Media Guidelines From The Samaritans
Before I crack on with beauty posts, I thought it’s worth a mention of The Samaritans’ excellent guide to the media reporting of suicide. It’s clearly not something that’s especially relevant to beauty bloggers, but many bloggers do touch on issues of mental health and wellbeing in general and it’s just kind of worth knowing that the guide is out there.
It’s a very strong topic at the moment and reporting gets more salacious by the minute – the on-line reach is huge and incredibly influential – even if its something that you never touch on yourself, it’s important to know the potential consequences outlined by the Samaritans. We have our own little space in internet world in the beauty community, who are in general, massively supportive of mental health issues, so I thought it was worth a pause in my beauty posts to make the guidelines generally available.
