Assignment Fox Cities

     Members of the media and health care providers met this morning to find common ground
in covering stories of mental health issues and suicide.   The ultimate goal of the meeting was
to, hopefully,  prevent others from choosing to end their lives.  We both have an obligation to
work toward that end.
     From the media perspective, we must be more sensitive, compassionate, in the words
we choose to tell our stories.   From the medical side, there is an abundance of resources
available in the Fox Cities to assist those in pain.  Those resources should be part of every
story we generate.
     But  those same rules of sensitvity and compassion should apply to other platforms of
story-telling ---Twitter, Facebook and Blogging --- as well as day-to-day conversation.
      We'll discuss that partnership on a future Assignment Fox Cities.
