Mental health is a growing problem in today’s society, specifically depression and anxiety. Some people are born with mental health conditions, while others develop them later in life. Depression and anxiety in particular are on the rise and a large portion of that can be attributed to the rise in use and dependence on social media. Although we all have our own insecurities, social media promotes media determined beauty ideals in women that are unrealistic and unattainable for many, without the risk of detrimental effects on physical and mental health. Constantly keeping up with other’s career achievements or personal relationships encourages self-doubt and comparisons with other people’s success. This is an unhealthy outlook on life and leads to many more problems.

Combating Mental Health Issues Triggered or Worsened by Social Media

In GP surgeries, hospitals, mental health clinics and many other medical establishment across the UK, practitioners are tackling the problems that social media worsens and at times even triggers in people of all ages. Social media has become addictive with many Brits checking their phones more than 28 times a day. Not only are we exposed to the details of our colleagues, neighbours, old friends and new friends lives but we are also now privy to the never before seen private lives of celebrities, the filthy rich and all other types of strangers whose lives we deem interesting enough to keep up with on a daily basis. This encourages people to derive their self-worth by comparing their own progress to other peoples. This is bound to end in disappointment as let’s face it, how likely is it that you will all of a sudden land millions of pounds, become famous, get that dream body and everything you’ve ever desired?

The NHS Combating Social Media

Social workers, therapists, psychologists and GPs throughout the nation are infuriated with constant issues that have arisen from overuse of social media. From children and young people who are suffering from severe FOMO after scrolling through feeds of their so called friends who are having the time of their lives without them, to adults who feel dissatisfied and regretful about the things they never achieved.  More and more people are being diagnosed with depression and anxiety and most of these people feel significantly worse about themselves after looking on social media. On top of that there are those who already struggle with mental health but can be triggered or worsened by some of the aforementioned issues arising from this oversharing online craze.
