My research question is, how has the covid pandemic impacted mental health in the youth? This topic interests me because during the pandemic I feel like my mental health has gotten worse due to being isolated from others. I’m the type of person that loves going out and being surrounded by people so this was a major change for me. Also, being stuck in the house with the same people living the same life every day was hard. I already know that many other people my age struggle with the same issues I did because they would post about it on social media. Teachers would talk about how online schooling is hard and the kids would open up to professors agreeing with them. Some points that I plan to explore and find out more about is what other factors are affected by the pandemic in mental health.
