Resources for people who have suicidal thoughts and those who care about them.
An estimated one million people or more die by suicide each year. Experts say that one of the best ways to help prevent suicide is for those in distress to hear from people who care about them. Facebook is uniquely positioned – we provide people who have expressed suicidal thoughts with a number of support options – to reach out to a friend, contact a helpline or see positive information. We’re also committed to building sophisticated technologies such as machine learning to get timely help to people in need.
