Social isolation, loneliness, and suicide are conditions we often associate with the elderly. But in reality, these issues have sharply increased across younger generations. Baby Boomers, Gen X’ers, Millennials, and post-Millennials all report a declining number of friends and an increasing number of health issues associated with loneliness. In his book, "Connecting Generations," Hayim Herring focuses on how Baby Boomers, Gen Xers, and Millennials perceive one another and looks underneath the generational labels that compound isolation.
