Bark’s suicidal ideation notifications enabled one family to get their son the help he needed before tragedy struck.
After experiencing extreme bullying, Sam had started googling things related to suicide. Fortunately, his mom got a Bark alert and was able to intervene.
Laura had no idea what was going on in her son’s digital world. She was shocked when Bark notified her that he was researching suicide.
She credits Bark with preventing the unthinkable. Because of this alert, she was able to get him the support he needed.
When Bark’s advanced technology detects potential suicidal ideation, it triggers a timely alert to the parent so they can check in and make sure everything’s okay.
The family continues to use Bark to monitor for dangers and open up discussions about hard — and important — conversations together.
Bark’s advanced technology monitors your child’s texts, emails, and social media platforms for warning signs of suicidal ideation (and other issues).
