World Suicide Prevention Day 2018

Glitch!UK is proud to announce we are taking part in World Suicide Prevention Day. A study found that victims of cyberbullying under the age of 25 are more than twice as likely to self-harm and enact suicidal behaviour. This is why we are getting involved. Our goal is to raise awareness and prevent more young people from feeling this way in the future. Our aim is to get more young people to take part in our Digital Citizenship workshops about digital safety and helping young people navigate the online world confidently, critically and positively. On the lead up to world suicide prevention day we will be signposting to organisations and resources. You can find out more about our Digital Citizenship programme here.
