2022 Service-Learning Symposium: Mental Illness on Social Media

Mental Illness on Social Media

Authors: Bee Graham

Faculty Supervisor: Anelise Farris, Ph.D.

Community Partner: Nottinghill POA


For my symposium poster, my topic was Mental Illness on Social Media. I worked with my neighborhood committee as a way for me to work with the people in my community. I formed a group, where we would all disconnect from the internet, and go about and talk about how mental illnesses can be linked to social media; good and bad. In this group, I shared tips and ideas, such as practicing yoga, taking a walk around the park, or forming a hobby that you would enjoy personally. This can be connected to my course through units 4 and 5, where we talked about mental health and environmentalism within literature and in the community.
