Many In Gen Z Are Afflicted With Pandemic-Induced Depression

Sadly, it comes as no surprise that mental health issues have skyrocketed worldwide, especially after the reactions from governments around the world to address the Covid-19 pandemic.

The infamous World Health Organization has acknowledged this obvious reality; the globalist group issued a scientific brief claiming that the Covid-19 pandemic triggered a “25% increase in [the] prevalence of anxiety and depression worldwide.”

Millions of Gen Zers are now suffering from mental health problems, often exacerbated by the pandemic, according to a new survey.

Generation Z is the third-largest population in America, after millennials and baby boomers, per National Pulse.

The survey measuring reported mental health outcomes was led by Indiana-based data-management company Harmony Healthcare IT (HHI). Its findings came from a little over 1,000 individuals aged 18 to 24.

HHI’s conclusions proved to be concerning. A total of 42% of respondents reported having been diagnosed with a mental health condition, with 1 in 4 of the diagnoses issued during the pandemic. Nearly 70% of those surveyed believe the pandemic has negatively affected their mental health, with an alarming 57% currently taking medication for their mental health condition.

Anxiety seemed to play a huge role as well; 85 percent of surveyed zoomers indicated they are distressed about the future. Other stats include that almost 1 in 4 zoomers reported having more bad days than good in the month of August and that nearly a third of Gen Z rated their overall health in 2022 as “bad.”

The National Pulse argued the study is further evidence that
“social-distancing measures adopted by most governments around the world” in wake of the Covid-19 pandemic harmed many young people so greatly that it by far “outstrip[ped] any damage they might have suffered from contracting the virus.”

Physical activity seems to be declining worldwide as well. Children are exercising less and spending more time seated than ever before after the Covid-19 lockdowns, a recent study found.
