Pell Center will host a roundtable discussion on social media and mental health
The Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy will host another roundtable discussion Tuesday, Oct. 25, from 11:45 p.m. to 12:45 p.m. in O’Hare Academic Building, Room 121. A free lunch will be provided. Salve Regina staff, faculty and students are invited to participate.
The roundtable discussion will focus on the impacts of social media on mental health. The discussion will explore the benefits and hazards of people’s near-constant access to technology, and it will unpack the correlation—if not the causation—between social media use and mental health conditions like anxiety and depression.
The discussion will be lead by Dr. Jim Ludes, vice president for strategic initiatives at Salve Regina and the executive director of the Pell Center, and Kathryn Langford, associate director and fellow at the Pell Center.
Roundtable discussions are open to students, faculty and staff at Salve Regina. The Pell Center will provide a free lunch, and space is limited. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
