Blog 7: Social media and its effects on our mental health

  • This article highlights the correlation between the amount of time teens spend on social networking sites and their overall mental health. This is alarming due to the steady rise in social media in our daily lives. As the younger generations start using these sites at an earlier age we may begin to see more individuals with mental health issues.
  • The data was collected by the Ontario Student Drug Use health survey in 2013. They ask 753 students with a mean average of 14.3 years old.
  • I am very curious the questions the participants were asked. How, just by survey, does one diagnose a teen with mental health? Would the person evaluating like to actually interview these subjects?
