Protect your mental health and physical wellbeing
We see young people these days as tech-savvy but that does not mean they are safe online. The internet can be a scary and dangerous place when we are targeted by somebody with poor intentions. Whether it’s gaming, social media or surfing the web, the age of Internet users is dropping annually which unfortunately makes more and more young people vulnerable to attacks on their mental health and physical wellbeing. The fact is many adults have proved to be vulnerable to cyber-attacks so how can we expect young people to be better? Well, the answer is we teach them how to protect both their mental health and physical wellbeing while they are online. AS we all work either on a one to one or in group settings with young people, we feel we have an opportunity to educate young people and their parents on how to become less vulnerable online.
What should you do?
If you find yourself getting upset or have seen something upsetting, always report to a parent or someone you trust.
