Suicide, while a serious and tragic issue, is often misrepresented in the media. Whether its the newspaper, television or any other outlet, the focus is too often on the negative outcomes and impacts rather than on the support available to enable suicide survivors, attempt survivors and suicide prevention supporters.

Enter LifelifeGallery.org, a new social online forum to help prevent suicide.

In this week’s Disease Management Update, I interview Dr. John Draper, director of the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, and Amanda Lehner, technology communications coordinator for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, about this new initiative. In addition, find out how MySpace is reaching out to its users coping with depression.
