Facebook has launched a new feature across the UK to help users who feel suicidal.

Facebookers can now report posts that they feel worried about in a more direct way.

Instead of filtering through the "I don't like this because..." options, now users have the opportunity to report suicidal posts straight to Facebook.

Facebook have teamed up with the Samaritans in order to help users get help faster and help prevent a tragedy before it's too late.

So what happens if I get reported?

Facebook will alert you that someone has reported your post because they are worried about you, the whole alert is confidential and its up to you whether you take the help or not. Facebook will not tell you who reported you but the idea behind it is that the user will then know that someone cares about them enough to get help for them.

Suicidal posts are prioritised and help options are sent to those people who Facebook think are struggling to cope.

Julie De Bailliencourt, in charge of safety at Facebook says: "We worked with organisations including Samaritans to develop these tools, and one of the first things they told us was how much connecting with people who care can help those who are struggling to cope - whether offline or online."
