Cooperative Agreement to a USA public or private nonprofit entity, government agency, tribe, or health facility to establish a center to address the risk and benefits of social media use for children and youth. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to six weeks to complete. The center will support the development and dissemination of information, guidance, and training on the impact and potential risks that social media platforms pose to mental health; and the clinical and societal interventions that could be used to address these risks.

Center of Excellence on Social Media and Mental Wellbeing Cooperative Agreement

The Social Media and Mental Wellbeing CoE aims to:

  • Increase awareness, education, and knowledge around the risk and benefits of social media use for children and youth to promote social-emotional wellbeing and prevent harm.
  • Ensure and expand the availability and delivery of publicly available, free of charge training, technical assistance, and consultation for individuals who work with children and youth impacted by social media and negative mental health outcomes.
  • Synthesize and disseminate to youth and adults best practices and research on appropriate social media use, communication, guidance, and other resources. 

The Center of Excellence on Social Media and Mental Wellbeing focuses on three priorities:

  1.  Education & Resources around the risks and benefits of social media use for children and youth.
  2. Culturally and linguistically appropriate technical assistance focusing on active
    learning, consultation, and support on how to best assist children and youth in
    thoughtfully balancing ways to interface with the digital world, particularly social media
    and online social engagement, in a way that enhances their mental health while
    reducing harm.
  3. Best Practice and Research Updates. This priority will synthesize best practices and up-to-date literature in the field and communicate and disseminate them to all relevant stakeholders.
