Cyberbullying and digital abuse can affect anyone, regardless of their age, gender, profession or social habits.
The internet is now integral to most people’s work, home and social life. While this technological advancement brings many benefits, it must be accompanied by greater vigilance and awareness as to the potential risks involved, and beyond that, capacity to care for those who fall victim to this growing problem.
People who are affected by cyberbullying and online hate campaigns can suffer an array of problems. These can range from social isolation, eating disorders and poor school or work attendance, through to depression, self-harm and suicide.
In addition, there is the pain and frustration experienced by a parent, carer, wife, husband or colleague who has to witness someone close to them suffer bullying and abuse.
Finally, there is also the huge drain on resources for teachers, schools, parents, the police services and other stakeholders – not least within our business communities – in dealing with a problem of this scale.
