This co-presented webinar is part 3 of 3 in GGTU’s 2022 series of standalone yet interconnected webinars titled, ‘The Impacts of Digital Technologies on Mental Health and Addictions’. New evidence and experience will be shared to demonstrate the digital health needs of young people who are accessing youth mental health services. A particular focus will be how young people engage with social media platforms (e.g., TikTok, Instagram). The presenters will describe the development of a new app by Foundry BC to engage young people in care and discuss the risks of not leveraging digital technologies for supporting the health trajectories of young people. Audience members will have a chance to ask questions during a Q&A.
Thursday July 21, 2022 1:00-2:00 p.m. EDT!
1) Describe the digital health needs of young people accessing youth mental health services
2) Outline current ways in which young people are learning about mental health through social media platforms
