Social media effectively came to the rescue of a Delhi girl who was on the verge of committing suicide. In a post on Snapchat, the 20-year-old spoke about her intention of committing suicide because she was pregnant and was worried about her family’s ‘reputation’.

The girl posted this message on The Artidote’s Snapchat account, and the community’s supportive responses actually helped prevent a tragedy.
