This October 15th we are running a short online training session on the topic of ‘Young people, social media and mental health’. The free training is aimed at those working with young people aged between 16 and 25 who would like to get a better understanding of the relationship between social media and mental health for young people.
What will the training cover?
This interactive workshop will cover:
- Research on social media and mental health
- Impact of social media on mental health
- SpunOut.ie social media and mental health content
- How to encourage awareness of social media usage
- Activity ideas for youth groups
- Available supports/resources
How do I sign up?
You can sign up through EventBrite to book your place. Spaces are limited so early booking is advised. If there is enough interest for another session we will run the training again later this year. The training will be run by SpunOut.ie Outreach and Training Officer, Sinead Beirne.
