Facebook has expanded its suicide prevention tools and, now, users around the world will be able to use them to support friends who they believe are at risk for self-harm or suicide.

The tools were originally released to a limited number of English-language users in the US last year, but as of now, they will be available globally in every language Facebook is available in.

The update – on desktop, mobile and the app – will be a welcome addition to the social media site in a world where, more and more, all of our interactions are moving online.

As well as the global expansion, the new rollout features updates to the existing service, including an expanded set of options for the at-risk user, from reaching out to a friend to contacting helplines.
