As part of our Merging Mindsets panel series Creative Manitoba along with partners Video Pool Media Arts Centre and New Media Manitoba will be hosting this dynamic discussion on Social Media and Mental Health.

Social Media and Mental Health – How to Create Boundaries While Balancing a Creative Career

Social Media platforms can be an integral part of building a creative brand and online community. In today’s society, these apps are one of the first go-to’s for potential clients to instantly understand and connect with your brand. Apps like Instagram and Facebook can require countless hours of your attention – creating content, editing, responding to comments and messages, interacting with others in the community and more.  But what is this constant connection to media, messages, and information doing to our mental health? This presentation will discuss how to recognize when social media use is becoming a detriment to one’s mental health. In addition, we will talk about how to set up boundaries to engage in a healthy, moderated way, while still connecting with your audience and share resources available for those who are struggling to maintain balance.

This event will be recorded. Walk-ups are welcome!
