Everyone has been hit hard mentally and emotionally during COVID-19, but there’s growing research to suggest that young adults – that special 18-26 age group – are suffering more than we might think. GenZ and Millennials had already been flagged as possibly the loneliest generation, even before the pandemic. Now, many are faced with increased social isolation and a devastating economy at a time when, developmentally, they should be building independence and identity through higher education or work.
In this episode of Shrinking It Down, Gene and Khadijah share insights on how to navigate these unique challenges, including ways to help young adults maintain a sense of purpose despite everything they can’t control.
