Studies show that today’s children experience more stress and anxiety than institutionalized psychiatric patients had in the 1950s. Stress registers at an all-time high across many age demographics and results in serious health consequences. One of the most troubling outcomes of stress materializes in the number of adults under the influence of anti-depressants and mind-altering anti-psychotic medications. Nearly one in four women over the age of 50 consumes anti-depressants while nearly 15% of the population relies on pharmaceutical antipsychotics. Astronomically high stress levels combine with performance pressures and lofty expectations to produce a growing faction of people near redlined with stress. A young generation of children bears witness to adults and parents needing dangerous pharmaceutical drugs to cope with daily pressures.
