The percentage of young Americans experiencing certain types of mental health disorders has risen significantly over the past decade, with no corresponding increase in older adults, according to research published by the American Psychological Association.

“More U.S. adolescents and young adults in the late 2010s, versus the mid-2000s, experienced serious psychological distress, major depression or suicidal thoughts, and more attempted suicide,” said lead author Jean Twenge, PhD, author of the book "iGen" and professor of psychology at San Diego State University. “These trends are weak or non-existent among adults 26 years and over, suggesting a generational shift in mood disorders instead of an overall increase across all ages.”

Twenge and her co-authors analyzed data from the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, a nationally representative survey that has tracked drug and alcohol use, mental health and other health-related issues in individuals age 12 and over in the United States since 1971. They looked at survey responses from more than 200,000 adolescents age 12 to 17 from 2005 to 2017, and almost 400,000 adults age 18 and over from 2008 to 2017.

The rate of individuals reporting symptoms consistent with major depression in the last 12 months increased 52 percent in adolescents from 2005 to 2017 (from 8.7 percent to 13.2 percent) and 63 percent in young adults age 18 to 25 from 2009 to 2017 (from 8.1 percent to 13.2 percent). There was also a 71 percent increase in young adults experiencing serious psychological distress in the previous 30 days from 2008 to 2017 (from 7.7 percent to 13.1 percent). The rate of young adults with suicidal thoughts or other suicide-related outcomes increased 47 percent from 2008 to 2017 (from 7.0 percent to 10.3 percent).

There was no significant increase in the percentage of older adults experiencing depression or psychological distress during corresponding time periods. The researchers even saw a slight decline in psychological distress in individuals over 65.

The increase in digital media use may have had a bigger impact on teens and young adults because older adults' social lives are more stable and might have changed less than teens' social lives have in the last ten years, said Twenge. Older adults might also be less likely to use digital media in a way that interferes with sleep – for example, they might be better at not staying up late on their phones or using them in the middle of the night.

“These results suggest a need for more research to understand how digital communication versus face-to-face social interaction influences mood disorders and suicide-related outcomes and to develop specialized interventions for younger age groups,” she said.




true news


The one thing I do agree with the Chinese government on? THIS ISSUE. When chinks are addicted to social media/internet they get sent to boot camp for a while till their addiction goes away. Thats what parents should do in America these days.


true news bumparoo



Americans love sending their offspring off to camps to receive a course of electroshock and indoctrination to 'fix' them, though. Sure beats putting in the time and effort into raising their own kids.



Well I don't endorse electroshock or political indoctrination, that is not what boot camps were meant for, boot camps were meant for physical training and building social skills with your fellow peers. All face to face, no internet, no gadgets, no computers. Just work, play, exercise in the sunshine and rest. Thats what bootcamps are for.




I wonder if the digital age is helping kill off those with no self control via indefinite distraction from their lives until it's gone? They can't multiply if they don't have human contact.


Funny how this is article is complete bullshit. Another one came out before that one stating that suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death in america for adults THAT ARE 18-35.. and depression affects 30 million people. Why are people still having kids with how bad life has gotten? Fucking idiots.



because they can't afford vasectomies or condoms



>because they’re tards who can’t do the most basic of things correctly

ftfy. Weaker breeds always produce more or so I’ve heard.



good, all social meadia additcs should melt their brains



That's what parents are supposed to do.

It shouldn't be a last ditch fix, it should be a regular thing.

Children should be allowed time, space and freedom to play every single day in school.

The changes since the 70s/80s to now mean that there is nothing to play on because it has been removed due to being too 'dangerous'. Back then, someone breaking an arm while playing was fairly common, it was part of life. Now it is the end of the world, the school is shut down and the teachers and students executed, their bodies recycled into anti-aging creams for the 'elite'.

Parks are cut down, woods sold off and turned into housing estates, children kept indoors because it is too dangerous outside, and rather than there being any parenting, they are sat in front of television from birth onwards, then handed a phone to play with at six, and left in front of the computer from the time they can sit half upright in a chair.

There is no stay outside the whole day and play with your friends, no exploring the local woods, because it is filled with degenerates, mudskins, kidnappers and drug addicts.

The only blessing this earth could receive is if a meteor smashes it into fragments and ends life completely.



Because the human species goes extinct if people don't reproduce.

The real problem is the 2,000 million chinese, 1,200 million indians, 1,200 africans.

Keep in mind these population figures from africa:

1950 - 200 million

1980 - 400 million

2005 - 800 million

2019 - around 1,200 million

They are replicating like bacteria. Meanwhile Europe has remained almost stable in population within that time period, and the US has only risen slightly in comparison.

Imagine the US with the 44% of non-whites gone from it, that would leave twice as much space and twice as many resources. Suddenly every calms down, forests regrow, people have room to move. Not to mention the crime rate dropping by 70% or more.

That's quality of life.


They blame the internet but the actual cause is the erosion of identity and belonging thanks to mass migration and the brainwashing of the education system.


Mental disorders such as trannyism and furries? Yea, no shit.



>Well I don't endorse electroshock or political indoctrination

there goes your social credit score you snake

YEP. And this too.


They are brainwashing your children in the government schools.

They forcefully take your children and brainwash them. They wipe away our culture and brainwash them to obey.

It happened to you. It's why you once thought nihilism, depression, helplessness, and submissiveness was normal.

They brainwash the children, and it happened to you.
