Sharing – Mental Health Awareness Week – Doing one of the most difficult jobs

posted in: Links | 0

This is important work done by the Internet Watch Foundation, and I’m glad they see how important the mental health impact can be.

“Our analysts see more distressing images in a day than most see in their lifetime. Day in, day out, we see many children whose peace of mind is ruined by an internet which should be a place of joyful exploration, freedom, and discovery. It takes a very special person to be able to view these images without losing their compassion and concern. And a much larger team to look after these professionals.

Our gold-standard welfare system is in place to help them do this crucial task, even more within the current extraordinary circumstances of the coronavirus pandemic. “

I salute the work they do, and hope they are well-taken care of as they do what they can to help the victims.
