This is a blog where I want to share my insights with everything I have learned over the past few months and which has helped me expand my professional view. Hereby I share my vision and my opinion on the topic of social media, youth, and mental health. But I also want young people to start sharing. Share how they feel and what they are experiencing in terms of mental health complaints. Share the different pressures they are feeling. Share what kind of impact the pandemic is having on them. Share it all, with each other.

I still believe that social media has to do with this pressure being felt even more. Purely because it gives us a lot of information that we simply wouldn't know without the online platforms.
