This webinar focuses on social media, which is commonly used by billions of people around the world, including those with serious mental illnesses. While some evidence suggests that social media use may be associated with negative outcomes, like worsening mood and anxiety, other evidence claims it can help patients build stronger social networks and feel less isolated. This presentation will explore current evidence around social media and serious mental illness with the goal of providing practical tips to tell patients about use, warning signs of excessive use, and resources for helping patients who want to cut down their use. Positive use cases and support groups will also be covered.
