Israel: People for the Safe Use of the Internet

As a result of a tragic event in my family, in which my son, being in depression, received encouragement and instructions how to commit suicide over the net, 8 years ago, which resulted shortly in his death, I decided to set up a non-profit organizatioon in Israel, called ESHNAV, translated in Hebrew to “People for Safe Internet“, Dr. Avshalom Aderet said.
ESHNAV is promoting the public’s awareness of the positive and negative effects of the use of the Internet on society and its values, and for the furthering of the appropriate and safe use of the Internet.

  • So we should restrict the internet because someone was depressed and killed themselves? No. It’s sentiments like these that take attention away from the real problem: treating depression.
