Social Media Therapy takes you on a journey of self-discovery as you learn how social media affects our mental health and works to break down the stigmas and taboos surrounding mental health disorders.
The Final Episode
Hey there, it’s Sarah Potter host of Social Media Therapy. I have some big news coming your way…I’m shutting down this podcast. But, don’t you worry because this content isn’t going away forever, it’s just moving. Some of these episodes will be grandfathered into my new podcast, Dopamine Deficient.
What does that mean? Firstly, dopamine is feel-good neurotransmitter. And for those of us who’re dopamine deficient, it means our dopamine receptors are too few, or they might not be receiving the proper levels of dopamine.
So, why am I getting rid of this podcast and starting a new one? Well, I initially started this podcast with a co-host and we were talking about social media and focused on validating social media manager emotions–that original messaging has changed A LOT.
Since establishing Social Media Therapy my entire life has flipped upside down and changed a lot. In good ways and challenging ways. Through this change I’ve met and connected with so many people struggling with their own mental illness and dopamine deficiencies. One thing everyone seems to struggle with is understanding their mental health and how to live a life unmasked.
Living a happy life with a dopamine deficiency is challenging but not impossible. So on Dopamine Deficient you’ll hear what mental illnesses and disorders are affected by dopamine deficiency, learn how to change the way we think about our own mental health, create an arsenal of tools to help you cope, and break down the stigmas surrounding mental illness.

F*** Instagram and the BS posting strategies we’re told to go for with Rachel Pereya
Instagram is super annoying, right? And now, knowing that Facebook, owner of IG, isn't doing its job in removing hate speech, digital crimes, and has bolstered its algorithm to prioritize hate, it’s even less appealing than it already was. Am I right? In this episode, Rachel Pereya, a business operations specialist, joins me as we discuss the mental health aspects of creating content for a platform we hate.

How to Stop Feeling Inferior When You Have a Small Marketing Budget
Marketing budget. It sounds like such an overly professional thing that should just be easy to understand right? For me, marketing budgets cause me so much anxiety. Mainly because I just suck at budgeting overall. But when I went into business school in 2017 I spent a lot of time building a marketing budget, understanding how they function in the grand scheme of a business, and how truly easy they are to implement and create.
In this episode Sarah and Alli breakdown what marketing budgets are and how we can tell anxiety to take a hike.

How to Stop Comparing Yourself to Others on Social Media
We constantly compare ourselves to others on social media. Be it from looking at an ad, scrolling through our endless feeds, or searching out content of others we idolize. It’s hard to stop finding people to compare ourselves to. This is especially true in the body positivity movement, among entrepreneurs, and within gender specific realms. This week in our return to releasing episodes we’re discussing comparisonitis and the dangerous aspect of comparing every aspect of our lives to other people.
