THE MIND OF A TEEN DURING COVID-19
Being a teen is hard. Being a teen during this unprecedented time of Covid-19 is really hard.
Since March 13th, Teen Line has been a direct responder to youth in crisis as a result of the pandemic. Every night from 6-9PM PST they are texting and e-mailing with teens across the globe about anxiety, loneliness, depression, abuse, suicidal ideation or whatever is troubling them.
Social isolation is tough for anyone. For a teen its deeply distressing.
Teens are mourning the loss of prom, graduation, group activities, school, sports, and other rites of passage that they have looked forward to for years. These large-scale losses are devastating to them.
They connect on video apps and social media with their friends, but teens miss the social interaction and being together in person.
Added to all of this, is the worry about staying healthy and their family’s financial stability. Teens with volatile family dynamics are suffering even more.
Teen Line’s highly trained teens are here to help. They relate to what a teen is going through because they are going through it too.
On #GivingTuesdayNow, your donation will support the critical work of Teen Line as a mental health resource helping prevent youth from spiraling into crisis.
