To mark World Mental Health Day 2022, Cybersmile is launching a multi-channel campaign to raise awareness of the importance of digital wellbeing.
The campaign activities will encourage internet users from around the world to be mindful of the risks associated with online life and make available new digital wellbeing educational resources to provide internet users with simple tools to safeguard themselves and their mental health from some of the risks associated with time spent online.
World Mental Health Day brings together organizations, governments, stakeholders and the public to highlight mental health issues around the world. To coincide with this year’s event, Cybersmile will be revealing a number of initiatives and new resources to help internet users navigate online life and help them remain mindful of the impact that our connected world can have on our mental health.
“World Mental Health Day reminds us that we all have mental health and that we all need to be mindful of the things that can negatively affect it. We are proud to be launching our international campaign today which focuses on digital wellbeing, a key area when considering mental health in 2022.”
Dan Raisbeck, Co-founder, The Cybersmile Foundation
