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

Friday, May 10, 2024 · 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm ET
Online Event - Free

About This Event

Our kids are not okay — and while we may not know precise causes, the pervasiveness of technology and social media is likely playing a role. Policymakers and technology companies are looking at solutions to mitigate harms to youth from their engagement with social media. As clinicians and researchers, we have a role to play in helping to understand which interventions are having a positive effect, and how best to direct those interventions for the highest impact. 

In the first session of our Technology & Youth Mental Health Series, our hope is to give a sense of where the data and technology infrastructure is heading and what data will be needed to understand if the policy changes and technology interventions being applied are working. At Child Mind Institute, our strong hypothesis is that we need more ecological data — data that goes beyond surveys and laboratories to instead represent actual interaction between the person and the technology in their daily life.
