Houston, TX – The U.S. Surgeon General Vivek H. Murthy has issued a public health advisory concerning the mental health challenges facing today’s youth.

Depression and Anxiety in Youth has Doubled Since 2019

Since 2019, depression and anxiety have doubled among our youth, and there is an indication of increased negative emotions, impulsive behaviors, and irritability. These behaviors are often associated with ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). Earlier this year, emergency room visits in the United States showed that the number of suicide attempts among adolescent girls was 51% higher than in early 2019. Among adolescent boys, the number of suicide attempts was 4% higher than in early 2019. Any healthcare professional or parent cannot overlook these astounding statics; our adolescents’ mental health is in crisis.

Mental Health is Treatable

According to Murthy, “Mental health challenges in children, adolescents, and young adults are real, and they are widespread. But most importantly, they are treatable and often preventable.”

J. Flowers Health Institute, located in Houston, offers counseling and holistic health approaches to help adolescents understand the underlying reasons for behavioral, emotional, academic, social, vocational, and functional issues. Using scientific, social, medical, and observational strategies, the staff will clarify diagnostic issues and provide new or elaborated information to enhance treatment, academic, vocational, and other types of life planning.

What You Can Do for Your Child

“Often, parents are aware something is different about their child, but they are not able to pinpoint the problem. One of the best things a parent can do is be aware of what their children are watching, whether it is television, social media, or online games, know who their friends are, and monitor their behaviors. Speak with your children about what they are feeling and discuss those emotions,” stated Arti Patel, LCSW-S, a J. Flowers therapist who works with adolescents.

If your child exhibits signs of depression, anxiety, or suicidal tendencies, now is the time to help them. Contact J. Flowers Health Institute at 713-783-6655 or visit www.jflowershealth.com for more information about comprehensive diagnostic techniques and how they can assist with addiction treatment, cognitive disorder diagnosis, and more.

OVERCOMING SOCIAL MEDIA ADDICTION

Overcoming Social Media Addiction

Overcoming Social Media Addiction

Table of Contents

Friends, Family, and Users All Suffer

Houston, Texas…It seems that the world is obsessed with social media. There is no escape, not for businesses and definitely not for individuals. As of July of 2021, 4.48 billion people currently use social media worldwide with an average of 6.6 various media platforms. These users, aged 16 to 64, spend at least 145 minutes a day on social media.

 

If you have a child 13 or older, you realize that social media can be all-consuming for them. Whether they are using Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, or other platforms, they are lost in their phones, tablets, and/or computers. If a child begins social media at the age of 16 and continues until the age of 70, they will spend 5.7 years of their life on it. Moreover, each year, the numbers tend to rise.

 

Unless carefully supervised, your child can wander into areas where no child should be. Online games may hold predators disguising themselves as children, body images become skewed because of airbrushed images, and bullies can anonymously hide among internet friends.

Breaking the Cycle

This social media addiction can be extremely difficult to break, but it can be done. However, the process is not quickly achieved nor is it a one-and-done fix. It takes time and, in many cases, a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation. Arit Patel, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with J. Flowers Health Institute, states that:

A comprehensive diagnostic evaluation is based on someone’s physical and emotional health. We want to get a 360° on how a person interacts with the world, how they view themselves, and how they use social media. We ask what they use social media for, whether it is for their job or for their personal reasons. We want to understand because that really impacts a person.

If someone you know is addicted to social media, now is the time to help them take control of this issue. Contact the J. Flowers Health Institute at 713-783-6655 or visit www.jflowershealth.com for more information about comprehensive diagnostic techniques and how our team can assist with addiction treatment, cognitive disorder diagnosis, and more.
