American Association of Suicidology Applauds Netflix & 13 Reasons Why Creators for Removing Graphic Suicide Scene

There is more work to be done throughout the entertainment industry, but it is an encouraging step to see a high profile show making changes for the safety of viewers. ”

— John Ackerman, PhD

WASHINGTON, D.C., UNITED STATES, July 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The American Association of Suicidology (AAS) applauds both Netflix and the creators of the popular series 13 Reasons Why in their decision to remove a graphic suicide depiction from the first season. This is an example of a major player in the entertainment industry responding to research and expert consultation and attempting to mitigate further negative effects. Suicide remains the second leading cause of death for youth ages 15-24, the target demographic for this television series. For those experiencing thoughts of suicide, especially in this age range and those who are already vulnerable, graphic depictions of suicide can significantly increase risk of an attempt.

“Our ongoing conversations with Netflix suggest that they are listening to feedback from the suicide prevention community about what works and doesn’t work in their programming,” says Jonathan Singer, PhD, LCSW, AAS President and Associate Professor in the School of Social Work at Loyla University Chicago. “Some will say that Netflix’s actions are too little too late. I believe that it is never too late to do the right thing in suicide prevention. There are thousands of suicide prevention expert members of AAS who are willing and able to provide consultation to Netflix and other media companies around issues of suicide. We look forward to continuing to work with them, with individual creators, and the entertainment industry to help solidify and strengthen the standards of depicting suicide and related risks in popular content.”

Recent research has shown increases in both suicide attempts in adolescents as well as an increase in emergency department visits of youth in the US following the release of 13 Reasons Why in 2017. While these associations don’t necessarily imply direct causation, the phenomena was concerning to many suicidologists, researchers, and parents across the country. While this decision on the part of Netflix is very welcome, these conversations regarding mental health and suicide messaging certainly need to be prioritized in the creation of future content.

“Partnering with the media to help them portray suicide accurately and in a way that provides hope and resources for those impacted by experiences related to suicide can make a positive difference,” says John Ackerman, PhD, member of AAS’s Communications Committee and Suicide Prevention Coordinator for the Center for Suicide Prevention and Research at Nationwide Children’s Hospital. “There is more work to be done throughout the entertainment industry, but it is an encouraging step to see a high profile show making changes for the safety of viewers. We hope even more research and more media collaboration results from this decision.”

For the Media: Responsible reporting on suicide, including stories of hope and resilience, can prevent more suicides. Please visit the Suicide Reporting Recommendations for more information.

About AAS: Founded in 1968 by Edwin S. Shneidman, PhD, AAS promotes the research of suicide and its prevention, public awareness programs, public education and training for professionals and volunteers. The membership of AAS includes mental health and public health professionals, researchers, suicide prevention and crisis intervention centers, school districts, crisis center volunteers, survivors of suicide loss, attempt survivors, and a variety of lay persons who have in interest in suicide prevention.

The Private Plate Company Celebrates Over 25 Years in the Personalised Number Plate Industry

The Private Plate Company

The Private Plate Company

Company is one of the top leaders of cherished plates in the UK.

Even after all these years I’m still fascinated by number plates and absolutely love helping others to find their dream plate.”

— Martyn Davies

PORT TALBOT, WALES, UK, July 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Private Plate Company is pleased to announce it is celebrating over 25 years as one of the leading cherished number plate companies in the UK.

Since 1993, The Private Plate Company has been providing personalised car registrations to car owners and private plate collectors alike. The company is one of the UK’s longest standing companies in the business of personalised registrations and has sold over 250,000 cherished numbers over the past 25 years.

“When I first started the company, I was fascinated with old number plates and, after selling a cheap number plate of my own, I decided to go into business for myself,” says Martyn Davies, founder of The Private Plate Company. “Even after all these years I’m still fascinated by number plates and absolutely love helping others to find their dream plate.”

To ensure clients are receiving the best customer service possible, The Private Plate Company follows one simple philosophy – “do it once, do it right.”

“Unlike some companies on the market, we would never sell a registration number before ensuring it is 100% available,” states Davies. “All too often we are contacted by customers who have paid for a new registration number with another company, only to be told weeks later that it’s unavailable.”

In an effort to make sure this doesn’t happen to their own clients, The Private Plate Company constantly updates their database and refreshes prices daily. Additionally, the company offers clients a host of other benefits, including:

• No extra hidden fees
• Over 7000 5-star reviews
• No charges for credit card transactions
• Online price discounts
• 0% deposit, low-cost financing over 12, 24, or 36 months

The company is also very well respected within the cherished number plate industry and is recognized by the DVLA as resellers of personalised registrations.

