Abstract: In this century, suicide has become a national and global public concern problem. The World Health Organization as well as the Ministry of Public Health of Ecuador have developed different strategies so the citizens become aware that there are several internal and external factors that influence a person to choose this route, so it cannot be taken lightly this situation. In this context, the media in Ecuador share the responsibility of truly communicating and not just making yellow journalism about suicide. That is why, for the present work, the two journalistic portals with the best positioning in the Alexa ranking until March 2021 were chosen: El Comercio and El Universo. 146 articles published on the websites of both brands were chosen, whose contents were analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively, considering parameters such as gender, words that induce suicide, narrative of the suicidal act, among others. These parameters were established based on suicide journalism manuals created by international NGOs and other world-renowned media. Likewise, this work emphasizes that there is a correlation between how suicide is communicated and the impact it can have on audiences. Such an impact can be positive when the media has prevention policies and helps the reader with suicidal tendencies and her family, or it can be negative if it offers a lot of information about the method used by the person who committed suicide.
