Adolescents spend hours a day in front of screens, and though the Internet can be a place of community and self-expression, it can also be a portal into bullying and negative self-image.

In this two-hour talk and workshop with Victoria Betton, co-author of Teen Mental Health in an Online World, you will use case studies to learn how to engage with vulnerable young people and support their mental health in a digital and real-world context.

A valuable opportunity to hear the latest research, gain some practical skills, and for those working or living with teenagers to learn how to use digital technologies to promote wellbeing in young people.

This event is sponsored by the NHS.
