An adverse outcome of increasing access to the internet has been its use to threaten and harm individuals and groups. This has also lead to a situation where a number of young people are bullied on an ongoing basis even when they have left the confines of the school. On the other hand, some young people use the internet and social media as a tool to express their anger and grievance towards individuals and institutions. The Child & Youth Forensic Outreach Services in Brisbane have been working jointly with a host of law enforcement, educational, mental health and probation services to facilitate assessment and management of young people who have used the media to make threats.
