Prevention: 5 Action Steps for Helping Someone in Emotional Pain:

  • Ask: “Are you thinking about killing yourself?” It’s not an easy question but studies show that asking at-risk individuals if they are suicidal does not increase suicides or suicidal thoughts.

  • Keep them safe: Reducing a suicidal person’s access to highly lethal items or places is an important part of suicide prevention. While this is not always easy, asking if the at-risk person has a plan and removing or disabling the lethal means can make a difference.

  • Be there: Listen carefully and learn what the individual is thinking and feeling. Findings suggest acknowledging and talking about suicide may in fact reduce rather than increase suicidal thoughts.

  • Help them connect: Save the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline’s number in your phone so it’s there when you need it: 1-800-8255 (TALK). You can also help make a connection with a trusted individual like a family member, friend, spiritual advisor, or mental health professional. If you are outside of the U.S., please visit the International Association for Suicide Prevention for a database of international resources.

  • Stay Connected: Staying in touch after a crisis or after being discharged from care can make a difference. Studies have shown the number of suicide deaths goes down when someone follows up with the at-risk person

It may also be helpful to save several emergency numbers to your cell phone. The ability to get immediate help for yourself or for a friend can make a difference.

  • The phone number for a trusted friend or relative

  • The non-emergency number for the local police department

  • The Crisis Text Line: 741741

  • The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-TALK (8255)

How to block & report on social media


In the app

  • Go to any post by the bully.

  • Click the three dots to the right of their screen name.

  • Tap Unfollow, Report, Restrict, or Mute. (Mute hides the person's post from your feed but keeps you as a friend/follower, and Restrict makes their comments on your posts only visible to them unless you approve it and they won't see when you're active or if you've read their DMs).

The bully won't get a notification that you've blocked them, but they won't be able to see your profile, posts, or stories. They will also see "User Not Found" instead of "Follow," and can still see your comments and likes on public posts. They can also still mention you unless you change your username.


To block, report, or remove a person:

  • Tap their profile picture.

  • Tap the three dots in the upper right corner.

  • Tap Report if you want to alert Snapchat to that person's actions in the app.

  • Tap Block if you don't want the other person to view your Stories or Charms or send you Snaps or Chats.

  • Tap Remove if you don't want the other person to see your private Stories or Charms (they'll still be able to view your public content, though).

  • Note: If you want to prevent a person you've removed from contacting you or seeing your story, go to the "Who Can…" section in Settings and set each category to "My Friends."

To report a Story or Snap or hide something in Discover:

  • Tap and hold a Snap or Story until the little white flag appears in the bottom left corner; tap the flag, and then choose the reason you're reporting the content.

  • To hide something in Discover (if it's offensive, offers products, or just isn't interesting), tap and hold the tile, and then choose Hide.
