The topic that interests me is mental health. My research question is “How has the CV pandemic impacted and changed the mental health of teenagers/young adults?” This topic interests me because I have had my own experience with mental health for better or worse throughout this pandemic and can add a lot of my own opinions and examples, and I know it is something a lot of other people have dealt with as well. I already know that it has affected a lot of people because of the lockdown itself, it created a lack of productivity, socialization, and just put a stop to the normal life we were used to. So many people dealing with mental health issues throughout the pandemic is not a surprise because our lives literally changed to the point of nothing being normal anymore. Some points that I plan to explore and find out more about are more specific ways we were affected emotionally, mentally, academically, and if they are going to stick with us permanently even though things are changing again.
