Being Human

Every week our panel of Shrinks breaks down trending topics of psychology in the news that we call Being Human.

The Netflix special John Mulaney and the Sack Lunch Bunch covers numerous topics—one being childhood anxiety—so let’s explore how mental health issues play a role in the youth of America.

Concern about mental health cuts across gender, racial and socio-economic lines, with roughly equal shares of teens across demographic groups saying it is a significant issue in their community.

According to a Pew Research Center survey, about four-in-ten teens say that bullying, drug addiction, and alcohol consumption are major problems affecting people their age in the area where they live.

This is a pretty noticeable difference between the seven-in-ten teens that see anxiety and depression as a major problem among their peers, whether they personally experience these issues or not.
