About Screen Sanity

Technology has the power to uplift and improve our humanity — but it is critical that we create new cultural norms of digital health if we want our kids to flourish. The mission of Screen Sanity is to create a world where kids are captivated by life, not screens.

About Us

Our story

Today’s parents have countless resources to help them raise a child, yet we are the first generation to ponder questions like, How is all of this new technology going to affect us? When should I get my child a smartphone? How should I prepare them for social media? How can I set my home up for success in this increasingly digital world?

A few years ago, we began pondering these questions for our own kids. When we went to ask our friends with older kids for their wisdom we were consistently confronted with headshakes, unknowing bewilderment and comments like, “I don’t know, but do something differently than I did.”

Screen Sanity became a reality because parents are seeking guidance in this new ecosystem. Founded in the United States in 2018, with expansion into Australia in 2021 by a group of passionate parents determined to make positive change. Our global non-profit helps families and communities pursue digital health in order to reduce loneliness, depression, anxiety and suicide in a socially isolated society.

The need for our programs and resources continue to grow as devices seep into every corner of our lives. Our resources and tools are designed to support families on every leg of their digital parenting journey — helping them to quickly navigate to the issue that is most pressing for their family. Our goal is to build trust with families so when they hit a new technology milestone, they know exactly where to turn. We want to empower families to think proactively about their digital health.
