The three ways a person can get resources on Facebook desktop are:
- Clicking “Report” on the upper-right corner of a post: in addition to resources and the option to submit a report, we also provide a suggested Facebook message for a person to send directly to their friend letting them know their concern.
- Searching “Suicide” in the search bar.
- Going to the Facebook Help Center and typing “suicide.”
On mobile, people can also report suicidal content in a post directly from their phone.
The World Health Organization reports that every year almost one million people die from suicide. That is tragic. And the impact goes much further—studies show that each suicide intimately affects at least 6 other people. That means that globally, the impact of suicide is felt deeply by many millions of people each year.Please read and share this information with as many people as you can--you could literally save a life!
