Mental Health Monday Topic: Smartphones, Social Media Use and Youth Mental Health
• Recent research from the University of Arizona showed that adolescents who were dependent on or addicted to their smartphone were more likely to show signs of depression and loneliness.
• A 2018 survey sponsored by Hopelab and Well Being Trust showed that teens and young adults (14- to 22-years-old) had mixed feelings about social media use. Respondents who had symptoms of moderate to severe depression said they were more likely to feel left out when they use social media, or think that others are doing better than they are.
• Evidence from a variety of studies implicate smartphone and social media use in the increase in mental distress and self-injurious behavior among youth.
• Social media can affect adolescents’ self-view and interpersonal relationships through social comparison and negative interactions, including cyberbullying.
• High proportions of youth engage in heavy smartphone use and media multitasking, which results in chronic sleep deprivation, and negative effects on cognitive control, academic performance and socioemotional functioning.
HOW TO TAKE A BREAK AND FEEL BETTER
• Filter who you follow
• Limit your phone time
• Acknowledge when it's time to take a break
Please visit your Guidance Google Classroom for more information on Smartphones, Social Media and Youth Mental Health.
