Social Media and Kids

J.A. Donnelly

On the next Mind Over Matter Podcast, we discuss the Surgeon General's report, focusing on the negative effects of social media use on adolescent brain development and mental health.

We talk to Tia Dreckman, a professional school counselor from Milton and we address topics such as anxiety/depression, addiction, online bullying, and harmful content. In addition, we also highlight the positive aspects of social media, especially for underserved communities.
