ABOUT THE AUTHOR & INFORMATION BRIEF

My name is Lindsay Rokito and I am a senior in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, majoring in Communication and minoring in Psychology and Human Development. I have been part of the YRO lab since my sophomore year and my work revolves around the intersection of media and mental health. This is my second blog post (the first discusses depression and media) and I examine the relationship between eating disorders and the media. With the increase in media use it is important to be aware of the negative impacts that it has on mental health.
