Concerned for someone online?

When you see someone online who's expressing suicidal thoughts. How can you help? You're no expert in suicide prevention.

Here's some things to keep in mind:

You *are* an expert on your friends. You know when something's not right.

Take them seriously. If you're wrong, no big deal. If you're right, you could save their life.

You might notice that these sites use language like "report" or "abuse," which makes it sound like someone's going to get in trouble if you reach out. This couldn't be farther from the truth.

Behind every username is a real human being, and behind every social network is a group of real people who care about you and your safety.

Here's how to get help for a friend on all the major social networking sites.
