The Counseling profession has recognized that excessive use of technology and certain online behavior can contribute to or exacerbate depression. 

Social media: Spending excessive time on social media platforms can lead to feelings of inadequacy, comparison, and isolation, which can negatively impact mental health.

Cyberbullying: Online harassment and cyberbullying can significantly impact a person's self-esteem and contribute to depression.

Sedentary lifestyle: Excessive screen time can lead to a sedentary lifestyle, which is associated with an increased risk of depression. Lack of physical activity and sunlight can contribute to feelings of low mood.

Sleep disturbances: The use of technology before bed, such as smartphones or tablets, can interfere with sleep patterns, leading to sleep disturbances. Sleep deprivation is closely linked to depression.

Information overload: Constant exposure to distressing news or negative online content can impact mental well-being, contributing to feelings of sadness, anxiety, and hopelessness.
