REMOTE WORKSHOP- Social Media and Mental Health During Social Distancing

May 22nd, 2020

10am-12pm

Speaker: Adrienne Principe, Executive Director, Turning Life On

We are living during a time in which adolescents are more depressed and more anxious, and more likely to be hospitalized for self-harm and suicide. Research shows at least a link between this mental health crisis and social media use, especially for girls. How can we connect during social distancing while still maintaining digital wellness, and how can we support our students?
