As today‚Äôs period of self-isolation progresses on, it’s important to remember to take care of ourselves mentally and physically – especially teens. One in every five teenagers suffers from mental illness, and with Covid-19, the numbers have only risen. In March, the Disaster Distress Hotline experienced an 891% spike in calls. This drastic increase further goes to show how difficult this situation is. The stress and anxiety that comes with Covid-19, severe unemployment rates, and the struggles of quarantine end up leaving people feeling worse.
