The Children's Society survey on social media bullying

10 May 2017 - 15:30 by helen.walker

The Children's Society has joined up with Alex Chalk, MP for Cheltenham, and YoungMinds, to look at the impact that social media bullying has on children and young people's mental health. They are looking into what steps social media companies are taking or could take to prevent and tackle this behaviour, but it's essential that young people give their views too, which is why they are asking for your help.

If you are aged 11-25, click here to take the survey. If you're not 11-25 years old, but are a parent or work with young people, then please send this survey to them.

A panel of MPs, peers and other experts will be holding evidence sessions in Parliament to look at the impact of cyberbullying on young people's mental health. There will be a final report, which will be made available on YoungMinds and The Children’s Society’s websites, which will include data from this survey. YoungMinds and The Children’s Society will make sure that all responses are kept anonymous, meaning no details that could identify a person (like your name or school) will be shared or put into the report. YoungMinds and The Children’s Society might also use your answers in their work to improve young people’s mental health - they will always keep your responses anonymous if they use them in this way.

The survey should take around 10-15 minutes, and the survey is only open for a short amount of time - http://www.surveygizmo.eu/s3/90029004/15f37d5648e5
