Got Likes? Impacts of Social Media on Mental Health
The purpose of this group is to help adolescents overcome the challenges of self esteem from the usage of Social media. Social media is a great way to virtually interact and connect with others. However, social media can often negatively impact individuals especially adolescents during their transitional period of discovering themselves as they grow. Individuals may also endure self-esteem challenges due to living up to unrealistic expectations seen on social media. From frequently comparing oneself to others, to feeling “not good enough”, social media can potentially harm adolescents as they search for self identity and self-confidence. Low self-esteem is a major impact for black adolescents who encounter life challenges and strive for society’s definition of perfection on social media. Adolescents involved in these group sessions will be able to fully be aware of themselves as black individuals and utilize their identity as a strength.
