This book focuses on children and young people in relation to media and health issues. Such issues represent central debates in contemporary society and pose major challenges for researchers and practitioners in a number of fields. Several contributions deal with possible risks to the health and well-being of children and young people in relation to their use of media - as viewers, listeners, readers and being on the internet - including research on how media can influence young people's physical and mental health.
Other contributions threat young people's health and well-being in relation to their rights to access information, express their views and parrticipate in the media.
