Media Guidelines

There is increasing media coverage of NSSI, ranging from helpful education and myth-busting to stigmatising content containing triggering or graphic images and language. In response to this, members of ISSS collaborated on a recently published guide to media reporting of NSSI.

Stephen Lewis also created a helpful summary infographic, pictured to the right.
