Visit Instagram Help Centre for support on how to report, and follow the steps on the document to report on the platform.
What happens next?
By ﬂagging the post anonymously, your child’s friend will be sent a support message that reads: “Someone saw one of your posts and thinks you might be going through a difficult time. If you need support, we’d like to help.”
They will be taken to a list of support options, which includes a suggestion to message or call a friend,
access more general tips, and support or contact a helpline.
The app also directs users to the support message if they search for certain hashtags associated with
harmful behaviours like eating disorders.
