The internet comes in a variety of forms, with the most common being social media.
This has led to 57% of those aged 16-25 in Nottingham to feel an “overwhelming pressure”, according to Prince’s Trust.
The research shows that more than a third of these people worry that they will never be as happy as people they see on social media.
We went to Nottingham to hear your thoughts on how social media can affect mental health and happiness.
