The Resilience of Youth Has Limits

As countries scramble to respond to the pandemic, mental health professionals are warning of an emerging youth mental health crisis, The New York Times reports.
 
Suicides and suicidal thoughts are up among young people as critical years are put on hold by job losses, stalled social lives, and romantic prospects—and having to move back in with parents.
