mental health issues are prevalent among young adults
Sometimes referred to as the “anxious generation,” today’s generation of college students and young professionals are actually much more likely to talk about mental health than their parents or grandparents. This generation is closer than ever to breaking the stigma around mental illness in a time when only 44 percent of adults—and less than 20 percent of children and adolescents—with diagnosable mental health problems receive the treatment they need.
