Since the beginning of Covid many teens have been reaching out on social media like tiktok, or instagram to seek mental help and comfort with those who are experiencing the same thing. This is an issue than needs to be addressed. One in three adolescents (31.9 percent) will meet the criteria for an anxiety disorder by the age of 18. The restrictions of the pandemic have been felt across the board. For teenagers, restrictions have meant months of virtual learning, more time isolated from friends, and the canceling of important social activities like sports, school performances, graduations, and proms. Many parents don't understand that this is a major issue and neglect their needs due to their beliefs that this is only temporary because of Covid when in fact it's been an ongoing thing but more teens are stepping forward. Depression is a common thing and isn't anything to be shamed of so we need to bring this issue up more often, especially during these rough times and make seeking help a normal thing so more teens can deal with their issues professionally and have their parents take it seriously.
