The bill requires the department of education (department) to
create and maintain a resource bank of evidence-based, research-based,
and promising program materials and curricula pertaining to the mental
health impacts of social media use by children and teens (youth). The
resource bank will be used in elementary and secondary schools in the
state. The department is required to convene a stakeholder group to assist
in the creation of the resource bank.
The bill requires the department to expand local student wellness
programs to include programs that address the impacts of problematic
technology use on the mental and physical well-being of Colorado youth.
The bill requires a social media platform to display a pop-up
warning to a user who is under the age of 18 when the user:
  • Has spent one hour on social media platforms in a 24-hour
period; and
  • Is on a social media platform between the hours of 10 p.m.
and 6 a.m.
The warning must state that data shows that youth who spend more than
3 hours per day on social media double the risk of experiencing poor
mental health outcomes, including anxiety and depression symptoms. The
warning must include links to resources on the platform for setting screen
time limits and links to the health-effect data.
