The Youth Board of Cyprus proceeded to create an application for smartphones (smartphone application).
The application has been made during the works of the Cyprus Network Telephone Lines Advisory and includes the telephone lines of governmental and non-govenmental organizations. The purpose of the applications is to keep the smartphones users updated about the various Advisory and Support Help Lines available in Cyprus.
There is a total of 9 telephone help-lines in the application covering a wide spectrum of psychosocial themessuch as the family, relationships, school, internet safety, sexuality and addictive substances.
It is a very simple but useful application via which the public can get informed about the many different Telephone Help-lines that are available to the people. Via this application the people can call the Help-line that interests them!
It is very importand to point out that in this crisis period that we are experiencing , the Help-lines are getting upgraded and updated. This is a free service through which the Help-Lines offer free and up-to date information and advice about a wide spectrum of psychosocial themes. Additionally the help-lines have the advantage of being easily accessible and providing striaght to the point advice depending on the theme the individuals are calling for!
The application is available for smartphones running Android operating system but will soon also be available for Apple Iphones too.
To download the application:
- Go to the Google Play Store via your smartphone
- Search Cyprus Helplines
