Cyberbullying: Young Minds need young people’s opinions for a new report
Youth mental health charity Young Minds are running a survey for young people aged 11 – 25 to learn about their experiences of using social media and the impact social media has on mental health.
Here’s what they say about it:
“YoungMinds are holding an inquiry, in partnership with The Children’s Society about the impact of social media on the mental health of children and young people. The inquiry asks two key questions about social media companies:
1. Should social media companies do more to prevent and tackle cyber-bullying on their sites?
2. Should social media companies do more to promote the wellbeing and good mental health of the users on their sites.
This survey will help us to answer these questions. It will help us to understand what is and isn’t working well, and what could be done to make social media sites safer in the future.
There will be a final report, which will be made available on YoungMinds and The Children’s Society’s websites, which will include data from this survey. YoungMinds and The Children’s Society will make sure that all your responses are kept anonymous, meaning no details that could identify you (like your name or school) will be shared or put into the report. YoungMinds and The Children’s Society might also use your answers in our work to improve young people’s mental health - we will always keep your responses anonymous if we use them in this way.
The survey should take around 10-15 minutes, and we are really grateful to you for sharing your opinions and experiences.”
