Author(s):

Dr. Rekha Tomar, Dr. Anshu Agarwal

Abstract:

This theoretical paper examines the potential impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the mental health of adolescents. The pandemic has brought about unprecedented changes in daily life and led to increased levels of anxiety and depression among adolescents. The paper explores potential long-term effects, including social anxiety, avoidant personality traits, PTSD, and other trauma-related disorders. Strategies for prevention and treatment of mental health problems during and after the pandemic are discussed, including community-based approaches and mental health education programs. The paper draws on studies by Loades et al. (2020), Xiong et al. (2020), Patrick et al. (2021), and Lee et al. (2020) to provide insights into the impact of the pandemic on adolescent mental health.
