Snapchat introduces mental health support tool for everyone

Snap is rolling out its Here For You search tool a bit earlier than planned to help users who may be feeling anxious or stressed over the coronavirus pandemic, the company says. The Here For You tool was first announced in February, and it’s designed to surface “safety resources” from mental health experts when users search for topics like anxiety, depression, suicide, or bullying.

Originally slated for an April release, Snap expects the search tool to be available to all Snapchat users next week.
Snapchat has one of the youngest audiences of any social media platform. It reaches 90 percent of 13- to 24-year-olds, a group especially vulnerable to bullying or suggestive content.
