Facebook improves efforts to prevent suicide
If you've spent enough time on Facebook, you've almost certainly seen someone display signs of depression or reach out for help, and you may have seen someone threaten suicide. For several years, Facebook has been implementing various suicide prevention measures. In 2011, the social media giant partnered with Samaritans to enable U.K. users to submit reports on friends in danger of harming themselves. Now, in collaboration with the group Forefront: Innovations in Suicide Prevention from the University of Washington's School of Social Work, Facebook has made it simpler to help people who may be suicidal.
