Is mental health effected by social media?
Are mental health problems worse or becoming better since media has taken over. Does the internet play a role in society's mental well being and ability to function?
If one suffers from anxiety the news can intensify their anxiety greatly. The reason being is the news only wants to air dirty laundry. This could also have an affect on the depressed as well.
In a way yes, it does. For example, if a person is shy, introvert or lacks sufficient self confidence to express himself then s/he needs help in the form of counselling and / or psychotherapy to develop good skills.
But the social media lets such a person carry on, watch on others and comment, share or like without embarrassment. Such cases are definitely affecting the mental health.
