How To Report A Suicide Status Message On Facebook

Posted Mar 13, 2011

Facebook now has over 500 million and it is rather difficult for staff members to monitor every potential suicide note. Often times before a Facebook user commits suicide, they write depressing status messages and links. If you know someone that starts doing this, then Facebook makes it easier to report the behavior. You can save a life this way. Here is how you report a suicide status:

1.) Go to the Help Center at:

2.) Type in “suicide” in the Search form.

3.) You will notice the first result is “How do I help someone who has posted suicidal content on the site?” There are contact hotlines for reporting suicidal content.

4.) Once you report the case to Facebook and the suicidal awareness hotlines, someone will attempt to reach out to the suicidal person with the hopes of changing their minds.
