Webchat channel aims to help youths overcome cyber-addiction and bullying


With young people facing cyber-addiction and bully problems usually reluctant to seek help through face-to-face talks, a new webchat help channel was launched yesterday as an alternative counselling option.

Help123 (www.help123.sg), an initiative of the National Council of Social Service (NCSS), is a cyber-wellness support platform that offers online chat, phone and email support services via trained counsellors for youths and their family members.

Launched at the Conversations on Youth symposium at Singapore Expo, it aims to help them cope with things like harmful and illegal online behaviour that comes about from using the Internet.

Bradley died last Friday following a lengthy battle with cancer, having been diagnosed at just 18 months old. He was 6-year-old.

Bradley and Defoe
He was regularly a mascot at Sunderland matches last season and struck up a friendship with Defoe during the final few months of his short life, while his fight against the disease touched the hearts of football fans across the UK and the soccer world.
