SPSM chats about supporting social media communities that are surviving a suicide, 2/12/17, 9pCT.
As social media plays an increasingly larger role in creating community and support for everyone (including suicide attempt survivors) there are likely to be social media-based communities that will experience suicide losses, and at the same time consist of many members with lived experience of suicide attempt and risk.
Responding to a suicide loss sensitively, and effectively, however may not have “hard and fast rules” or one “right way” for influencers or group members to react. SPSM alum, Dese’Rae Stage joins SPSM to discuss her experience and wisdom in this area.
