Facebook Launches Suicide Prevention Tool
Facebook has launched a new support tool to help people who may be feeling suicidal. Seeing a friend post a cry for help on Facebook can be scary — especially if you’re unsure of what to do. But now, instead of just reporting the post to Facebook and hoping for the best, Facebook has created a new tool that aims to give friends and family more resources when they think a loved one needs help.
Facebook partnered with the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, Suicide Awareness Voices of Education and Forefront to develop the initiative. The Facebook Help Center can provide the specifics on how to use this Facebook tool.
We also remind you that CLM Emergency Services is available 24/7 by calling 603-434-1577, option 1.
