Being online and using social media has become integral to young people’s lives and creates both risks as well as opportunities for youth mental health. Our research, conducted in collaboration with our Young Person Advisory Group ‘Sprouting Minds’, aims to:
- understand what causes online mental health harms
- identify the biggest risks young people face
- find ways to build online resilience
- create effective online mental health support and interventions
Our research will inform how we design and regulate a safer online digital world for young people and how engaging digital interventions can increase effective youth mental health support.
