Headline regularly contacts media sources to comment on media coverage. Let us know if you come across any media coverage on mental health or suicide that you feel is particularly negative or positive. We may then contact the source involved and add it to our Headline media alerts. While we are concerned mainly with press coverage, television and radio, we would also be interested in hearing from you about other types of media such as advertising, packaging, cinema releases and websites.
When you contact us about a media piece it helps us to do our job more efficiently if you:
- Include as much information about the piece as possible (i.e. date, publication, journalist, topic).
- If possible, please send us a copy of the piece.
- Contact us within 30 days. The sooner we can respond to a piece, the better.
- Make sure that the coverage was published or broadcast in Ireland.
If you would like to contact us about a media piece, please complete the form. You may remain anonymous if you wish.
