Mental illness and suicide are tragically common among teens and young adults, and those who are affected by them deserve compassion and professional help. The "No Respect For Suicidal Teens" Facebook page is full of hateful posts about teenagers who take their own lives, calling them "selfish," "ignorant," "irrelevant assholes." See the page here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/No-Respect-For-Suicidal-Teens/430319010354736, and a second one here: http://www.facebook.com/NoRespectForTeenSuicide

After reporting the page to the Facebook team, I received an email that stated the following:

"Thanks for your recent report of a potential violation on Facebook. After reviewing your report, we were not able to confirm that the specific page you reported violates Facebook's Statement of Rights and Responsibilities."

However, the Statement of Rights and Responsibilities states:

"6. You will not bully, intimidate, or harass any user.
7. You will not post content that: is hate speech, threatening, or pornographic; incites violence; or contains nudity or graphic or gratuitous violence."

We believe that the "No Respect For Suicidal Teens" Facebook page is violating these terms by bullying, intimidating, and harassing teens who are suffering from mental illness and are considering taking their own lives. Furthermore, we believe that it qualifies as hate speech against people with mental illnesses. The page also attempts to incite suicidal teens to kill themselves with posts that say things like "go drink some bleach," and it also contains racist material.

A page like this has no place on Facebook. Please remove it.

      Facebook finally took the page down yesterday! However, they only disabled the personal account of the person who made it for a few hours, and now it's back up here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/No-Respect-For-Suicidal-Teens/527422947277609?fref=ts

      Please keep reporting it. If Facebook keeps taking it down, the creator will give up eventually.

      It is in violation (i.e. hate speech, incites violence , bullying , and intimidation to those teens are suffering from depression and suicidal ideation.) I work directly with suicidal teens as a MFTI, and this facebook page does present to directly intimidate those who are clinically ill that they are worthless.
