A very important notice for all young people. Weve just been made aware of this video. Please consider carefully your or your young persons access to social media over the coming days.

For more information read the post from our friends at Australian Theatre for Young People (atyp). TIKTOK PSA Content warning: suicide. TikTok has warned users of a video circulating on the platform which shows a man dying by suicide.

The Verge reports the video, which was originally live-streamed on Facebook, appeared on the platform Sunday night. Users say trolls have embedded the clip in the middle of ordinary TikTok footage in an attempt to surprise viewers with footage of the mans death. Please be careful while scrolling through your feed, or take some time away from the app for the next 24 hours.
