The Roblox Suicidal Help Message is a notice that the official ROBLOX account sends to you directly by message. The establishment of this letter was created due to many users posting/uploading disturbing games, T-Shirts, and Shirts that ultimately concerned the staff and moderators. Users would most commonly publish deep phrases and images to Roblox in order to express their feelings, the main issue being suicide. As a part of Roblox's goal to maintain a safe and happy community, an automatic message is sent out to users who utilize Roblox to articulate their struggles with life and possibly the intent of ending their own life. The clear purpose of this message is to encourage them to stop sharing it on the site, and rather reach out for help otherwise. Whenever it is safe to tell that this person is solemn about their feelings, it would be sent to them personally.
The current version of this message reads:
Hello, it sounds like you’re going through a really tough time. You should talk to an adult you trust, like your parents or a teacher. You’re not alone; it really helps to reach out, so please talk to someone.
- The Roblox Team
