This is my recent interview on BFM.my radio about suicide and the role of the media in portraying the issues surrounding that.
From BFM: How suicide is reported or portrayed in the media has a huge impact on people who are watching or reading it. Assoc Prof Dr Amer Siddiq bin Amer Nordin, Consultant Psychiatrist from University Malaya Medical Centre, discusses the responsibility of the media to portray suicide in a sensitive manner.
