Depression And Anxiety Among Teenage Girls Soars Amid Pressures From Social Media

Post  dirge on Mon Aug 22, 2016 7:30 pm

The number of teenage girls suffering from depression or anxiety has soared in the last 10 years - and children whose parents went to university are more likely to experience symptoms, according to a government report.

The number of girls aged 14 to 15 experiencing symptoms has risen 10% in a decade, and those from more affluent and better educated backgrounds have fared worse, in the research seen by the Times.


Experts say social media, “pushy parents” and peer pressure are factors contributing to the rise - which has only been seen among girls, not boys.
