Suicide content helpline banner
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Category
Victim-focused tools

Motivation
Wikipedia content is a fairly well-understood major resource for people in advance stages of suicidal thought on their journey towards enacting such intentions. Industry best practices is to offer a warning / support resources on top of such content and connect vulnerable readers through geo-located hotlines to support services.
RfC failed because:

  1. DocJames opposed and made an alternate proposal that passed
  2. No disclaimers policy on enwiki

Dependencies
Legal, Public Policy, T&S, En.WP

Community Risk
Medium

Impact
High

Notes
Leighanna has done some scoping, the board has discussed this issue, and external experts are ready to help.

Potential Options

Event Timeline

RFC mentioned above, and more discussion of adding a crisis hotline. I'm not totally clear on what Doc James's suggestion was though.
