On Monday, April 22, 2013, the WPS issued a press release announcing that it’s proud to support the latest tool to help teens manage the impacts of cyberbullying.

The release provided the following information;

“Using the hashtag #YouthAreNotAlone, Canadian musicians and politicians took to the Twittersphere and Facebook yesterday during the Juno Awards to support youth and spread the word about the Canadian Centre for Child Protection’s new resource for youth, NeedHelpNow.ca.  The website is designed to help Canadian youth deal with the negative consequences of the creation and distribution of sexual images online by providing information to youth who have been negatively impacted by a sexual picture or video of themselves being shared by peers.”

A quick trip to the Need Help Now site shows a wealth of information under tabs dedicated to a number of hot topics including:

  • Removing Pictures
  • Dealing With Others
  • Getting Help
  • Coping
  • Reporting
  • FAQ’s
  • Keep It Real
  • Did You Know?
  • Resources

The site also has an informative video and downloads for Need Help Now posters.

You can help by spreading the word that victims of cyberbullying are not alone.
