Case study of posts before and after a suicide on a Swedish internet forum.

Westerlund M, Hadlaczky G, Wasserman D - Br J Psychiatry (2015)

Bottom Line: Using a case report, our aim was to examine the responses, attitudes and beliefs that were communicated on a forum before, during and after a suicide act.We undertook two related analyses: a qualitative investigation of the messages that were posted before the suicide and a combined qualitative-quantitative analysis of the messages posted during and after the suicide.It is of great importance to increase awareness of suicide signals and understanding about how to respond to individuals who communicate suicide intentions on different forums on the internet.
