CDC: One quarter of young adults contemplated suicide during pandemic
quote:

One in four young adults between the ages of 18 and 24 say they've considered suicide in the past month because of the pandemic, according to new CDC data that paints a bleak picture of the nation's mental health during the crisis.

The data also flags a surge of anxiety and substance abuse, with more than 40 percent of those surveyed saying they experienced a mental or behavioral health condition connected to the Covid-19 emergency. The CDC study analyzed 5,412 survey respondents between June 24 and 30.

The toll is falling heaviest on young adults, caregivers, essential workers and minorities. While 10.7 percent of respondents overall reported considering suicide in the previous 30 days, 25.5 percent of those between 18 to 24 reported doing so. Almost 31 percent of self-reported unpaid caregivers and 22 percent of essential workers also said they harbored such thoughts. Hispanic and Black respondents similarly were well above the average.

Roughly 30.9 percent of respondents said they had symptoms of anxiety or depression. Roughly 26.3 respondents reported trauma and stress-related disorder because of the pandemic.

Another 13.3 percent of respondents said they have turned to substance use, including alcohol and prescription or illicit drugs, to cope with stress from the pandemic.

I have a feeling we would be better off without that quarter.

I had a few sleepless nights because I thought my business was going under, but suicide? GTFO.

It’s true. I work with the public and people are miserable. Many people feel hopeless. I try to stay upbeat, but it has taken a toll on my soul.

These are the experts. They apparently have no ability to gauge what is realistic or not.

I didn't think about suicide, but my anxiety and depression are at all time highs.

That suicide number seems high, but I’m sure the amount of people considering it has gone up considerably, particularly among young people. I can absolutely confirm the substance abuse thing. Drinking particularly. You know it’s bad when 25 year olds are talking about “trying to cut back” and all their friends nod in agreement.

Locking down was a big psychological ask for young people, particularly single young people and/or people that also lost their jobs.

Why are people so weak minded? I don't get it. We all live in the same world, it's not THAT crazy. Suck it up.

People don't need all the stuff they think they need. Shows how dependent we are on consumerism and "Experiences." Can you not be alone with yourself, or with your significant other or family for a few months? If you can't, you might want to re-evaluate what you value.
