Since 2013, Major Depression diagnoses have increased 47% for Millennials. These statistics are concerning but understandable. Millennials could be one of the unluckiest generations in over a century. We have lived through mass shootings, a major terrorist attack, two wars, two recessions, a climate crisis, a global pandemic AND we’re only in our thirties. With stagnant wages, the astronomical cost of education, limited access to growth within employment, it’s easy to see why people would feel hopeless. All these factors are then compounded by race, class, gender, ability, etc. so it makes sense that Millennials would be reporting more anxiety, depression, loneliness, burnout, perfectionism, and imposter syndrome today.
