Do’s and Don’t’s:

1. think about who the audiences are. If you are sharing, please include where to find help as well.
2. please leave out the details. It might encourage others to try.
3. avoid making it a headline. We don’t want to glorify the act.
4. more sensitive instead of sensational
5. avoid pictures, front covers
