Covid-19 and Youth Mental Health

Feeling sad, stressed or angry while coping with COVID-19 is normal. It’s not only the fear and anxiety about the coronavirus disease but also being away from schools, friends and relatives. Adjusting to new ways of learning and working is hard. But guess what? You are not alone.

Discover the stories, illustrations and messages of support shared by the Voices of Youth community around the world trying to adapt to this new (temporary) normal. And share yours! 

We are in this together.
