Effect of Social Media on Mental Health

October 21 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Held virtually on Zoom

Social media is a technology with a lot of wonderful benefits. It allows people to share and connect, get news and information, and even meet new people. But there can be a downside too, especially for college-aged young adults who have grown up in a world of screens. Social media use has been linked to depression, anxiety and loneliness. Recent studies suggest people who frequently use social media feel more depressed and less happy with life than those who spend more time on non-screen-related activities. In this presentation by Global Citizenship Distinction, learn how social media can negatively impact your mental health, and how you—or someone you know—can use it in a healthier way.
