Workshop – Mental Health Professionals As Cyber Care Givers

Project Responsible Netism is the only nonprofit initiative within the state launched by Ahaan Foundation to promote cyber wellness and responsible online behaviour among children and adults. Having successfully sensitized 8.5 lakh children and adults within over 800 schools since inception, we have realized that children are the most vulnerable users of the internet while their parents being inexperienced and unprepared are unable to deal with online distress.

Cyber-hype and rumours about games like the blue whale have caused tremendous chaos and panic among children and adults worldwide. We believe that the role of care givers in the field of mental health is extremely crucial in protecting children from further damage. The hype has unfortunately shown results, building curiosity, accepting dares, proving to the world about their strength and courage by inflicting severe self-harm under the pretext of online challenges. The situation is indeed extremely alarming hence needs intervention. Mental health professionals need to gear up to address issues concerning children’s psychological well-being in the digital era.

Team Responsible Netism hosts a half-day workshop called Mental Health Professionals as Cyber Care Givers, to empower them with strategies to overcome this digital mayhem.
