There is increasing evidence of a global surge in mental health difficulties among youths.

The digital world presents possible opportunities for engagement and intervention. However, this needs to be calibrated with the possible harmful effects from a reliance on digital technology and excessive screen time. This Temasek Shophouse Conversation will discuss the current state of youth mental health, the impact and benefits of the digital world on youths and the opportunities for innovation. This conversation aims to effect a discourse on the current state of youth mental health, the impact and benefits of the digital world on youths and the opportunities for innovation.
