The Mental Health Crisis Facing Our Youth Comes Down to Helicopter Parenting

  • Memyself&I

    Helicopter parenting may be partially to blame for some mental health crisis in some children and young adults, but not the whole picture “Back in the day” people did not even admit to having mental health issues, such as Generalized Anxiety Disorder, or phobias, or OCD, without a great deal of stigma and shame. Those that did seek treatment prayed that it would not show up during a job search. Nowadays many young people are open to recognizing their mental health concerns and seeking treatment. I would think that would contribute to the rise in treatment demands.
