Facebook wellness guides on Instagram aim to prevent suicides

Facebook said it will take more concrete steps against potentially harmful content along with creating new Instagram wellness guides to help prevent suicides in the COVID-19 times.

Following the release of wellness guides on Instagram, Fcaebook is launching localised guides that address ways to prevent suicide and support those who might be struggling.

“For example, in India, the Suicide Prevention India Foundation’s guide focuses on how to foster social connectedness and in Hong Kong, Samaritans HK’s guide shares ways to check in on your friends,” Facebook said in a blog post on Thursday, the day when the World Suicide Prevention Day was observed.
