The article analyzes the experience of using digital technologies in the prevention and rehabilitation of persons with suicidal behavior in Russia and abroad. Potential dangers and opportunities when using Internet resources in matters of suicidology have been identified. Against the background of a large amount of information about destructive behavior, there is a general lack of Internet resources based on the recommendations of the World Health Organization (mandatory content of information on the provision of psychological and psychotherapeutic assistance, warning about the features of the content, the absence of cultural and religious stereotypes, the absence of devaluation of factors of suicide focused on myths and stereotypes). Online communication is an adequate tool for solving the problem of rehabilitation of young people with suicidal behavior in connection with its actual role of socialization. A review of special sites and applications in the Internet space indicates an acute shortage of resources for persons prone to auto-aggressive behavior, which determines the tasks of digital support of the rehabilitation process. The analysis of the resources showed the absence of web platforms based on official providers of medical and social assistance, which is an important medical and social problem, defining the primary state task in the healthcare sector.
