SPSM chats about the “Blue Whale Challenge” and other suicide related urban legends, Sunday, 9/10/17, 9pCT. Read the press release from the American Association of Suicidology here.

Much like Dungeons and Dragons in the 1980s, angst about social media and suicide appear to be a predictable societal reaction to social activities adopted by and driven by the young.
