Growing up digital: mental wellbeing for children and teens in a high-tech...
Tue. 28 February 2017, 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm AEDT
Are you a first generation digital parent?
Every parent wants their child to be happy, fulfilled and mentally healthy. But when you are raising the first generation of ‘digital natives’ the challenge can seem daunting.
The NSW Mental Health Commission invites you to join experts in online culture, digital media and youth mental health to answer your questions and explore how parents and community can act now to increase the mental wellbeing of young people today.
Who’s on the panel?
Mia Freedman – Co-founder, Mamamia Women’s Media Company and digital journalist
Samantha Yorke – Public Policy and Government Affairs, Google
Jono Nicholas – CEO of ReachOut.com
Jono Nicholas, CEO of ReachOut.com said, “Today's parents are dealing with unprecedented issues when it comes to raising their children, and are having to navigate issues like cyberbullying, social media, screen time and their kids' mobile phone use, on top of the normal challenges of adolescence. The rapid changes in technology can make some feel cut off from their children's digital lives and anxious about their online activity.”
This FREE event is for anyone interested in online culture and how it affects emotional lives. It promises to challenge, enlighten and inspire parents, pointing the way to better wellbeing not only for their children but for themselves.
