Media promotes suicide prevention hotline

Following the high profile suicides of fashion designer Kate Spade and chef and storytelling Anthony Bourdain, many media outlets have been sharing information about suicide prevention.

Most networks are displaying the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline’s phone number and website.

CNN, which also devoted much of its homepage to remembering Bourdain on Friday, June 8, 2018, also included a large banner at the top of its homepage.

Print outlets are also providing hotline numbers and links to resources on related stories, such as this one on the New York Times website:
