Thrive: A Youth Mental-Health Summit

For many, COVID-19’s rise in 2020 precipitated a steep decline in mental health. As depression and anxiety hit staggering highs around the world, one demographic group suffered perhaps more than most: young people. With the erosion of real-world social contacts and activities, and little prospect of a plannable future, young people today continue to experience mental-health issues at alarming rates.

In this forum, The Atlantic convenes medical experts, educators, families, and young people themselves to explore some of the tools that can provide a path back to a life of happiness and purpose.
