Being a teenager is such a pivotal time in a person’s life. Relationships with peers are EVERYTHING and emotions are heightened as we are figuring out who we are and our place in the world. Add to that the isolation of a global pandemic and it is not a surprise that the mental health of adolescents was severely impacted.
“It was isolating and it was hard to fathom life before isolation. And I know after, it was so bizarre and I was absolutely horrified to go back to school.” – Elyse Jewel
