Alliance for Mental Wellness Presents: #SafeSocial: Social Media’s Impact on Mental Health
March 9 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pmFree
This year’s forum is designed to address the intersection of social media and mental health—while social media enables connections and collaboration at an unprecedented scale, there’s also a dark side to this networked world laced with addiction, depression, harassment, and more. Since it’s not going anywhere, abstinence might not be an option, but you can still practice #SafeSocial.
How is this activity we spend so much time doing actually affecting how we think and feel?
What is happening in the social media world and how does it influence the mental health of us and our youth? Adapted from her original TED talk with nearly 4M views, Bailey Parnell will draw from research and exclusive experience to illustrate the current social media landscape as it relates to mental well-being, explain the effects it has on us daily, and provide 5 steps towards #SafeSocial.
