The truth behind the (profile) picture: Does social media affect your mental health?

Hosted by Ogilvy and The National Gallery

There is a growing concern that social media may affect our mental health and wellbeing, but are these claims exaggerated? Or should we be limiting our use of social media? This panel debate will discuss whether social media causes mental health issues or if it actually provides those suffering with a much-needed outlet. The event is aimed at community managers, mental health charities, healthcare professionals and anyone with an interest in social media and mental health. It will be a panel discussion with short presentations from the speakers followed by an interactive audience discussion and Q&As. By attending the event we hope that you will gain a deeper understanding of how social media may affect our mental health.
