Facebook, Messenger Team Up With World Health Organization for World Mental Health Day

$1 will be donated to a group of organizations for each use of a Let’s Talk sticker

Facebook teamed up with the World Health Organization on a Let’s Talk filter for Stories on Facebook and Messenger for World Mental Health Day Thursday.

The social network said the filter acts as an invitation for close connections who may be struggling to reach out for support via the messaging application.

Facebook also released a Let’s Talk sticker pack for Messenger, with 16 stickers that can be used to take the place of words when they are hard to come by.

Every time one of those stickers is sent, Facebook will donate $1, up to $1 million, to a group of mental health organizations: Caritas (Hong Kong), Crisis Text Line, It’s OK to Talk (Sangath), The Jed Foundation, The Live Love Laugh Foundation, ReachOut (Australia), Save, The Trevor Project, Vibrant Emotional Health and Youthline.
