    Engaging Young People in Conversations Exploring the Impact of Their Online Use on Mental Health

    Young people have better access to the internet than ever before, with those under 18 accounting for one in three internet users globally. Recently, The Royal College of the Psychiatrists in the UK advised that social media and online use should be considered in assessing risk of all young people they meet.

    Don’t blame the children: Supporting families with young children

    Most research on the relationships between children and their parents focuses on the effects parents and their parenting have on children and their behaviour.

    Although there is increasing interest and investment in infant mental health, the term itself is not well understood. To support professionals to work together to protect and promote babies’ and young children’s mental health, we have worked with UNICEF-UK to create a new framework describing what it means to be mentally healthy in this life stage. The framework has two parts, “Being” and “Becoming” capturing both babies’ and young children’s current mental health as well as the capacities they are developing that will enable them to be mentally healthy in the future.

    Developing schools to enhance young people’s mental health

    Research has shown that many risk factors influence young people’s mental health needs, one of which is school expectations. The youth mental health crisis continues, with one in six young people (aged 6-16) having a probable mental health problem.
