Recently, the Institute of Psychology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences released the “Report on the Development of China’s National Mental Health (2019-2020)”. The study found that the average level of anxiety among young people aged 18-34 is higher than that of other age groups in adulthood. Unemployed/unemployed/retirees have the highest level of depression, followed by student groups, with college students as the main body, and service industry personnel, self-employed individuals, and company employees. Professional and technical personnel have the lowest depression scores.
In addition, the higher the degree of education, the higher the level of mental health, especially the mental health of people with a bachelor’s degree or above is higher than that of people with lower education. Among them, the detection rate of high risk of depression in people with high school and below is 18.1%, which is higher than that of college The population with bachelor degree and above is nearly 5 percentage points higher.
Will the higher the income be, the healthier the mentality will be? The study pointed out that the difference in mental health is mainly manifested in that the mental health of people with a monthly income of less than 2,000 yuan is significantly lower than that of other groups, but there is no significant difference between the middle and higher monthly income. Experts said: “This shows that there is a non-linear relationship between income and mental health. Too low income is not conducive to mental health, but above middle income, rising income does not significantly improve mental health.”
