Suicide & self-harm

We work to foster a supportive and welcoming community. We hope that the cool dances, beautiful songs, cute animals, stunning scenery, and comedy can bring happiness to people on our platform. But sometimes, loneliness and stress are hard to avoid. If you or someone you may know are having a tough time or contemplating self-harm, we want you to know that help is available.

Media literacy

TikTok is a place where people can learn more about the world around them. To help people explore TikTok safely, we’ve partnered with the National Association for Media Literacy Education (NAMLE) to create a safety video series, called “Be Informed,” which shows our community how to help keep TikTok a place where authentic content can thrive, provide advice on how to evaluate content online, and use those skills and TikTok’s in-app features to help protect against the inadvertent spread of misleading information.

Media literacy is an important building block for an informed online experience. Being media literate means having the ability to access, analyze, evaluate, create, and act using all forms of communication. Learn more
