Social Media’s Impact on the Mental Health of Our Youth

Aired March 30, 2022 at 4:30 pm on Facebook @TykesTeens

This episode of Mental Health Matters focuses on social media’s impact on the mental health of our youth.

There is a lot of scientific debate on the amount of time youth spend on social media. Is there an optimal or recommended amount of time for youth to spend on social media? How is social media impacting the mental wellbeing of youth in areas such as self image, depression, anxiety and cyberbullying? Is FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) real? How do I help my child develop healthy social media habits? What resources are available to support parents and youth in developing a healthy balance of boundaries for usage?
