Instagram offers anonymous reporting, support systems to help those with mental health issues


Instagram is looking for ways to help anyone suffering from mental health issues, by introducing anonymous reporting and support systems.

Instagram will redirect anyone searching for a banned hashtag such as #thinspo to their support system, Chief Operating Office Marne Levine revealed to Seventeen.

Followers can also send an anonymous report for posts that they feel are related to a mental health issue. An alert would then go to the individual saying: "Someone saw one of your posts and thinks you might be going through a difficult time. If you need support, we'd like to help."

Instagram then will give options for the individual to go through as a way to reach out for help.
