How Is COVID-19 Affecting the
Mental Health of Kids and Teens?
The COVID-19 pandemic has lasted much longer, and affected our lives much more intensely, than any of us could have imagined just a short year ago. Maryland students, in particular, have spent most of this time attending virtual school, as opposed to in-person classes. Teenagers and young adults, meanwhile, have had to completely rethink their approach to college and career planning. Youth staples like sports, prom, extracurriculars, and even high school graduation have been limited or canceled altogether.
