ESafety alerts

CAMHS have asked us to make parents and carers aware of current ESafety concerns-

There is an online game called Blue Whale, which originated in Russia. It encourages self harm for 50 days then committing suicide on the last day. Young people are asked to carve a whale on their forearm. 

There has been increased suicides in Russia, linked to this game. In Hampshire there have been 2 completed suicides and 2 very near misses.

There is also a new dating app specifically for under 18s called Yellow, and its lack of safety features have raised concerns. For more details on Yellow, please click below.
