Please support our mission to empower & equip our young people & those that care about them to navigate safely through the online ocean.
I’m Enough is a Charity that provides digital coping strategies in a range of mediums; such as social media, our website, and workshops - offering tips and resources to help our youth and the people who care about them whilst also reaching as many people as possible.
The internet is a vast place full of information that can be utilised in many different ways, eg. learning new things, or connecting with friends.
This technology is very new and the oldest people who grew up with the internet are now only young adults.
Social media can have both a positive and negative impact on people. This is where we identified a need to equip and empower our youth, and those that care about them, with digital coping strategies.
We have joined forces with a team of experts in a range of different fields in order to target the full Te Whare Tapa Whā Health Model - addressing the mental, emotional, physical, social, and spiritual health and wellness of each individual when starting this new digital conversation.
We do not yet have comprehensive data to know exactly how access to the internet from a young age will impact the human brain throughout life. However, what we have been seeing in recent years is a rapid increase in youth anxiety, depression, and suicide. This is alarming!
We have always known that the teen years bring about insecurity, anxiety and self-doubt, but it seems that the limitless access to the digital world is amplifying this. Yet, the conversation about mental health stays the same.
This is where we have seen a need for a new conversation around keeping our youth safe in the digital world, both physically and mentally.
I’m Enough is a Charity dedicated to helping young people and those that care about them to understand the causes & impact of digital addiction & anxiety and to provide supportive strategies.
