Facebook and Forefront Collaborate to Prevent Suicide

Facebook and Forefront have created a tool that allows people to notify Facebook easily when they see a post that may indicate that its author is suicidal. The user who notified Facebook will immediately be offered a number of options to help the person who may be at risk (such as messaging that person, contacting a Facebook friend for support, or reaching out to a professional or crisis hotline). In addition, Facebook staff will review the post that raised the concern and, if appropriate, initiate a mechanism that automatically and confidentially offers suggestions for getting help the next time the author of that post logs in.
