Talk by Dr Louise Johnston and Dr Tharaka Gunarathne on the effects of social media on young people.

Bringing the public, researchers and clinicians together

Dealing with social media can be challenging, but for young people especially the effects on mental health can be profound. We will discuss positive and negative effects and will focus on eating disorders, as patients with these disorders can be particularly vulnerable to the impact of social media.

Speaker
Dr Louise Johnston (Consultant Psychiatrist, the Eden Unit, NHS Grampian) and Dr Tharaka Gunarathne (Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, NHS Grampian)
