Gen Z Mental Health - Springtide Research Institute

Make mental-health friendly spaces the standard for Gen Z

Young people need schools, homes, workplaces, and religious settings focused on encouraging mental health, not just responding to mental illness or crisis. Through our ongoing research on mental health, we’ll show you how.

I’d like to be involved:

“We are all Energizer bunnies running on fumes, trying to live with this. We don't have time to take care of our mental health. It's a choice. And it can't be a choice anymore. It needs to be a necessity.”

—JJ, Age 15

We’ll show you how to prevent crisis, not just respond to it

Spaces that focus on forging connections, aligning expectations, and helping young people discover a sense of purpose are PROACTIVE in promoting mental health among young people.

Qualities of mental-health friendly spaces

Connection is about creating spaces of belonging. 
Expectations is about making sure standards for success are matched by the tools to meet those standards. 
Purpose is about helping young people connect with something bigger than themselves.

Cultivated from our research, we’ll show you how to put these in motion in your space
