Study finds depression in millennials on the rise
from University of Liverpool via Medical Xpress
New research, conducted by the University of Liverpool and University College London, has found that young people today are more likely to be depressed and to self-harm than they were 10 years ago, but antisocial behavior and substance use – often thought to go hand-in-hand with mental ill-health – are in decline. Instead, the study, published in the International
Journal of Epidemiology
, found poor sleep, obesity and poor body image are becoming more common, suggesting the risk factors associated with mental ill-health might be changing.
