Youth Mental Health

and Social Media

>> VIEW RECORDING <<

Social media is a place where many teens go to escape their reality to be “free,” but a lot of teens also go there to release their emotions. Tik-Tok is one of the main platforms teens go to express their emotions; most of the short videos will come off as jokes until you look deeper and you see the teen is talking about their struggle with depression. Many teens like, comment, and re-share posts or short videos that they relate to. As a community, we should take notice of the videos our youth are making and help our youth. A conversation with Hasini lakshminarayanan, Maria Ortega, Chebijira Esther, Ayesha Shaikh.

9:30am - 11:15am EST
