A recent CDC study revealed that American teenage girls are experiencing higher levels of depression, sadness, and suicidal thoughts compared to previous years.

The percentage of girls reporting persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness has significantly increased.

“Fifty-seven percent of girls said they had persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness. That’s up from 36% in 2011 and nearly double 29% of boys in the same category in 2021,” the report noted. (Trending: Democrat Targets U.S. Troops With New Gun Control Law)

Factors contributing to this include concerns about safety, experiences of sexual violence, and isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The study also highlighted the challenges faced by LGBQ+ teens, with a significant portion reporting persistent sadness and considering suicide.

The report recommends measures such as improving school connectedness, increasing access to mental health services, and providing inclusive education and anti-harassment policies.

These findings are based on a survey of 17,000 U.S. high school students and indicate a concerning trend in adolescent mental health.
