Around 95% of young people between the ages of 13–17 use at least one social media platform. More than one-third of those report using social media nearly constantly. There are many potential benefits of social media use in youths. Social media platforms can provide a positive connection and sense of community with others who share abilities, identities, and interests. However, use of social media can have potential negative impacts. A recent study published by the Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA) found that young people between the ages of 12 and 15 who spend more than 3 hours a day using social media are twice as likely to experience issues with their mental health, including symptoms of anxiety and depression. It may also lead to them internalizing issues. Come join us to learn some tips on how you can support your student's mental health in the era of social media.
