Studies show that the average student (ages 7-17) spends up to 11 hours a day in front of a screen — TV, computer or cell phone. Social media platforms have become critical for young girls in their effort to stay connected to peers and parents. But, as girls spend more time trying to stay “connected” online, they actually become more disconnected. Recent studies have shown that the dramatic increase in social media use is associated with intensified social anxiety, social isolation and feelings of loneliness.

Studies also show a correlation between the amount of time spent on social media and personal life dissatisfaction. Girls create elaborate identities and personas on-screen; but do you ever wonder what is going on behind the screen? As girls experience the turbulent times of childhood and adolescence they often turn to social media to hide their fears, confusion and anxiety from the outside world. As a result, girls are twice as likely as boys to develop an internalizing disorder such as depression or anxiety by mid-adolescence. The better we understand what is hidden behind the screen of “mean girls,” the more effective we become in promoting the healthy development of confident, strong and happy girls.

Learning Objectives

» Develop an understanding of how social media can impact mental health

» Discover strategies to teach Netiquette: Send Means Said

» Create a plan for effective communication in the digital and real world

Suicide is one of the leading causes of death among students in North America – and the numbers are increasing, unfortunately. Surprisingly, almost half of the students who try to commit suicide will make their first attempt in elementary or middle school. Other than parents or guardians, educators provide the primary adult interaction and influence for many young people, and therefore can play a pivotal role in identifying students who may need help.

ased on the popular AccuTrain seminar Critical Mental Health Challenges, this video program will help teachers, administrators, counselors and para-professionals feel better equipped to intervene with a student who may have lost hope. It uses a dramatized interaction to demonstrate how an educator might best handle the difficult, but critical, conversation with a troubled student.
