CRISIS – According to the CDC, the rates of suicide, self-harm, anxiety and depression are up among kids and teens – a trend that began before the pandemic. A deficit of mental health care workers and facilities for young people, along with a depletion of resources during COVID-19 and lack of school mental health specialists, have created extraordinarily challenging conditions for families who need help in already troubling times. Wisconsin is one state struggling to meet these needs. 60 MINUTES’ Sharyn Alfonsi travels to Milwaukee to chronicle how the pandemic has impacted the mental health of their youth and how families and communities have responded. Ashley Velie is the producer.
LAND OF FIRE AND ICE – Bill Whitaker returns to Iceland to report on a volcano that erupted in 2021 and now boasts a new landscape of molten rock and snow. Whitaker explores the discoveries Icelandic scientists have made in forecasting eruptions and could apply to similar volcanoes around the world. Heather Abbott is the producer.
SURVIVAL OF THE FRIENDLIEST – Anderson Cooper reports on the links between dog and human evolution and explores how dogs diverged from wolves and developed what one geneticist calls “friendliness mutations.” Those mutations are found in the same genes that are deleted in some people with a condition called Williams syndrome. Denise Schrier Cetta is the producer.
