– Major depression
– Substance use disorder
– Alcohol use disorder
– Hypertension
– Hyperactivity
– Psychotic conditions
– Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis

“While the top 10 conditions affecting millennials are not necessarily surprising, what is shocking is the prevalence rates for each of these conditions in millennials when compared to rates for previous generations,” Dr. Vincent Nelson, vice president of medical affairs for the BCBSA, told Healthline.
