Study Finds Social Media Causes Spike In Suicidal Thoughts In Young People

A new study suggests that social media may be causing mental health problems in young people, says UPI.

Suicidal thoughts and actions from young adults spiked by nearly 50% between 2008 to 2017.

This is according to findings from a study published Thursday in Journal of Abnormal Psychology.

Young adults also reported a more than 50% increase in major depressive symptoms between 2005 and 2017.

Researchers suggest young people may also be feeling worse because they haven&apos;t had enough sleep due to social media addiction.
