An increasing number of young folks are being afflicted with mental illness ( Straits Times: More young people seeking help for mental health issues ); personally I feel this is arising because we're encountering a future largely rooted in uncertainty and there is hardly a plausible recourse in sight-not now, not for a very long time to come.

Back then it was simple - attain academic certifications, get married, purchase a HDB flat, have kids, subsequently pass on due to old age or illness. Not to mention the means by which these milestones can be achieved were extremely formulaic.

Fast forward to today, kids and the young are still being groomed using mindsets of the past, yet upon reaching adulthood they discover a world which is vastly different from what they were told existed. Nobody actually knows the solutions to combating the rising costs of living or job security issues. Not our parents, nor our leaders know what the hell to do except to remain stuck on the pathway established by previous generation of leaders and forefathers.

what is learn is to adapt.

if you can't adapt, you fall by the wayside.

nothing you learn in school prepares you for the wider society even the workplace.

this has happened to the generation before me,  my current generation and the generation after.

absolutely nothing to do with the causation of mental illness .....

"domain of experts"? .... likely the domain of kum gongs ..... what an idiotic opinion
