The researches find that the suicide deaths have increased among millennials, according to a report issued by the Trust for America’s Health and the Well Being Trust. But In the report, Rhea K. Farberman, from the Trust for America’s Health, and colleagues address increases in young adult deaths due to alcohol and drug misuse and suicide with a focus on millennials, ages 23 to 38 years, in 2019.
The suicide deaths
According to the report, the number of drug deaths among young adults has increased by 400% during the last two decades; in 2017, for young adults ages 18 to 34 years, there were nearly 31 drug overdose deaths per 100,000 people. Because Between 2007 and 2017, drug-related deaths increased 108%, alcohol death rates increased 69%, and suicide deaths increased 35 percent among those aged 18 to 34 years.
Recommendations to address the causes of substance use disorders and mental health issues include ensuring access to evidence-based prevention, screening, and treatment; using price strategies to limit alcohol consumption; reducing the multigenerational impact of substance use disorders; investing more in research on nonopioid and nondrug pain treatments; providing evidence-based substance misuse treatment within the criminal justice system; and creating substance misuse and suicide prevention programs that address the crisis in novel ways.
Mental health issues
An alcoholic beverage is a drink that contains ethanol (commonly called alcohol). Alcoholic beverages are divide into three general classes: beers, wines, and spirits. Alcoholic beverages are consume in almost every nation, and most nations have laws that regulate their production, sale, and consumption.
In particular, such laws specify the minimum age at which a person may legally buy or drink alcoholic beverages. This minimum age can be as low as 16 years, as in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands, and Switzerland. Most nations, however, set the minimum age at 18 years.
In the United States, the minimum age is 21 years. Alcoholic beverages are a part of most European cultures, and children in these cultures may occasionally drink alcohol during meals with their family. Therefore In Germany, 14-year-old persons may drink low-alcohol beverages if their parents are present.
The production and consumption of alcohol occurs in most cultures of the world, from hunter-gatherer peoples to nation-states. Alcoholic beverages are often an important part of social events in these cultures. In many cultures, drinking plays a significant role in social interaction mainly because of alcohol’s neurological effects. “If we fail millennials, we’re failing the next generation and we’ll not break this cycle of despair,” Benjamin F. Miller, Psy.D., chief strategy officer for the Well Being Trust, said in a statement.
