I have learned many things throughout this research project, the main thing I learned was that the pandemic has had a great effect on the mental health of adolescents. Having to be isolated away from ur friends and family and switching to online school can be very difficult for many teens, even children. Something that did surprise me the most was when Matthew Taylor said that during the pandemic, teens were becoming more addicted to social media. This shocked me because I thought I was the only one that was struggling with this problem during lockdown but it also feels relieving that I wasn’t the only one with this issue. The main audience I am targeting towards in parents and school staff members. They see children every day. They have a huge impact on their lives. Reading my piece I hope they’ll be more aware of children’s mental health.
