As social media has boomed in the past decade, there has been an increase in internet use and virtual communication through computers, mobile phones and tablets in adolescents. Putting images of themselves online as they carve out an identity and chase likes, they encounter many dangers: cyberbullying, race discrimination, discrimination because of one’s sexual orientation, eating disorders, self-harm, suicide, alcohol addiction and addiction to gaming.
With adolescent’s mental health issues on the rise, The Effect of Social Media on Adolescents' Mental Health and Well-Being acts as a guide for parents and teachers alike in supporting their adolescents' mental health and well-being while they navigate the internet.
Dr Steph Adam explains by using case studies, and her own experience of counselling young people, the risks and benefits of social media and how to keep adolescents safer online.
