Survivor's guilt and grief take a toll on mental health in lots of unseen ways. Young people deal with loss and rarely have the outlets to support their road to recovery and healing, especially juxtaposed to a preexisting diagnosis, or undiagnosed and even normal risky behavior common in adolescence. Social media exacerbates these issues and pose an even greater risk than we can imagine. The documentary Childhood 2.0 was a great watch on this topic

Students strive to be the most accomplished yet struggle with internal self-limiting beliefs, I recognized this, and still struggle with it at times. Social comparison, instant gratification and propaganda via media, music, culture influence young people in a unique way

I gave up the chase for credentials and started giving myself grace, and credit for being a good person.... gratitude keeps me grounded.

I am impressed how open you and other presenters are about their mental health problems. Some of the workshops were about overcoming the stigma and coming out with your mental health problems. On the other hand, coming out can also lead to experiencing stigma again. You yourself described that you experienced cyberbullying precisely because you were so open on social media. My question: is it really advisable to talk publicly about your own mental health problems? Don't you risk being hurt again? What would you advise other people who don't know whether they should open up and make their mental health problems public? And if you prefer not to make it public, does that mean that you continue to hide yourself and your own problems?

Did you ever have a negative view of social media? if so, why?
