She further added that today's youth are simply not spending as much time with their friends in person or face-to-face, where they can really observe each others' emotions and get that social support. And we know from lots of studies that spending time with other people in person is one of the best indicators for psychological well-being and one of the best protections against having mental health-related issues.

Also, due to the impact of social media usage youth are at risk of developing a tendency of low self-confidence which often arises due to peer pressure. When youth are bullied on social platforms they are not able to withstand them and tend to become anxious, depressed and due to the risen pressure, they are opting for suicide. Because they have lost the confidence to battle it out and survive.

Also, due to their overindulgence in smartphones, the youth are skipping physical activities, which in turn lead them towards obesity.
