Social media, young people and mental health


4 October 2018

This briefing paper is based on a brief scan of evidence from a range of sources to identify key themes in what is known about the impact social media (and their use) can have on young people’s wellbeing, and the ways in which they can be harnessed positively. It is not a comprehensive review of the literature but is intended as a stimulus for debate and discussion.
