Child and adolescent mental health
in the digital age

About this conference:

Places are filling up fast on our upcoming conference to explore the various risks and opportunities presented to children and young people growing up in the digital age.

Chaired by Bruce Adamson, Children and Young People’s Commissioner Scotland, the event will look not only at ensuring children and young people’s safety online but, more broadly, at how we can support their development into ethical, critical, responsible and engaged citizens – both in the online and offline world.

Key learning:

You’ll hear from a range of expert speakers, participate in practical workshops, and access relevant teaching materials and resources on a wide variety of topics, including:

  • Supporting digital participation, literacy and citizenship
  • Understanding the range of online safety risks for children and young people – from fake news and bullying to revenge porn and digital footprint
  • Exploring the latest trends in usage – including taking a look at current apps
  • Relevant resources to help practitioners and parents stay abreast of developments
  • The digital world as a means of empowering children and young people.

Who should attend?

This event is relevant to those working in education and care settings, youth workers, parents, carers and anyone interested in supporting a safe and nurturing online and offline environment for children and young people.
