Mental Health Minister Clare Haughey returns to her former school, Trinity High School, to announce a range of measures to improve the mental health of teenagers and directly target the impact of social media on body image. She meets with students to discuss social media, sleep disruption, body image and school pressures.
This will include £90,000 for the creation of advice on the healthy use of social media and screen time, co-produced by young people, for young people.
The announcement marks the publication of new research from the Scottish Government which identifies social media, sleep disruption, body image and school pressures as factors in the reported worsening of mental wellbeing among adolescent girls in Scotland.
