Under the new Education Department guidelines, teachers now play an important role in monitoring their students’ social media update. The mandate encouraged teachers to work closely with the relatives and family members of students whom they think have the tendency to commit suicide. The intervention step also empowers the teachers to help students address their feelings that they just seem comfortable to talk about over social media. Using different social media platforms, teachers can reach to their students’ feelings and address misleading information, especially when it regards the deceased suicide victim. A helpline is also issued where teachers can call in case of student’s suicide incident.
