Red Alert System for Suicide Prevention

On Saturday, November 5th, at 10:22 PM, my friend posted this on Facebook: 

"someone save me from myself..."

https://www.facebook.com/jen.sloe/posts/2630284639088

No one saw this post and Jen completed suicide by jumping from her apartment window.

Therefore I propose that all social networks introduce a system for flagging statements that approximate suicidal thoughts and/or feelings. 

If someone posts anything that could be taken as a suicidal statement - all of their friends should be sent an immediate text and/or e-mail to alert them to the statement so that loved ones, friends, and family can act on their post - to try and save their life.

 

How often in the news do we hear about those that post on a social networking site before they complete or attempt suicide? 

We should use the power of these social networks to help prevent these deaths from occurring.
