Hi Everyone,

Trigger warning – this thread talks about self-harm/suicide so please only read if you feel able to. If there’s anything you’ve found upsetting in this thread, please do reach out for support with us or you can phone Samaritans on 116 123.

We have a chance to feed into how Instagram and Facebook communicates with people who are trying to view or post content which contains images of self-harm.  

We have until 4 pm today to feedback your thoughts on the wording.  You can do that by completing this form.

Please don't share this around as it is still confidential.  This form is specifically about the wording on the warning messages.  If your there is a more public discussion going on over here, where your welcome to tell us what you think of the changes as a whole :) 

Thank you, and we are looking forward to hearing your thoughts. 

Italia & The Team. 
We're @Mike, @Italia and @Ed - the staff team here at The Mix. We don't provide support via this account, but if you have any questions about the boards or need a hand finding your way around, feel free to drop us a message. Alternatively, you can head over to the Help Desk.

    Aw I missed this, I didn't see it before 4pm. It's really fantastic that this community has been able to have a say though :)
