Engaging Youth in Improving Adolescent Health through Research and Practice
The Technology and Adolescent Mental Wellness program (TAM) is a community of stakeholders interested in generating novel responses to the following foundational question: How can technology support adolescent mental wellness?
The 2021 Virtual Colloquium was dedicated to engaging youth in improving adolescent health through research and practice.
The Colloquium brought together people of diverse backgrounds. The central pillars of TAM are empirical research, effective dissemination and implementation, and sustaining a collaborative and inclusive community, all around the topic of adolescent technology use and mental wellness.

This year our TAM community members worked alongside youth to write and publish an open access theme issue with JMIR-MH.
Highlights of this theme issue include:
- Manuscripts from each of our TAM grantees describing their projects and what was learned
- A collection of brief research papers from youth scientists
- A commentary from youth describing their experiences with technology during the past year in the COVID pandemic
