Mental Health and Screen Time

Today, more and more people are becoming aware of the importance of mental health. Our modern, fast-paced world is filled with countless pressures, expectations and uncertainty. This can have a negative impact on our mental health and well-being. But these challenges aren’t exclusive to adulthood. Children and teens are also at risk for developing mental health disorders and the increased use of digital technology over recent years has made this a growing concern. 

Research shows that too much screen time can put children and teens at risk for developing numerous mental health challenges, such as anxiety, depression and stress. Being aware of the risks of too much screen time, and knowing what warning signs to watch out for, is critical to protecting mental health and developing healthy screen habits for children and teens.
