Press OK to continue: How digitalisation is affecting our mental health

Technology is changing the way we develop and socialise as young people. In cyberspace, people say and do things that they wouldn’t ordinarily say and do in the analog world. Increasingly more children cope with challenges such as cyberbullying, self-promotion and online communication. What does this mean for our mental health? Do we value it enough or do we favour a digital sense of well-being? As digital citizens are we aware of the impact this can have on future generations? How can schools and institutions support a healthy approach to digital tools?

Join this discussion to explore the benefits and risks of the digital technologies in the sphere of mental health.
