What organizations can provide support if someone shares an intimate image of myself or a friend on Instagram without permission?

If you, or your friend, are being harassed or harmed online, these organizations should be able to provide support. Many of them offer resources and support specifically for situations when intimate images have been shared without consent. Contact them if you, or a friend, need support. If you're concerned about a friend, please encourage them to reach out directly to the organization as well.

If you or a friend are having thoughts about suicide or self-injury, please contact local emergency services or a suicide helpline instead.
