Social Media and its Impact on Youth Mental Health
CCNB’s event will discuss the influence of social media on youth mental health & its opportunity for social connectedness during COVID-19.
One in four teenagers faces psychological stress, with social media amplifying underlying mental health problems that young people can’t always identify.
Join Anushka, a school psychologist with a strong passion for Cultural Psychology and Educational & Developmental Psychology, as she explores social media’s mental health challenges and benefits. This session will also touch on the influence and role of social media for social connectedness during COVID-19. Anushka also endeavours to discuss ways to manage social media use better; there will be time for a Q & A segment.
