Young people, mental health and Covid
Covid has been incredibly hard on young people. They are seemingly less vulnerable to the virus but totally exposed to the measures used to contain it.
I led a review into the effects of Covid-19 and the national measures taken to contain the spread of the virus. I heard directly from children about their hopes and fears for their education going forward, and the toll that Covid has taken on them so far.
Young people recommended several measures that would help them to get back to making the most of their lives.
