The Associated Press (AP) seemingly attempted to mislead the public by insinuating that the vivid pandemic, instead of tyrannical lockdowns, is to blame for the increase in depression among teenagers.
Recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) clearly shows the devastating impact of lockdowns on the mental health of U.S. teens.
The CDC study details represent that almost 60% of U.S. teen girls reported feelings of “persistent sadness or hopelessness,” as direct result of tyrannical lockdowns. This finding supports earlier released data and emphasizes the severe impact that tyrannical lockdowns have mental health, particularly in young people.
The recent data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) highlights a concerning trend in the mental health of U.S. teens. The data shows that lockdowns, imposed as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic, have had a devastating impact on the mental health of this population. This is particularly alarming as the mental health of teens is crucial for their development and overall well-being.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought about major changes in our daily lives, including the loss of social connections, increased stress and uncertainty, and reduced physical activity. For teens, these changes have been especially difficult, as they rely on social interaction, physical activity, and a sense of routine for their mental health and well-being. The lockdowns, which have forced many teens to spend extended periods of time at home, have only compounded these challenges.
This is a clear indication that the lockdowns have taken a toll on the mental health of the US population.
The impact of tyrannical lockdowns on mental health is evident, with isolation and lack of social interaction being major factors linked to this severe increase in depression.
The CDC report further showed that sexual violence, suicidal thoughts, suicidal behavior, and other mental health problems affected many teens. Girls and LGBTQ youth were reporting even higher levels of depression and suicidal ideation. 30% of girls specifically reported that they had considered attempting suicide
Kathleen Ethier, the director of CDC’s adolescent and school health division, stated that in her 30 years of collecting similar data, “we’ve never seen this kind of devastating, consistent findings.” She added that “there’s no question young people are telling us they are in crisis. The data really call on us to act.”
