Many scientists have found that one’s
self-esteem is closely related to their mental health. Severe
body dissatisfaction can lead to low self-esteem. This leads
to depression and anxiety. According to several estimates,
two million teens suffer from severe depression.
In a survey,
they have found that 7 in 10 adolescents are depressed, and
girls are more likely to be depressed than boys. Severely
low self-esteems can lead to a poor mental health, leading
to suicide. Suicide is the third leading cause of death among
adolescents. One in every three adolescents has friends who
have talked about or tried suicide. Unfortunately, the rate
of suicide had tripled in the past ten years, as 2000 American
teens have committed suicide.
