Abstract

Mental health problems are on the rise among young adults in the U.S. (Kingkade, 2016). At the same time, today’s U.S. young adults are significantly more invested than their older counterparts in portraying themselves as “positive” (self-confident, easy-going, and happy; Berenson et al., 2018). Although many have begun to speculate that these two trends may be linked (e.g., Fagan, 2017), little empirical research on this issue exists.
