Technology use and the mental health of children and young people

21st January 2020
The Royal College of Psychiatrists have released a report into technology use and the mental health of children and young people.
 
The report recognises the huge benefits but also raises concerns about the growing evidence of an association between social media use and poor mental health, with the lack of research on the connection between mental health and technology makes it difficult to identify causality.
 
The report includes a wide range of recommendations for all stakeholders and is definitely worth a read.  You can access the report by clicking here, and the associated press release here.
