Mar 14 - Social media linked to rise in mental health disorders in teens, survey finds
 

 
Young adults born after 1995 are experiencing more mental health issues. Researchers point to lack of sleep and the rise of social media.

Mental health issues have risen significantly over the last decade and the rise of digital media may be one reason why, according to a national survey released Thursday.

The research, published by the American Psychological a*sociation, found sharp increases in the number of young adults and adolescents who reported experiencing negative psychological symptoms — specifically in those born in 1995 or later, known as iGen. Coincidentally, the greatest spike in symptoms occurred in 2011, around the same time social media bursts onto the scene.

No corresponding increase was observed in older adults.

“We found a substantial increase in major depression or suicidal thoughts, psychological distress, and more attempted suicides after 2010, versus the mid-2000s, and that increase was by far the largest in adolescents and young adults,” said lead author Jean Twenge, author of the book “iGen” and professor of psychology at San Diego State University. “These trends are weak or non-existent among adults 26 years and over, suggesting a generational shift in mood disorders instead of an overall increase across all ages.”

Twenge and her team analyzed data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, a nationally representative survey that has looked at drug and alcohol use, mental health, and other health-related issues in U.S. individuals age 12 and over since 1971. They looked at survey responses from more than 200,000 adolescents age 12 to 17 from 2005 to 2017, and almost 400,000 adults age 18 and over from 2008 to 2017.

All parents of 1-10 year olds should raise their children as if social media does not exist. That's the natural cure to handling this particular disease.

out of sight.

out of mind.

it's so easy to put your kid in front of a screen when they're going a million miles a minute and you can't even have a half second to hear yourself think. But that "convenience" is becoming detremental to the kids. The only thing we have to counterbalance the influence of social media, are parents providing context to their kids about how far from reality social media is. Demonstrating that "likes" don't mean sh*t and everything you see online is a polished turd that is fake and not real. That people who appear successful, beautiful and have tons of followers / likes are actually very insecure people and seeking validation because inside they really don't like themselves.

That is not even taking into consideration the social connectivity of things like Facebook. Kids get bullied at school, then they go online and they get the same on Facebook. Only it's much more public and more people see it, chime in, etc.

I agree, no kid under 10 should even be exposed to social media. fu*k it, or Xbox live or any online communities either. We need to arm our kids with the emotional intelligence and self confidence first, before we allow them to venture into the social media sphere and develop sh*tty senses of self worth and shallow/materialistic views of the world.

There are teenagers all over the country making millions per year because of social media. None of those people would be making it right if they ignored its rise and took advantage.

It’s a symptom of latent mental health problems — not the leading cause. I’d imagine people that spend a lot of time on social media are more likely to have mental health issues than people who browse now and again.

You could say the same for people who watch tv all day, play games all day, drink all day — etc.

Seems like a fear mongering study that, per usual, is “TECHNOLOGY BAD; OUTSIDE GOOD”
