This show examines how the digital world is impacting the mental health of America’s youth. Hosted by OZY’s Carlos Watson, this special will tell first-person stories of teens and young adults grappling with the obsessive use of social media, computers, mobile devices, and video games, and ask the question: how do these digital technologies impact their stress levels, social interactions, self-esteem, and overall mental health? This special will pinpoint how addiction to the digital world is impacting the brains of our youth and will shed light on things we as a society can do to help.
