“ In Canada, 80% of father-deprived adolescents are in psychiatric hospitals according to The Canadian Children’s Rights Council.”
No. That is so wrong it’s ridiculous. What the numbers mean is that 80% of the adolescent population in psychiatric hospitals are father deprived. And that’s not in Canada, that’s in the States. The source of these numbers is mentioned right underneath:
“ Sources: National Fatherhood Initiative (U.S.A.), US Bureau of Census (U.S.A.), FBI (U.S.A.)”
All I did was a copy paste of your sentence and I found the source.
