Gen Z’s Mental Health, Economic Distress and Technology
FRB of St. Louis
2024.05.23
Mental health indicators for younger generations have worsened in the past decade. Poor mental health can have economic consequences (PDF) for individuals, their families, workplaces and communities. It can also be a barrier to finishing school and to entering or staying in the labor market, and it can reduce labor productivity, all of which could result in long-term consequences for young adults’ professional development and earnings.
For example, the 2024 State of Economic Equity reported that in 2022 the rate of depression in young adults, 18-24 years old, who are members of Generation Z, was over 12% compared with 8% for adults 25-64 years old. This difference can deepen economic disparities between the two groups.
