About what I would expect you to think. It's been shown time and again how bad social media is and how you are being manipulated by their algorithms. We can see the harm being generated on a daily basis especially on the right with the echo chamber effect. Also I have found most right wingers don't think mental health is actually "health" related.

He's also warned that loneliness is an epidemic in America and harmful of smoking a pack a day. The Surgeon General recommends that if you are suffering from loneliness consider joining a church.

Gee...everybody and their brother know that social media is effed up. this is a BS press release to inform who of what exactly?
sounds good makes the DR wet...but what impact do you think it will really have?
and as far as "mental health" goes...I see the left use that as an excuse, to a great extant, to whine about how hard and unfair life is.
you're worried about social media...be pro-active and don't use/let your kids use it
it'll be good for your mental health
IMO

Nope. In fact I would recommend atheists join a Unitarian church.
