Abstract

We evaluated how well Associated Press News Wire stories adhered to the Recommendations for Reporting on Suicide™ during 2012, a peak year of military suicide. We included individual suicide stories (N = 167) from randomly selected days. We also evaluated differences in the military versus civilian coverage. Military and civilian stories typically had about five negative practices, and less than one positive practice, with military stories significantly more likely to miss valuable opportunities to promote help-seeking. Our findings, combined with previous evidence, suggest the need for the development of specific military suicide reporting guidelines.
