Are Smartphones Making Our Children Mentally Ill?

This lady believes that smartphones are making our children mentally ill.

She is pointing a finger of accusation at the smartphones - "pocket rockets" as she calls them آ– which are now routinely in the hands of over 80 per cent of secondary school age children. Their arrival has been, she notes, a key change since 2010. "It’s a simplistic view, but I think it is the ubiquity of broadband and smartphones that has changed the pace and the power and the drama of mental illness in young people."
