Birmingham, MI (PRWEB) September 30, 2013

Birmingham Maple Clinic, a leader in mental health therapy for the Metro-Detroit area and beyond, recently published an article titled “What is FOMO – Social Media & Mental Health” in response to the rising existence and recognition of the effects of social media sites like Facebook and Twitter on mental health.

The article delves into an internet slang term – FOMO, or fear of missing out, and its clinical implications. Carrie Krawiec, Birmingham Maple Therapist and writer of the article, says, “while the Internet and social media are applauded for the speed at which we can get information and for keeping us socially connected, there is growing evidence that social media can be doing more harm than good.” The article goes on to talk about the prevalence of people who feel negatively affected by social media, and how teens and young people are particularly susceptible to FOMO and social media depression.

What is FOMO” then goes into simple tips to stop the self-criticism that can be seen when comparing oneself with their friends and acquaintances on their social media sites. For more serious depression symptoms associated with social media in Metro-Detroit residents, individuals can inquire about treatment on the Birmingham Maple Clinic website,
