Weaponising The Shadow Pandemic

Have you heard of 'The Shadow Pandemic'?  Some people posting about it are concerned about the mental health of young people right now. Some are silent on the subject of vaccinations. Some are anti masks. The term itself has become incredibly loaded. Is this just the new more palatable way to be anti lockdown? Are we using the mental health of children to push an agenda? Or can two things be true at the same time?

Plus, can’t seem to stop online shopping right now? Welcome to the endless pit of desire. 

And what is 'concern trolling' and has it actually saved any lives?
