The Town will continue our Fountain Hills Cares Series with “Social Media and Mental Health Issues,” featuring experts on how social media platforms affect youth and how parents can stay in touch with their children. According to the Pew Research Center, 81% of American teens use social media, putting a large population at an increased risk of feeling anxious, depressed, or ill over social media use, thus affecting all aspects of their lives. Partners for this event include the Boys and Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale and Salt River Schools.
