Cafe MED - Social media: Double tapping into our insecurities?
-

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.
