Reddit has teamed up with Crisis Text Line, a text message-based crisis support hotline to offer support to users who might be suicidal. Reddit users can now flag a fellow user if they think he/she might be struggling with self-harm or suicidal thoughts.

Reported users will get a message in their Reddit inbox. It will explain the various online resources they can turn to for help and instructions on how to contact Crisis Text Line — by texting “CHAT” to 741741.

Notably, several subreddits deal with heavy topics like overcoming abuse. Hence, the company wanted to offer tools to support users who are coping with difficult feelings.
