The idea for the new stickers and filters is tied to research commissioned by the social network showing how private messaging can make it easier to chat about tough topics, Antigone Davis, the head of global safety for Facebook, said in an interview. People in the UK, US and Australia who were surveyed said they felt like they could talk more openly through messaging than in person.

Facebook released the new tools in honor of World Mental Health Day, which happens every year on Oct. 10 to raise awareness about mental health. The World Health Organization helped Facebook with the new filter and is encouraging people to take "40 seconds of action" to talk about mental health and help reduce the stigma surrounding suicide. One person dies every 40 seconds from suicide, according to WHO.
