TikTok Address the Impact of Mental Health on its Users

TikTok is taking a keen interest in the mental health and wellbeing of its users. The short video application is implementing measures to tackle the issue of mental health. 

TikTok has announced on Tuesday to put in place tactics to educate its users about the negative impact s of mental health on social media.  

The platfom is rolling out a “well-being guide” in its Safety Centre, a brief primer on eating disorders, expanded search interventions and opt-in viewing screens on potentially triggering searches.

TikTok developed the well being guide in collaboration with mental health groups such as International Association for Suicide Prevention and Crisis Text Line to mention a few. 

The platform says the new well being guide offers more targeted advice toward people using TikTok, encouraging users to consider how it might impact them to share their mental health stories on a platform where any post has the potential to go viral. 

TikTok wants users to think about why they’re sharing their experience, if they’re ready for a wider audience to hear their story if sharing could be harmful to them and if they’re prepared to hear others’ stories in response.
