Coronavirus: Guidance for Better Mental Health


Young People

For many teens, COVID-19 meant missing out on some of the biggest moments in their young lives, with school closed and social events canceled. Months in lockdown also meant a rise in cyberbullying and body dissatisfaction as teenagers spend more time on social media.

So I wanted to share this guide from MyTutor with useful tips and advice for parents to help their teens overcome body image issues, academic anxiety, peer pressure, and cyberbullying, including links to other important teen mental health resources - all of which can be helpful in these uncertain times.
