Giving makes us happy

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/BulletinArticle

Abstract

There is enough research on the topic to be concerned with the health and happiness of our youth. Obesity and allergies have been on the rise for some time. Mental health problems also affect a lot more now. Depression and suicide rates have risen steadily in the past 60 years. Violence, anti-social behaviour and binge drinking among young people is now so prevalent as to be viewed by some as the norm rather than the exception. Moreover, all of the above phenomena are now being observed in younger age brackets across the full spectra of socio-economic strata and demographics.
