REACHING OUT TO OUR YOUNG ONES
HELP123 – SINGAPORE’S FIRST CYBER WELLNESS HOTLINE
Today, we are witnessing high internet penetration rates and adoption of smartphones and other digital devices. While technology has created significant benefits, it has also resulted in new challenges concerning cyber wellness, especially cyber bullying and excessive internet use among children and youth who are exposed to technology from a very young age.
Help123 is the first one-stop platform in Singapore that brings together the people, public and private sectors to address cyber wellness issues. Youth, family members and educators can interact with trained counsellors through web chat, phone or email on their cyber concerns and be connected with appropriate support services.
Singtel is proud to be the strategic partner of this programme with Touch Cyber Wellness in an effort to promote awareness on cyber wellness issues.
