Do you have a question about how social media impacts the mental health of children or teens? This page is for you.

Our Social Media & Youth Mental Health Question & Answer Portal is a collection of submitted questions from youth, educators, parents/caregivers, behavioral health professionals and clinicians, and other members of the general public on social media and youth mental wellbeing. Each submitted question has an evidence-based response from our expert team.

Click on an audience group below to view Q&A Portal questions and resources geared toward that specific audience.

Within each audience page, you can browse our library of previously submitted questions and responses to see what others are asking about. Check back often as we add new questions regularly! Don't see what you are looking for? Submit your own question using the "Submit a Question" button.

So whether you are a parent looking for advice about your child’s relationship with technology, an educator looking for resources for students, or a physician trying to understand how to support your patients, our team of experts are here to answer questions about technology, screens, social media and youth wellbeing.
