Dr. Sperling appeared February 21, 2023 on SftPublic's Contemporary Science Issues and Innovations program to discuss the impact of social media on teens. Mental health professionals and educators are concerned about the significant increase in teen anxiety and depression over the past decade which is largely related to a kind of addiction to social media.
