eveningecho.ie: Call to ban websites promoting suicide


Internet sites that support or encourage suicide should be banned or at least have stringent controls placed on them, a report recommended today.
Academics researching the growing social problem also called for more professional support services to help save the lives of those contemplating suicide.
Their study for the University of Ulster also urged the establishment of a national database on suicide incidents to discover the reasons why people take their own lives - and also to monitor the efficacy of measures to stop them.
