How do I help a member of the US military community (example: active soldier, veteran or family member) who has shared suicidal content on Instagram?
If a friend or family member is planning suicide or you've seen a direct threat of suicide on Instagram, please contact your local emergency services or a suicide hotline immediately. We also ask that you tell us if you see something that suggests suicide or self-injury on Instagram.
