CyberMentors launched to beat online bullying

MindMatics : 09 March, 2009  (New Product)
Anti cyber-bullying scheme launched by MindMatics using peer mentoring and social networking
MindMatics has announced its partnership with Beatbullying, the UK's leading bullying prevention charity. Beatbullying is tackling the UK's cyberbullying epidemic head-on with the launch of CyberMentors, the first nationwide online peer-mentoring social networking site.

The launch of CyberMentors follows Safer Internet Day on 10th February where social networking giants including Facebook and MySpace agreed that they need to work together to find new ways of preventing cyberbullying. For the first time, young people suffering at the hands of cyberbullying can seek immediate help and advice from other young people. MindMatics' mobile services provide CyberMentors with the means to get in touch with young people via another channel - the mobile phone.

Emma Jane Cross, Chief Executive, Beatbullying comments, "CyberMentors is the direct result of feedback given by the young people we have been working with in schools and communities across the country for the past seven years. It is the first time that the Third Sector, government, volunteers and young people are working together on a large scale and in an integrated way to tackle one of the biggest issues facing society today. We're looking forward to encouraging more social networking sites to come on board and address everyone's responsibility to keep young people safe."

"We are thrilled to be part of a project as worthwhile as CyberMentors," said Michael Englmaier, Head of Business Development at MindMatics. "MindMatics is looking forward to contributing to CyberMentors launch and future success."
