Just now on the news, it was said that HS & college students are more depressed these days (news said 2007), than back during the Great Depression. Some of it has to do w/ the amt of kids taking anti-depressents. What does everyone think about that? Surprised? Not surprised? I can't say I'm surprised. There are a LOT more complications, events, situations, pressures, etc. in life NOW than back then, so there's more to be stressed about these days. I also think it's safe to say that not only students & other young people are more stressed out now, but EVERYONE in general. It's unfortunate, but that's life.
