Why do you think "anxiety and depression" is so prevalent amongst people nowadays?

My guess would be over stimulation of everything in the world. The amount of information that is thrown at us from such a young age in this world of tech is crazy. This is just my guess without reading into it but I would defiantly point to environmental triggers.

The advent of technology has made the world so individualized. Social media platforms has made it easy for people to live false lives. Many people compare their lives with others based on what they see on social media their by cause anxiety and depression

the world has been taken over by wrong people responsible for mass media.. over the generations they've managed to make people more ruthless, dispassionate, self centered and mindless.. right from what kind of thoughts to cultivate and portray to disease causing food to self destructive or solely self preservative attitude.. they portray the world as cut throat and in the guise of entertainment they embed strong messages of hate and aggression and a whole load of negative emotions in the subconscious of unwitting people... 50% of the issue is generated by these people in the media and the other 50% we ourselves are responsible for screwing up.. since we are all born with free will and quite some amount of deciphering power, we behave so frustratingly foolish as to accept those messages and even cultivate them to blend in our personality... this kind of attitude is what has robbed people of peace nowadays...

Pressure and too much expectation from the society. Pressure to be like others when you should be just yourself.
At times, it's disappointment from people

1. Our relationships and community ties are weaker.
2. We’re more focused on goals such as money, fame, and image.
3. Our expectations are too high, probably because of the emphasis on “you can be anything you want to be” and highly positive self-views.

I don't think it's anymore prevalent nowadays as it has been in the past, i just think a lot of times in the past it just didn't get diagnosed as anxiety or depression, and it's not looked down upon anymore in today's society
