Official narrative

In terms of most years of life lost due to disability or death adjusted for population size 2016, the WHO ranked the USA third (behind China and India) not only on depression, but also anxiety and alcohol/drug use.[1]

Causes

A 2017 article suggesting a link between teenage depression and use of smartphones noted that "in just the five years between 2010 and 2015, the number of U.S. teens who felt useless and joyless – classic symptoms of depression – surged 33 percent in large national surveys."[2]

  • Could depression might be linked to the phenomenon that Amy Baker Benjamin terms "moral passiveness"?[3]
