Starting on Wednesday, Facebook is rolling out a new feature for suicide prevention.

The social media site is partnering with Now Matters Now, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, and Forefront: Innovations in Suicide Prevention, a nonprofit operating out of the University of Washington’s School of Social Work, to give users more options when they see a friend post something that is concerning. It works on both desktop and mobile.
