She said this would help prevent mental distress and illness among adolescents and young adults and manage recovery.

Mr Stevens said: "As evidence in this country emerges - and the Chief Medical Officer is now looking at what we know and the impact of social media - we need to consider the links between health and technology for better, in many cases, but also for worse".
