NSLAP WELLNESS: The Impact of Social Media on Body Image and Mental Health

"Undoubtedly, social media is a part of humankind, with billions of people using it daily. But as with any form of transformative technology, it has both positives and negatives. After a couple of decades of weaving social media into our social and cultural fabric, we’ve come to recognize the alarming effect it has on people's mental health. We see harmful effects such as individuals developing negative body images because they compare themselves to what they are observing and experiencing through social media. In this article, we'll take some time to unpack some of the complicated issues around social media use and the connections to body image and mental health."
