Climate change, pandemics, and societal injustice are pressing questions, so much so that we feel a need to hurry in order to do something about them. A question which we tend to forget but one that is equally pressing is mental health. The mental well-being of populations is not easy to predict, but generally speaking, the trend has been more or less negative all over the world: mental health problems are increasing, especially among the young. This is partly due to a new openness and novel ways of diagnosing and defining human problems, but what has been known long is that substance abuse, gambling, and eating disorders are entangled and make up a part of the mental health problems paradigm.
