Thought Factory Podcast #612 || Students in the Age of Comparison

We continue our discussion on mental health, looking at some of the causes of increased student depression and anxiety – stemming from constantly comparing themselves to others online.  Since the advent of social media and in the age of likes, followers, comments, and digital connections, the mental health of a student has been impacted significantly.  Imagine being an adolescent and never feeling good enough because someone else is always going to appear better than them?  Hosts Jeff Eckart and Jayson Brewer speak to Clinton Faupel from Remedy Live, an online suicide prevention and crisis chat resource for students. They also speak with Phil Joel of Zealand Worship and Newsboys United about his new book, Redwoods and Whales: Becoming Who You Actually Are.
