Social Media and Mental Health Poster
An estimated one - third of children have a social media account, so it’s important that trusted adults know what content young people are consuming, what they’re posting and interactions they’re having. On social media, it can be easy to go down ‘rabbit holes’ that aren’t beneficial to out wellbeing. As platforms grapple with managing such ‘legal but harmful’ content, lives are being impacted - sometimes to tragic effect. We might be daunted by the scale of the tech giants and their content which enthrals young people, but we can still help children to be aware of their mental wellness: recognising when something isn’t ok... and knowing what to do about content that upsets them.
