How are young people today supported to stay safe online and at the same time be shown consideration for the mental health and wellbeing impact that an incident may have?
Preventative measures to keep young people safe and secure online are nothing new but what should a young person do if something has gone wrong?

We will discuss ways of helping overcome any barriers that may prevent them maintaining their online presence, including ways to help them stay safe and secure online, whilst supporting them with any trauma and wellbeing related issues.
