This is another episode, in which we do deeper into different topics explored in the Youth Knowledge Book on Young People, social inclusion and digitalisation. This time we look into two chapters that discuss how digitalisation is affecting young people’s mental health and well-being.

Our guest, Cathy Street wrote a chapter, in which she looks into young people’s digital well-being outlining current research findings about both positive and negative effects of digitalisation, including problematic or excessive use of technology and some theories behind these findings.

Ursula Curven, our second guest, wrote an article, in which she explores how young people who are marginalised and isolated can feel supported through the use of peer chat media such as Yik Yak, social media app that enabled people to post anonymously in short message format, similar to a text or Twitter.

My name is Dariusz Grzemny and together with Lana Pasic from the EU-Council of Europe Youth Partnership, we will be discussing the topic of young people’s mental health and well-being with our guests.

Enjoy listening!
