ABOUT THE AUTHOR & INFORMATION BRIEF

My name is Lindsay Rokito and I am a senior at Cornell University majoring in Communication and minoring in Psychology and Human Development. As the liaison between the Youth Risk and Opportunity Lab and the Social Media Lab I have a strong interest in the overlap between mental health and media. Given how much media has taken over society, I am excited to share with others what I have learned surrounding media and mental health in the hopes of educating the community on the harmful and helpful effects of media.
