Nearly one in five American adults lives with a mental illness. Even more are undiagnosed or unable to get treatment.
Social media can have a negative impact on mental health, especially when cyberbullying or online discrimination is involved.
Studies show exposure to racial and ethnic discrimination on social media is correlated with higher levels of anxiety and depression for people of color, particularly among young Latino men.
