Millennial Resolutions: Why Finding a Quality Health-Care Provider Should Be at the Top of the List by Sophia L. Thomas, DNP, APRN, FNP-BC, PPCNP-BC, FNAP, FAANP
There are plenty of people who kick off the new year with get-healthy goals. For millennials, that’s not necessarily hitting the gym or cleaning up their diet. This generation struggles with a unique subset of health concerns that call for more diligent health-care provider care.
- Addiction: Over the course of a single decade, the rate of alcohol-related deaths among millennials rose by nearly 70 percent and the rate of drug-related deaths rose by nearly 110 percent.
- Depression: Since 2013, millennials have seen a 47 percent increase in depression diagnoses and 20 percent will go untreated.
- Insomnia: This “tired generation” is twice as likely to experience constant exhaustion than the generation before them.
Millennials may be the first generation not to outlive their parents, but there’s hope. Nurse practitioners (NPs) are more accessible, spend more time with patients, are trained to provide treatment and counseling, and provide care in underserved areas. If you struggle with access to care, use the NP finder to find a qualified health-care provider near you.
