Interesting, how the rate of depression goes from 4% at 12 years old to 18% at 17 years old and the rate of depression is 6.8% for teenage boys and 20.0% for females.

Wonder what the percentage of 17 year old females who have had a depressive episode the last year?

Interesting, how social media has caused such a rapid decline in teenage girls and young females mental health recently.

Seems as though the mental health of teenage girls and young women overall is declining rapidly.

Teenage males and young men on the hand are becoming content just playing video games, playing sports and working.

So, I saw social media wasn't mentioned in the link you presented. Do you have proof of causation being solely/mainly social media, or is that your own correlation without further research to corroborate?

Oh, and I see this just presents data for one year. Am I missing in there where it says whether it's an increase, decrease, or similar to before as part of assessing the situation?

As one point of research...what biological event often goes on for adolescents between the ages of 12-17 that might often affect mood, especially for females?
