Technology. Some days it feels like we can’t live with it, but in today’s world we certainly can’t live without it. And what’s the mental health impact on our kids and teens who seem consumed by their smartphones and other digital media 24/7?

The short answer is: It’s a gray area. There are both pros and cons to technology. If we understand the causes for concerns and the benefits, alike, we can make the most of the media in our lives.

In this video, Gene Beresin and Steve Schlozman, co-hosts of our podcast “Shrinking It Down: Mental Health Made Simple,” make sense of living with technology and what it means for the young people in your life.
