The State of Religion & Young People 2022: Mental Health — Resources

The resources referenced in numbered marginal notes in The State of Religion & Young People 2022 can be found at the bottom of this page.

In the Key Findings section we presented data that is intended to offer faith leaders a sense of the big picture—larger trends that shed light on the religious and spiritual lives of young people at a time when so many report struggling with their mental health. Directly below are additional breakdowns of some of the findings reported in that section.
