Copycat Suicide[edit | edit source]

Copycat suicide (also known as the Werther Effect or suicide contagion) refers to an increase in suicide attempts and completions following exposure to a suicide either through the media or in a personal circle.[1] The suicide of a well-known celebrity has been shown to be correlated with a rise in suicide attempts, an effect that was seen following the death of actor Robin Williams.[2] To learn more, see the resources below:

A suicide contagion effect was sparked with the release of the TV show 13 Reasons Why in 2017.[3] HGAPS (Helping Give Away Psychological Science) has several pages regarding the mental health implications of the TV show. For more information, see below:
