How It Works
If you see something concerning on our platform and you believe someone is in imminent danger, you should call your local emergency services immediately.
Report: If you are worried that a friend or family member may cause self-harm or is suicidal report the content to Facebook
- To report a post, click on the top right of the post and choose the option that best describes the issue, then follow the on-screen instructions. Learn more about reporting other types of content.
- If you’ve reported something, you have the option to check the status of your report from your Support Inbox. Only you can see your Support Inbox. We don’t include any information about the person who filed the report when we reach out to the person responsible.
- Next time a friend or family member logs in they will see the suicide prevention flow that encourages them to connect with a mental health expert.
Support: It can be very hard to know what to say to someone who’s told you that they’re considering suicide, or who seems to be thinking about it but may not have told you directly. We’ve worked with suicide prevention experts to help you understand some of the best ways to support a person who’s having suicidal thoughts.
