Mental Health and “Social” Media

петък 7 октомври 2022 г. 10:00 ч. 12:00 ч.

What do you do on social media? How much time are you online? Can you imagine your life without them? TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Snapchat… People spend a lot of time on these platforms. In these platforms, people make friends, interact and spend more and more time – either for personal or professional reasons. Young people are especially present on social media. How can it change their life? How? What are the positives and the negatives? How does social media shape their life and well-being? We want to start the discussion and listen to young people’s stories. An expert will be present to explain their findings and give some tips that have worked for the young people they helped. Interested? We hope so! Join us to discuss and share your story and tips to find the right balance. This event is organised within the framework of the European Year of Youth. International Sign and speech to text in English are provided.
