It’s well-understood that young people’s mental health is suffering; it’s the subject of news headlines, dinner conversations, and benefit strategy sessions as employers explore how to support families. On this episode of the Business Group on Health podcast, we dig deeper into why children today are experiencing such acute challenges with psychiatrist Laura Erickson-Schroth, Chief Medical Officer of the Jed Foundation. We discuss what’s contributing to anxiety, depression and suicidality among youth, helpful and unhelpful ways adults can respond, resources available in a crisis and ways employers can help.
