Book Club – The Anxious Generation by Johnathan Haidt

After more than a decade of stability or improvement, the mental health of adolescents plunged in the early 2010s. Rates of depression, anxiety, self-harm, and suicide rose sharply, more than doubling on many measures. Why? Join us to read about a compelling case about how the use of smartphones and social media have caused a mental health crisis for teens. Read the chapters on your own and join us in-person for the discussion each week.
