People often give me odd looks of compassion when I say that I have been in therapy since I was a young kid. They'll often ask me what happened to me that made me decide to start therapy or if my personal life is that crazy that it put me in therapy. But the truth is, it's neither of those things.
Facebook's new "flag" policy for threats of self-harm strikes me as an efficient, measured approach that manages to offer timely help while also respecting the privacy of the people making the alleged threats. The trouble, as always, is interpreting what constitutes a threat.
