Cyberbullying, sexting damaging young people’s mental health – MPs

A new article has been released which discusses the effects of cyberbullying and sexting on young people’s mental health. Sexting can be extremely traumatic for vulnerable young girls if their intimate and inappropriate images are shared via the Internet or through smartphones.
