To register for the webinar, please click here. Amanda Todd s suicide in 2012 created a major stir in the mass media regarding cyberbullying and suicide. Many felt this media coverage would incite further suicides. However,the notion of social media and its influence on today s youth cannot be ignored as a source of contagion. Social media and the internet are not only the sources of information for most young people but the platforms for much of their social interaction as well(including expressions of suicidal behaviours).
