    Although its fun watching them get beat up with facts without people actually feeding them by getting angry



    The rampant and widespread stupidity of so many people in this world is definitely adding to depression of people with a brain




    What are you whining about, it was your ilk who started the partisan bickering.


    can you explain how this guy is not a troll but those who posted like this person but with a different slant is a troll?

    Seems that if you take them you can increase your risk.


    I've posted links to studies showing that depression is grossly over-diagnosed, why not argue facts and show links instead of just spouting "bullshit"?

    The recent surge in Depression has little or nothing to do with "Democrats or the GOP".

    Peer reviewed study, perhaps you have some actual evidence to the contrary other than your speculation to the authors motives.



    That's how science works, perhaps you don't understand this.

    Americans are lonelier than ever, with almost 50 percent of those surveyed feeling left out or lonely. Sadly, it seems the younger you are, the lonelier you feel. “While we know that this is a group that’s coming of age and making life transitions, these findings give us a clear and surprising picture of how this generation perceives themselves.."

    Good article:


    "Itís always tough to be a teen and todayís plugged-in teens have a whole new set of issues that can stem from social media overuse.

    A very recent study, published by Clinical Psychological Science, revealed that adolescents between the ages of 13 and 18 who spent more time on social media and smartphones were also more likely to report mental health issues, as opposed to teens who spent more time hanging out with friends, exercising, doing homework, reading print media and attending religious services."

    I know this isn't a trivial matter, but the thread title sounded like a standard 80s movie - Major Depression. That's the decade of emo rule.

    ^^This^^

    I've told both my kids, do not substitute your phone for actual personal relationships. Too many kids these days focus more on how many "likes" they get or how many followers they have, rather than try to cultivate talking to people one on one.

    This was a good article. Teens don't even want to drive anymore. Most of my friends, literally had to force their kids to get their drivers license so they didn't have to haul them all over the place. I remember marking my calendar down to the day I could get my license..4 days after I turned 16. It was the path to freedom which included a lot of socialization. I have college students who did not have a drivers license until they were 25 and it was a necessity to travel to their clinical sites.
    Thanks from pragmatic, bajisima and Ian Jeffrey
