”Please, please, please, don’t take your only life" : A critical discourse analysis of the communication about suicide on Flashback (English)
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper was to examine the communication around the subject of suicide on the Swedish online message board Flashback Forum. By doing a case study and a critical discourse analysis, we wanted to get answers about how the conversation between individuals who are suicidal and members on Flashback appeared, and if there were any distinct discourses to be seen in the conversation. Three threads started by individuals with suicidal thoughts were chosen to be analysed, which all in all were 474 answers. The result of the analysis showed three distinct discourses in the posts written by members on Flashback: preventive, critical and pro suicide.

Genom att göra en fallstudie, samt en kritisk diskursanalys ville vi får svar på hur samtalet mellan personer med självmordstankar och de bemötande såg ut, och om det gick att se några tydliga diskurser i samtalen. Tre olika trådar skapade av personer med självmordstankar valdes ut för analys, vilket gav 474 svar. Analysen resulterade i att det gick att tyda tre synliga diskurser i inläggen skrivna av medlemmarna på Flashback: preventiv, kritisk- och prosuicid diskurs.
