Social media and youth suicide

  • Hour 3 of 8-26-20
  • Due to COVID, we are witnessing frightening stats, increase in mental health/depression/suicide for 18-24 year olds. As they are spending too much time on social media and internet, this only exasperates the problem. Young girls, especially, are at risk of suicide because of too much social media usage. Should young people be having access to internet, and if so, how much? Dr. Meg Meeker is here to dig into this, and she tells you about a smart phone for kids that does not allow internet access.
  • Dr. Richard Fitzgibbons continues conversation on mental health problems for young people. He believes that COVID is causing way too much fear for people, and he says that it is time to get the economy and normal life back. He also says that HCQ as a drug is being withheld, and you have a right to this drug. Hydroxychloroquine has not been shown to have substantial negative effects, and yet it is not being trusted as a COVID solution. Dr. Fitzgibbons says that the government wants it withheld so that more fear and division is continued. Do you agree?
  • Divorce culture and its impact on youth is something worth talking about. Fr. Paul Sullins is in to share how much divorce can impact a young child. Divorce should not be an answer for couples, and far too many couples think marriage is for them. It is not, but rather should be fought for so that kids can stay happy and well. Marriage is not meant for self.
