Social Media and Mental Health

This topic is of great interest to me as I feel like it relates to everyone in some way, everyone has access to social media it's just that some chose to use it in different ways than others.

The issues surrounding this topic are whether social media is detrimental to mental health or if it aids people in reaching out and receiving help. Almost everyone has been affected by social media personally and if they haven’t it is very likely that they know someone who has been.

I think this needs to be talked about more and more and it is a topic that spikes every so often when something unfortunate happens because of social media, however I think it needs to be an ongoing conversation people are not afraid to have. My goal within the zine is to show people their feelings are normal, opening the door for conversations.
