“It's really important for us to try to build new ways of coping in our bodies and our systems, and in ways that help us ground ourselves. And I do believe that that's what therapists can do even in the midst of warfare and loss and pain.” --

SOCIAL MEDIA

The purpose of @five_magnolias is to emphasize the connectivity of all humans, raise awareness about topics that our fellow humans are facing and offer opportunities for education and advocacy for the equal treatment of all humans. 

Social Media Tips

1. Turn off push notifications. 
2. Follow with a purpose.  
3. Diversify your feed. Choose people/businesses that have different background
s than you. 
4.Turn off "likes" count. It reduces the unhealthy {inevitable} comparison of yourself to others. 
5. Establish how much time you have before you pick up your phone to scroll. (Timers can help, too!) 
6. Give your phone a rest at night. 



There is so much amazing information about mental wellness on social media these days. However, it cannot be emphasized enough that proper diagnoses and treatment should be with providers who have met with you, understand your symptoms and expressions and have proper training to treat the diagnosis that you are struggling with. 
 

Detecting reputable mental health providers/social media content: 
1. They will be up front about their training and licensure. 

2. They will be open and honest about their areas of specialty and their framework for treatment. 
3. They will follow the applicable ethical obligations (MFT, MSW, MHC, etc).
4. They will not make promises or over commit the effectiveness of interventions. 

5. They will make proper and applicable disclosures about earnings related to their social media presence. 

These articles are great for additional information and tips as well.
