Our Issues

According to 2015 census data, millennials (those born after 1980) have surpassed “baby boomers” as the largest living population. They will soon inherit leadership positions in a world that is complex and challenged by global issues requiring knowledge, perspective and readiness. Yet the health and wellness of young people remains an underexplored policy area at a time when there is an alarming rise in mental, behavioral, and emotional health issues among teens and young adults. Higher education policies do not always adequately cover the problems that are occurring on college campuses – from bigotry and sexual assault to eating disorders, depression and suicide.

The Mary Christie Foundation provides thought leadership among key influencers where cross-disciplinary solutions can begin to emerge.
