Instagram in support of mental health

Of interest, lately Instagram has been using their platform to support mental health by connecting you to community resources. As the co-founder and CEO Kevin Systrom outlined in a press release: 

"If you see a post on Instagram from someone who may be in need of mental health support, you can report it anonymously. The next time that person logs into the app, we will connect them to organizations in their country that offer help. We have teams working 24 hours a day, seven days a week to review these reports. We also display these resources when someone visits a hashtag page for a sensitive topic."

This is a great initiative and has the potential to help a lot of people! #hereforyou
