Social Media and Youth Mental Health
September 28, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm PDT
Social media has become a significant part of young people’s lives, affecting their mental health and well-being. Studies have shown that excessive social media use can contribute to anxiety, depression, and poor body image. However, social media can also provide a platform for positive mental health messaging and support. It is important for parents, educators, preventionists, and mental health professionals to be aware of the risks and benefits of social media use among youth, and to provide resources and education to help young people navigate these challenges. By promoting positive mental health practices and encouraging open communication, we can help ensure that young people are equipped to manage their mental health and thrive in today’s digital world.
Center for CTC Specialists will facilitate a discussion about the recently released Surgeon General’s report of Social Media and Youth Mental Health and how it can help inform prevention strategies in your community.
This is an interactive opportunity to brainstorm ideas and learn from your fellow coalition coordinators on strategies looking to improve youth mental health and social media practices. Join the conversation on this important topic impacting our communities and youth.
