Facebook has said it will roll out its suicide prevention tools and resources around the world. Already available in the U.S., the resources are designed to help members who may be thinking about committing suicide or otherwise hurting themselves, as well as family and friends who are concerned about their loved ones’ well being.
Members can use the updated resources either to contact the vulnerable person directly or to contact Facebook, which has teams of workers dedicated to making sure a Facebook member in distress is able to find help.
