Voices of Young People Podcast: Gen Z and Purpose
The Voices of Young People Podcast is a digital space where we listen directly to young people as they respond to our research and share about the issues impacting their lives. Season 7 coincides with our Springtide Series on Mental Health and features 16 young people discussing where they get messages about mental health, the people they turn to for support, how a sense of purpose plays a role in their overall mental well-being, and more. Joe and George visited the podcast to talk about how receiving help, both personally and professionally, has been formative in their mental health journeys. In this excerpt, they share how connecting to a higher power helps them understand their place in this world, and some of the pitfalls that come with that process.
