Auto-Ferimento Recursos

Nós valorizamos nossas turmas e os Yakkers que as tornam únicas e maravilhosas. Queremos que cada membro de turma se sinta seguro e bem-vindo. Se vir um post que indique que um usuário está em perigo físico, entre em contato com uma autoridade local imediatamente. 

If you are concerned but don’t think there is a threat of immediate physical harm, you might extend a helping hand by responding directly to the user. Some suggestions from the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline include showing the person that you are interested, willing to listen, non-judgmental, and available to provide support. You may also want to point the user to the Lifeline's website, where they can find resources and ways to call or chat confidentially with a trained crisis counselor, at http://www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org/.

Here are some additional organizations that offer resources for you and the user you want to help:

Note: Yik Yak does not allow phone numbers in local feeds, so it is always best to point a user to a website address from the list above, where they can find resources including phone, text, or online chat options.
