Worried about a friend's post? Here's what to do

If you are worried about something that a friend has posted on social media and you think they may come to harm then there are things you can do.

Instagram and Facebook both have a suicide prevention tool that lets you report a post to them, and they will then contact your friend offering them help. This might be giving the details of the Samaritans helpline for example.

Find out more about Instagram help here and Facebook help here.

Currently there’s no tool like this on Snapchat, so you could talk to a trusted adult for advice if you don’t want to say anything to your friend, or if you’re really worried call 999.

It can be hard to know what to say when friends come to you with problems or when you think they may be struggling.

Epic Friends is great for tips on how to look out for your friends or visit or call 116 123.
