(John Ransom, Headline USA) The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which mismanaged the COVID pandemic by using unproven methods, is now warning those methods created a mental health crisis for teens in America.
“These data echo a cry for help,” said Debra Houry, a deputy director at the CDC.
“The COVID-19 pandemic has created traumatic stressors that have the potential to further erode students’ mental well-being,” she said, reported the Washington Post.
The CDC says that four of 10 teens “feel persistently hopeless” and that one in five has contemplated suicide at one point.
Between 2009 and 2019, the percentage of teens who reported having “persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness” rose from 26 percent to 37 percent.
In 2021, the figure rose to 44 percent. https://t.co/k2alSdTeRm

“Our data make it clear that young people experienced significant disruption and adversity during the pandemic and are experiencing a mental health crisis,” said Kathleen Ethier, director of the CDC’s Division of Adolescent and School Health, according to NBC News.
Yes, along with everybody else in America who was subjected to mandatory lockdowns, mandatory masking and mandatory vaccinations– by the same alleged experts who now want to solve the teen mental health crisis that they created.
All they need is more money.
The study was funded through the COVID relief package, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act.
The news comes just days after President Joe Biden submitted his proposed 2023 budget, including an increase in funding for Health and Human Services, and not surprisingly, an increase in funding for mental health treatment.
$8 billion was allocated for behavioral health in 2021, specifically for pandemic related behavioral issues.
Biden’s 2023 budget includes $57.1 billion for behavioral health, which will cover a variety of issues, not just related to the pandemic or teens.
The CDC reported that blacks, Latinos, gays and females were inordinately affected by the pandemic restrictions compared to white males, according to the Washington Post.
