NSHSS is encouraging our members and families to watch the Netflix film "The Social Dilemma." This exclusive panel discussion is a follow-up to the documentary and is moderated by Kolby Keo, NSHSS Fellows Executive Board Vice President and featuring the filmmaker, Jeff Orlowski, renowned psychiatrist Dr. Anna Lembke, and former Facebook executive, Tim Kendall. This discussion a a deep-dive into how social media is negatively effecting human beings including our mental health. Is there still time to change the cycle or are we in too deep?
The stigma surrounding mental illness has become far too common, but more and more individuals are speaking out and raising awareness on the issue.

Some of our very own NSHSS Ambassadors and Collegiate Council members have created organizations and initiatives to bring awareness to mental health. One of these Ambassador-led organizations is "Students Stopping Stigmas." "Students Stopping Stigmas is an organization dedicated to erasing the stigmas/stereotypes attached to mental health and empowering people to seek help."
