So for my third essay, I am thinking about writing a research paper in the increase of depression in teens and young adults. I mainly plan to focus on media aspects and other reasons as well. I believe media plays the biggest part in this increase. I have had recent incidents where I had to talk to younger teens about depressions, why they are depressed, and how to deal with depression the right, such as playing sports or music rather than cutting, drugs, and alcohol. Hopefully I can find a good amount of research on this topic and bring you all my ideas!
