Facebook continues to do good this week, this time in Australia. It has just announced a hook up with Australian youth mental health charity, Headspace.  From Mashable:

  • If someone thinks another person is considering suicide based on their Facebook posts, they are urged to call emergency services, and also to report it to Facebook.
  • Facebook claims to have teams working around the clock to review the reports. Depending on the seriousness of the threat, those assessing the posts can encourage the author to speak to a mental health expert through a private pop-up message or to reach out to a friend, or even provide advice on how to come to terms with their feelings.
