StigmaWatch recognises The Australian for recent improvement in its coverage of stories regarding suicide.

On several occasions this year StigmaWatch has been in contact with the national publication's editorial department, requesting the removal of details from articles and the addition of helplines to suicide-related stories.

Following recognition of recent failures to include crisis helplines in suicide-related stories, The Australian's Deputy Editor confirmed their "commitment to include this information on all stories of this nature in the future".
