Abstract

This is a descriptive-qualitative design where in 16 qualified respondents were interviewed inside the school premises. Pre-survey questionnaires were given to 225 selected senior high school students as this study used convenience sampling, from which only 20 respondents were qualified for the study. Consent forms were given to 20 qualified respondents; they were interviewed individually for an average of 15 minutes. To keep the validity of this study, the data only came from 16 respondents as only one researcher conducted all their interviews. From the interview, student researchers extracted all significant statements from respondents and formulated meanings. Similar ideas were clustered into four themes, discussing the negative and positive experiences as to: emotional, psychological and social well-being of respondents. In this study, the student researchers have concluded that social media experiences have an impact on the mental health of selected senior high school students in De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute Academic Year 2018-2019.
