A recent study conducted by researchers at the University of Minnesota & Vermont have found that there seems to be a link between social acceptance and the incidence of depression & anxiety.
According to their findings, teens who were readily accepted by peers were less likely to internalize emotions and develop anxiety or depression in young adulthood.
What do you think? What was high school like for you? Did you have trouble connecting to others? What solutions do you believe may help youth today?
I find looking back at this post from 9 years ago interesting. Social acceptance can help protect against depression. I wonder how social media and covid has impacted people's feelings of social acceptance? I would assume it would have a negative effect but perhaps some social media groups, like this one, has helped people feel more accepted and better able to find likeminded peers. What are your thoughts?
