  • Social media sites your kids are on
  • Differences between social media sites
  • Tips on keeping kids safe on social media platforms
  • Mental health effects of social media and how to help

"We are happy to facilitate these critical information sessions for the community," said Stacey Cook, SalusCare's president and CEO.
