A teenager shares how students can connect, even in the COVID era.

Recently, our sister publication, Psychiatric Times, ran an article written by a 15-year-old high school girl, who wanted to share her experiences trying to connect with other students in this most unusual of school years. In it, she talks about how, even without being able to physically hug or high-five fellow classmates and friends, the students have been able to come together as both peers and mentors, sharing a variety of topics, from the presidential debates this past Fall to creating mental health breaks through a Walking Club.

We found this article offering much needed inspiration for young people trying to navigate being a teenager (a pinnacle time for socializing and learning relationships skills of all kinds) in the era of COVID. You can read (and share with your patients) the entire article here. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
