It is encouraging to witness pioneering scholars increasingly collaborating with entertainment media platforms to apply knowledge into practice. One recent example is particularly evident on YouTube, where changes have been made to support the well-being of youth in various ways.

Professor Jessica Taylor Piotrowski, a member of the Youth and Families Advisory Committee, delineates some of these changes as follows:

➡ New safeguards to recommendations around content that idealizes certain physical standards
➡ Updated Take a Break Reminders
➡ Crisis resource panels
➡ New partnership with the World Health Organization (WHO)
➡ Partnership with Common Sense Networks on new educational resource for Parents and Teens.