Participants will come together in recognition of 10 years of walking to fight lymphedema and lymphatic diseases.

This year’s Walk in New York is a milestone. We not only mark 10 years of walking for a cure, but we also look back with pride on how far we have come.”

— William Repicci, LE&RN President & CEO

NEW YORK, NY, USA, July 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The very first Walk to Fight Lymphedema & Lymphatic Diseases was held in 2010 on Long Island. It was attended by a small but fiercely committed group of activists, led by LE&RN (then the Lymphatic Research Foundation). Since then, the New York #LymphWalk has been held in New York City, this year in Riverside Park, Manhattan. The event has spread to cities around the country, with dozens of Run/Walks being held over the past decade, drawing thousands of participants and raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for education, research, and advocacy.

“This year’s event will be a 5K Fun Run,” said LE&RN Outreach Director Colleen McGuire. “At the June California LymphWalk, chapter members and attendees sported unique teal clothing and accessories to celebrate our years of accomplishments, and we are looking forward to that spirit infusing this 10th anniversary New York LymphWalk as well.”

LE&RN's Walks provide crucial funding for our programs and research. Just as importantly, they provide an opportunity for our community to come together in support of one another and our common cause. It is also a way to educate the public about LE and LD.” said LE&RN President and CEO William Repicci. “This year’s Walk in New York is a milestone. We not only mark 10 years of walking for a cure, but we also look back with pride on how far we have come. This year, we are thrilled that Montefiore Einstein Center for Cancer Care, one of the nation’s leaders in conducting cutting edge research and delivering outstanding clinical care, has joined us as a Co-Presenting Sponsor.”

In the Know and International Council of Nurses Join Forces to Provide Free Caregiver Training in Developing Countries

Caregivers in developing countries lack critical access to the basic, practical training they need to deliver safe and effective care to the clients they serve.

DURHAM, NC, USA, July 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — People over the age of sixty are the fastest-growing demographic across the globe. This group is projected to increase to 1.4 billion by 2030. And since increasing age often comes with an increased need for healthcare services, the McKinsey Global Institute predicts, “Globally, health care and related jobs from aging could grow by 50 to 85 million by 2030.”

Developing countries are not immune to this phenomenon. Traditionally, care of the elderly in these regions fell on female family members. But as developing nations continue to grow their economies, more women seek work outside of the home, shifting the burden of elder care to outside sources.

Who will fill these jobs, and how will they acquire the necessary training?

The International Council of Nurses (ICN) recently entered into a partnership agreement with The World Continuing Education Alliance (WCEA) to create a global network of continuing education courses to distribute education in developing regions.

In the Know contributed an entire library of courses to the ICN to provide free caregiver training in the developing countries that need it the most.

Through this initiative, caregivers around the world are completing In the Know courses, 100% free of charge. Learners hail from South Africa, Rwanda, Philippines, Kenya, India, Bangladesh, and more.

The most popular In the Know courses completed include:
• Infection Control
• Handwashing
• Understanding Common Medications
• A Vital Signs Update
• Various disease process topics (i.e., diabetes, heart disease, COPD, cancer, etc.)

“We believe in giving back to caregivers everywhere,” remarks Linda Leekley, founder and CEO of In the Know. “Over the years, In the Know has donated thousands of caregiver courses to healthcare organizations in need—whether because of the devastation of a hurricane, the impact of domestic violence, or the growing demand for training in developing nations.”

Linda believes it’s not enough to just run a successful business. She understands that being part of a project that helps train caregivers across the globe has even farther-reaching benefits. It shines a much-needed light on the importance of caregivers by assisting them in growing and developing professionally. And it means the clients in their care stay safer and healthier—and in their own homes for as long as possible.
In the Know plans to maintain its relationship with ICN and the WCEA for years to come to provide much-needed training to the caregivers who work so hard for the world’s most vulnerable seniors.

ABOUT THE INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL OF NURSES: The International Council of Nurses (ICN) is a federation of more than 130 national nurses associations representing the millions of nurses worldwide. Operated by nurses and leading nursing internationally, ICN works to ensure quality care for all and sound health policies globally.

ABOUT IN THE KNOW: In the Know is a nationally recognized training provider with over 20 years of experience in helping the aging care market train, engage and RETAIN caregivers. What makes In the Know unique? All their training materials are written by registered nurses who have trained and supervised caregivers in every environment—from the college classroom to the client’s kitchen table. And every course is developed by a skilled team of instructional designers who know how important it is for learning to be interactive, engaging—and frankly—fun!
