Afterword to the Issue “Adolescents in the Digital Age: Effects on Health and Development”

By Daniel Romer and Michael Rich

Abstract

The articles in this thematic issue suggest both opportunities and hazards for the health and development of adolescents in the digital age. We place these concerns in the context of improving health for young people in the US and elsewhere, and suggest that based on evidence uncovered to date, increasing digital connection may be having no less favorable than adverse effect on adolescents

Topics: adolescents; behavioral health, development, digital communication, mental health, Communication, Public Affairs, Public Policy and Public Administration
