If you are in need of support, it can be helpful to talk to somebody like a family member, a friend or confidant, or a counselor about what you are going through. For self-help, we are partnering with Koko to provide the following free mini-courses:
Supporting the VSCO Community
We do our best to support and protect our VSCO community by prohibiting content that features, glorifies, or encourages self-harm. If you come across content that you believe may be triggering to an individual of the VSCO community going through a hard time please report it to us so that our Trust & Safety Team can review and take the proper action.
If you are concerned about somebody else, contacting them personally and encouraging them to get specialized support may be helpful. Even if you don’t know the person, letting them know that you are concerned and referring them to a mental health support organization can be helpful. You may also contact us to report the content that’s causing you concern on VSCO by clicking on the button “Report > Self-harm or Suicidal” on the web or in the app.
If you believe another VSCO creator is an immediate risk to themselves please contact your local law enforcement.
Additional Mental Health Resources
If you are in need of support, please know that you’re not alone and that immediate help is available for you.
