Navigating Screen Time and Mental Health in the Digital Era
In today’s world screens are all around us at work, school, and at home. Logan Winkelman, Ph.D., program director for the clinical mental health counseling program at the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center, addresses excessive screen time and provides tips to focus on for the new year.
“These platforms are set up to play on those dopamine receptors,” Winkelman said. “So being addicted to these devices and screen time is a real thing. And that can lead to other challenges, because we may not be engaging in other activities, or it could be a coping mechanism. That can lead to other things like anxiety and depression.”
