(Maria Lencki – Fox News) Fox News contributor Dr. Marc Siegel says social media may have a lot to do with America’s mental health crisis among teenage girls.
A recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revealed teen girls are battling record levels of violence, sadness and suicide risk. The findings also revealed sexual violence among teen girls has increased 20% between 2017 through 2021, while hopelessness increased from 36% to 57%.
“This is shocking,” Siegel told “Special Report” on Monday. “… Two out of three girls are now hopeless or saddened to the point of that … 20% considering suicide…one out of ten or more raped and sexual violence up 60% just over the last few years.”
While the pandemic increased isolation in the United States, Siegel said it also increased dependence on social media.
