High Tech Suicide Prevention

By Sandra Kiume

Two suicide prevention advocates from Grassroots Suicide Prevention talk about developments in e-health, including search engines, smartphones, and social media.

They discuss search engine optimization for the term “I want to kill myself,” and how Apple has improved the Siri interface after user feedback. They also mention Facebook and Twitter’s systems for reporting suicidal content.

The interesting thing about all those methods is that they simply provide a phone hotline number to the suicidal person, which they must then phone. For people using the Internet because they don’t want to use a phone, there are alternatives, listed in the Online Suicide Help directory.

As technology develops, suicide prevention must adapt to new platforms.
