« Generation Alpha » is defined as children born between 2010 and 2024.
We are a non-profit organization dedicated to :
- Developing and scientifically validating programs to promote children’s resilience and mental health in vulnerable communities
- Raising awareness about adverse childhood experiences and their health and intergenerational risks.
Because we recognize the importance of mental health and wellbeing in the generation alpha kids.
- Generation alpha kids are true digital beings in an increasingly stressful world, which is a risk factor for their emotional and social development.
- Uncertainty, stress, anxiety and depression are now on an unprecedented scale in children and adolescents, with alarming trends in mental health.
WHY GENERATION ALPHA MINDS?
Currently, around one in four adolescents meet the criteria for having a serious mental illness. Data shows that adolescents meeting this criteria increased by more than 20 % in the last five years. When they will all be born, there will be almost 2 billion of them, the largest generation in the history of the world.
The mental health and well-being of the generation alpha will have a crucial impact on society and the future of life on our planet.
Adverse Childhood Experiences are the biggest unaddressed public health threat today.
Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) are potentially traumatic events that occur during childhood or adolescence. ACEs include experiencing violence, abuse, or neglect, witnessing violence in the home or community, growing up in a household with substance use problems, mental health problems or instability due to parental separation or incarceration.
