AAS-Recommended Videos

The Purpose of the Video Review Committee

The American Association of Suicidology (AAS) is frequently asked for recommendations for appropriate suicide prevention videos for different kinds of audiences.

The AAS video review committee is made up of AAS members from different professional affiliations and academic backgrounds. Videos are reviewed independently by committee members and scored according to specific criteria. Neither the individual committee members nor AAS receives financial compensation for this activity.

Once the independent scoring is completed, reviewers meet to discuss their scoring and determine a finding of recommended, not recommended, and recommended with minor reservation.
