Case Studies and Guidelines on Young People’s Uses of Social Media

These evidence-based case studies and guidelines demonstrate the varying ways young people use social media and the impacts of this behaviour on their health and wellbeing. .

The case studies are based on evidence generated with 1346 young people in the UK who worked with us to communicate their experiences of social media.

The guidelines were constructed with an multi-disciplinary and multi-sector advisory board of key stakeholders who have a responsibility for young people’s health and wellbeing. This work was supported by the Wellcome Trust [201601/Z/16/Z].

The case studies and guidelines are relevant to adults who have a responsibility for young people’s health and wellbeing.

If you would like to use these guidelines and videos in your professional organisation or would like more information about the project please contact Dr Victoria Goodyear.
