Addiction to the use of social media can make teens suffer from health problems. The purpose of this service is to increase students' knowledge and understanding of the negative impact of excessive use of social media on aspects of their health. This activity was carried out at SMAN 9 Padang. The methods included a pre-test, presentation, video screening, discussion, sharing experiences, and post-test. The results of the pre-test and post-test showed there was a change in the form of increased knowledge of participants. Based on experiences from the students, it can be seen that there is still a lack of support given by the Public Health Service, schools, and families. It is suggested that health professionals have an intensive effort to promote and evaluate the existing cases of social media addiction. The school also needs to issue a policy or hold a meeting with the family.
