Protecting young people from the down sides of social media

Citing a troubling disparity for Native youth suicides, two tribes are suing the country's most prominent social media companies.

The lawsuit by the Spirit Lake Dakota Tribe and the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin alleges the addictive pull of the platforms is driving a mental health crisis for young people – and Native youth are particularly vulnerable. They join a long list of states and other entities taking on social media corporations saying they are degrading the country's mental health.

Join Native America Calling to discuss how to recognize when social media is becoming a problem and some ideas for a healthier approach.
