The ADHD gender gap

While it is normal for everyone to have trouble focusing, those with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) often have severe symptoms that can cause a lot of difficulties at home, with friends or at school or university. Unfortunately, ADHD often manifests differently in girls than it does in boys and, as a result, many girls are never diagnosed. This means that many girls are never given the treatment they need, and are left to struggle mentally, socially and academically. 

Vaccine inequality

The Coronavirus that causes COVID-19 may be indiscriminate but vaccine distribution is not. As more people are being vaccinated against COVID-19, the issue of vaccine inequity becomes more prevalent. According to The New York Times, the vaccination rates in North America and Europe are 77 and 76 doses administered per 100 people respectively, while the rate in Africa is just 4.2 doses administered per 100 people.

The disordered eating dilemma

While eating disorders have received extensive coverage over many years, the topic of disordered eating has received far less attention. Disordered eating, or unhealthy relationships with food, are very common. They have, however, been normalised to such a degree that many people do not recognise them as a problem or know that they suffer from them.

Toxic relationships

For many students, university is the ideal time to explore dating and relationships. Unfortunately, this is not necessarily a positive experience for everyone. Toxic relationships are a prevalent phenomenon among university students and can have many negative consequences for those involved in these relationships.
