CyberStrong Mesa County is a community campaign addressing both the wonders and concerns the cyber world has on the well-being of our children, families, and community. CyberStrong gives simple, easy, and free tips to help families decide the best way to use the internet so it adds to the quality of their lives. CyberStrong is a collaboration between Hilltop Community Resources, Mesa County Valley School District 51, the Mesa County Libraries, and the Western Colorado Community Foundation. Together we are working to find concrete solutions to some of the crises our cyber-connected children have been experiencing such as increased bullying, mental illness, and feelings of hopelessness.
