About The Webinar

The Impact of Online Behaviour on Mental Health & Wellbeing

This webinar focuses on the impact that the online world can have on a child or young person's mental health and wellbeing. We explore effective ways in which schools and colleges can work with children and young people to improve their mental health and wellbeing when using the internet.

The government green paper ‘Transforming Children and Young People’s Mental Health Provision’, which was launched in December 2017, and the response to this paper, released in July 2018, both address the impact of the Internet on mental health with children and young people today. The documents consider the role that technology has in affecting children and young people’s mental health.

Keeping children and young people safe online is also an important way to protect their mental health. The Government’s ‘Internet Safety Strategy Green Paper’, published in October 2017, considers the impact of social media and internet use on children’s mental health. On 20 May 2018 we published our response to the ‘Internet Safety Strategy Green Paper’, detailing Government’s ambition to tackle harmful behaviour and content online. This response also set out an ambition to do more on age verification and committing to bringing forward a White Paper by the end of 2018. 20 The White Paper will set out plans for upcoming legislation that will cover the full range of online harms, including both harmful and illegal content. Potential areas where the Government will legislate include the social media code of practice, transparency reporting and online advertising. The White Paper will allow us to draw together existing work on safety as well as considering new, further policies aimed at improving children and young people’s mental health, including screen time.
