How to report threats of suicide or self-harm

If you encounter a direct threat of suicide or self-harm on Disqus, please contact local law enforcement as soon as possible. 

You can submit reports of suicidal content to Disqus by flagging the user for "Threat - posted directly threatening content" by following: https://help.disqus.com/customer/en/portal/articles/1774987-user-flagging

After we have evaluated a report of self-harm or suicide, Disqus will contact the reported user privately via email to provide them with online resources where they can seek help.
