    I agree whole heartedly that twentysomethings are struggling to grow up and for good reason. In my upcoming book, Escape from Dark Places: Guideposts to Hope in an Age of Anxiety & Depression, I make the case that the world in which our Millennial kids grew up (and the next generation is in many ways growing up too) is causing a rise in anxiety and depression, which is why suicide is now the second leading cause of death among this age group. My take is that as parents, mentors, and church leaders, we have an obligation to understand and communicate with these generations, and that they should also be willing to understand and communicate with us. Through intergenerational dialog, we can slow the rising mental health trend, stop the stigma of anxiety and depression, and spread hope. http://amzn.to/1OC3WiY

      Ambra, this sounds like an incredible book! Thanks for sharing your thoughts and for the work you are doing to help older generations understand the crisis that exists in our world today. I wanted to talk about suicide, but I had to cut it for time. That is indeed a massive crisis.

      Thanks,

      Andrew
