Young People Don’t Want To Be Called ‘Snowflakes’ Because It Damages Their Mental Health

Par for the course.

According to research from a U.K.-based insurance firm, Aviva, 72% of 16-24 year-olds (note: this includes overlap with Generation Z) think the term “snowflake” is unfair and could negatively affect their mental health, reports The Telegraph.

It was also uncovered that young people are more prone to experiencing stress, depression, and anxiety in the last year than their elders. “Almost half of adults between 16 and 24 said they had experienced stress or anxiety, compared to just over a third of all UK adults,” notes The Telegraph.

Additionally, one in three young people were found to be “uncomfortable” talking about mental health issues, and more likely than their elders to say that they are experiencing a problem for which they have not sought help.

“Our findings suggest that young adults are more likely to be experiencing mental health problems, so using a phrase which criticises this age group could add to this issue,” said Aviva medical expert Dr. Doug Wright.
