Setting the Stage: The Next Frontier of Mental Health Research Depends on Ecological Data

May 10 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Mental health issues among teenagers have increased dramatically in recent years, with technology playing a crucial role as both a connector and a potential source of harm.

But even as policymakers and tech companies seek solutions, accurate data about technology’s impact on young people’s mental health remains difficult to obtain.

In this webinar series, the Child Mind Institute will convene a panel of experienced researchers, advocates, and tech thinkers to explore the relationships among technology, mental health, and public policy and identify challenges and propose solutions to advance ecological research.

In our first session on May 10 at 3:00pm ET, panelists will discuss the data currently available to researchers and the limits of its infrastructure and consider what data is needed to better measure the efficacy of public policies and technology interventions.
