Indicators of despair rising among Gen X-ers entering middle age

Indicators of despair — depression, suicidal ideation, drug use
and alcohol abuse — are rising among Americans in their late 30s
and early 40s across most demographic groups, according to new
research. These findings suggest that the increase in ‘deaths of
despair’ observed among low-educated middle-aged white Baby Boomers
in recent studies may begin to impact the youngest members of
Generation X more broadly in the years to come.
