  • Facebook Suicide Prevention Tool Rolled Out on a Worldwide Level

Facebook has launched a suicide prevention tool of sorts. This service got rolled out on a worldwide level.

Facebook is to open up its anti-suicide toolkit to the rest of the world. This decision was taken by the administration of Facebook yesterday. This of course is an attempt at lightening the burden for those who are considering harming themselves or who have friends who plan on ending their lives.

Often you find such postings on the Internet by users which show in clear words that they intend to end it all. This should be seen as a warning sign of potential suicide and paid heed to. Those who express suicidal tendencies often finish the job one day. Such a tragedy is to be avoided no matter what the cost.  

The suicide prevention tool of Facebook has already been a huge success in the United States. Suicide is basically a by-product of isolation (real or perceived) and has been called the most extreme and individualistic act on earth.

While self-preservation is the first law of life, those who try to take their own lives tend to have something wrong with their psyches. Something has seriously gone wrong with their thinking processes and so they need help and a shoulder to cry on. 

The team of experts at Facebook will gauge the level of self-loathing and self-hatred the person expressing suicidal ideation shows and act accordingly. Timely intervention is the best remedy.

Facebook will lend an ear and give appropriate alternatives to the person contemplating suicide. A support system will be put in place and any friends, family members or acquaintances will be informed of the impending danger.

A friend whom you could trust in will be provided. Helplines will be ready so that the suicidal victims can talk out their frustrations and tensions. Also tips will be given to cope with the pain and sense of womb, doom and gloom that suicidal thoughts bring in their tow.   

Facebook is a social media behemoth and it has a reputation as a connector of people. While some of these modern connections are superficial in nature, any connection is better than the death-like seriousness and pain of social isolation.

Suicide occurs when a mind is left to its own devices. It is a prison house of morbid thoughts and immobilizes one’s ability to act normally in life and go with the flow.

Therefore suicidal people need all the help and healing that we can give them. Several organizations have chipped into this enterprise to help the suicidally depressed and bring hope and happiness into their lives.

Life is beautiful and suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Everybody goes through tough times in life. The thing is to hang in there when the going gets tough and rely on one’s near and dear ones for support and sympathy.
