Together, we can make the internet a healthier place for young people

The Inspired Internet Pledge is a commitment by all who work within the digital ecosystem to unite with the common goal of making the internet a safer and healthier place for everyone, especially young people.

While many attribute the current youth mental health crisis to the use of interactive media, we know from our research that the digital ecosystem holds substantial promise for being an important part of the solution, enabling young people to express their identities, explore interests, and build meaningful relationships.

The Digital Wellness Lab believes that by sharing rigorous research and clinical expertise, we can change the paradigm for how young people use technology and interactive media. We also believe that efforts to design and maintain a healthy digital ecosystem for young people are more effective when public and private sectors join together for impact. 

With policymakers in the US and around the globe focused on how technology influences and affects youth mental health and emotional well-being, the Inspired Internet Pledge is an opportunity for the industry to come together and show, not just tell, how they are addressing some of our most serious challenges.
