As teens go through everyday life, they deal with the normal pressures of school, friends, and family. One escape from this stress can be social media, but there can be unintended consequences for their mental health, according to researchers.
Atlee High School senior Kendall Jasinski says she can relate to those unintended consequences.
"I started struggling in eighth grade,” said Kendall. “I was truly sad and wasn’t exactly sure why I was feeling that way.”
Although she was told things would get better when she got to high school, Kendall says things got even worse during her freshman year.
