PAPAYA is about promoting wellness and improved mental health in adolescents by helping young people get the right balance with technology.

1 in 9 children suffer from a diagnosed mental health problem, and there is concern that this figure is growing. Although we do not know if technology is contributing to this, there is growing evidence that the excessive use of technology may be affecting our children’s well being either directly or by reducing time spent on other activities.

At PAPAYA we aim to help empower parents and children tO HARNESS THE POSITIVE SIDE OF TECHNOLOGY WHILST trying to AVOID SOME OF IT’S POTENTIALLY MORE NEGATIVE effects.

PAPAYA launch event hosted by Jonathan Dimbleby

The PAPAYA launch event was a fantastic success, with over 150 parents and carers attending to hear about and discuss their concerns about the unrestricted use of technology in children. On a more upbeat note we also focused on solutions and how we, as parents and carers, can work together to help our children thrive in a digital age.
