Centre for Mental Health | September 2018 | Social media impacts on young people’s wellbeing need to be better understood, says Centre for Mental Health
The Centre for Mental Health have produced a new briefing paper,, the paper looks at evidence about the impact of social media use on the mental health of young people. It finds that while many studies have focused on the risks and potential harm caused by social media use, there is also evidence of potential benefits. And only by building a three-dimensional picture of the many ways young people interact with social media will we be able to reduce the risks and make the most of the opportunities they present (Source: The Centre for Mental Health).
