    Suicide rate is still higher for elderly Americans. Debt from medical conditions is listed as the major cause.

    Loneliness is easy to understand.

    If you have to be constantly on guard, in order to avoid offending the mobs, you are going to limit your exchanges.

    If you keep your nose in your phone, your human contact is limited.

    I wonder how much of this might have to do with increasing levels of diversity and more difficulty fitting in.
    Or if diversity has some sort of negative correlation (statistically) to probability of finding a compatible romantic partner.

    An additional cause of teen anxiety may be financial stresses of parents, in rural areas, and the fact that a large segment of the teens now in city areas have parents who were born in other countries.

    There is a lot to says.

    Future looks bad, extremism, either at the left, the right is rising, people are globally becoming more extreme. The economy is harsh, the cities are more and more overcrowded.

    I think that internet and new technologies may play an important role. I'm a millenial and grew up with new technologies, I imposed myself some internet/computer diet and experienced a large improvement of my stress/anxiety level, but I live in the countryside and when not on the internet, I can walk through forest or go to the beach. I'm not sure that young people living in the big city can relax that way.

    They just to find a clique with interests they have and learn to forget the other stuff if they don't like you who cares and if you offend others screw them.

    oh my. They have more luxury than any humans on earth before them, and they're breaking down.
    This is a failure of their parents to prepare them for life, which has always been hard.
    Too much powder and not enough wooden spoons put to their butts.

    should have stuck to out of pocket payment instead of buying into the fallacy of insurance providing security.
    It has raised costs and it is their fault for wasting their money and trust on it.
