The in­ter­net is the sec­ond most com­mon place young peo­ple go to for sup­port, af­ter friends and fam­ily

Young peo­ple are twice as likely to go on­line as to con­tact a coun­sel­lor, teacher, doc­tor, min­is­ter or youth worker

They are three to six times more likely to go on­line than call a tele­phone hot­line

72 per cent of young males and 48 per cent of young fe­males play some kind of elec­tronic game
