Unintentional Correlation

I think unintentional correlation is fun because we use correlation as causation so much. This article is about children’s mental health and how quickly it is degrading as a society. There is a lot of speculation on the cause but I found the first 2 paragraphs here have a very unintended correlation. From the article:

Children and adolescents in the U.S. today reap the benefits of decades of medical and psychological research. We are able to diagnose and effectively treat mental health conditions to a degree that wasn’t possible only a generation ago, with a wider arsenal of pharmacological options and increasingly targeted and sophisticated non-invasive therapies.

The quality of kids’ mental health should be trending up — but the opposite is happening. Kids today are struggling more than ever.

oh dear
