The RSPH is running a webinar on the impact of social media on young people’s mental health and wellbeing which some of you may be interested in. Please find details of the webinar below:

Exploring #New Filters: a look into the recommendations from the All Party Parliamentary Group

16 July 2019, 1pm BST

Chair: Graham Rushbrook, chair of the Behaviour Change Special Interest Group at RSPH and member of the NICE Public Health Advisory Committee Programme.

Speakers: Chris Elmore MP, Chair of the APPG on Social Media on Young People’s Mental Health and Wellbeing and Niamh McDade, Senior Campaigns & Communications Executive at RSPH.

In March 2019, the APPG on Social Media and Young People’s Mental Health and Wellbeing published its report on the Group’s Inquiry, #NewFilters to manage the impact of social media on young people’s mental health and wellbeing. This was the first national Inquiry specifically examining the impact of social media on the mental health and wellbeing of young people, which ran from April 2018 to January 2019. The report explores the positive and negative health impacts of social media, as well as putting forward recommendations to protect young social media users from potential health harms. This webinar will explore the report and its findings in greater detail.
