The impact of intergenerational injustice on young people’s mental health and sense of belonging in communities
About the study
Young people today face unique challenges that their parents’ and grandparents’ generations did not face. Many young people are now unable to afford rent or a deposit on a home in the cities where secure employment matching their levels of educational attainment exist. Young people are graduating university with record levels of student loans and other debt.
Young parents in settings like the UK and USA are being saddled with significant childcare and nursery costs, such that in many families, one parent (usually a mother) must sacrifice their own employment to care for children, leaving families reliant on one income and less financially resilient during the cost-of-living crisis.
No research has looked at how young people, their parents/legal guardians and people who develop policies (i.e., policy experts) think these issues impact young people’s mental health and sense of belonging. In this research project, we would like to interview you to see what you think about this topic.
What will it involve?
Involves a one-to-one interview with a member of the research team that will last up to 60 minutes.
The interview will be about how intergenerational injustice affects your mental health and sense of belonging.
