicide Contagion or “Copycat Suicide” occurs when one or more suicides are reported in a way that contributes to another suicide.

10 ReDNet Research Project
Link: http://www.rednetproject.eu/
Description: The emergence of new recreational drugs, such as so-called ‘legal highs’, ‘novel compounds’, and ‘research chemicals' (e.g., Spice and other synthetic cannabinoids, mephedrone, and GBL), over the last few years, together with the role of the Internet both in the dissemination of positive and negative information regarding these new trends and as a widely accessible online marketplace, have become increasingly prominent issues in the fields of drug policy, substance use research, and public health. The Recreational Drugs European Network (ReDNet) project is a multi-site research study with the aim of improving the level of information available to young people (16-24) and professionals on the effects of these new recreational drugs and the potential health risks associated with their use. We also aim to explore the potential of a number of innovative information communication technologies (ICTs e.g., SMS, social networking sites, multimedia platforms) in the dissemination of accurate and non-judgmental information in a timely way, and in line with the needs of each of our target groups. A newsletter is available on the website.
