The Voices of Young People Podcast: How Expectations Can Help or Hurt Gen Z

 In Mental Health, Voices of Young People

The Voices of Young People Podcast is a digital space where we listen directly to young people as they respond to our research and share about the issues impacting their lives. Season 7 coincides with our Springtide Series on Mental Health and features 16 young people discussing where they get messages about mental health, the people they turn to for support, how a sense of purpose plays a role in their overall mental well-being, and more. Camden and Kaiya visited the podcast to talk about how they’ve dealt with mental health and who has helped them along the way. In this excerpt, they speak specifically about expectations and how it can affect mental health. Watch below:
