Interested in research on the benefits and harms of social media use on young adult mental health – join us to generate new research ideas.
We are seeking clinicians, parents, carers, local authority/public health practitioners, those who in the education sector and the private sector, who are interested in shaping research in this area.
We aim to identify new research ideas related to social media use and young adult (aged 16-25) mental health and generate new collaborations.
Join us on online (Zoom) on Monday May 16th 2022, 10am-12.30pm.
There will be a short presentation followed by small group and wider group discussions of key research questions including:
1. How can we maximize the potential benefits of social media to improve mental health?
2. What are the potential harms of social media on mental health?
3. How can we best support primary care clinicians, schools, local authorities and the wider community to provide guidance to young adults on social media use and mental health?
4. How can we best support young adults with concerns about their mental health when engaging with social media?
This workshop will be facilitated by Dr Ruth Plackett and Dr Patricia Schartau (UCL, NIHR School of Primary Care Research) with contributions from the NIHR Schools of Social Care Research and Public Health Research and supported by the NIHR Three Schools’ Mental Health Programme.
