The coronavirus response has disrupted the lives of young people in many ways, resulting in missed milestones and opportunities. Life is not “on hold” for teens this year, it’s still moving forward. How are young people finding ways to cope with the disappointments and tangible setbacks? How are teens taking care of their well-being during the pandemic?
Colorado Public Radio’s Avery Lill hosts a discussion with and for teens to share their experiences, as part of a live, virtual event with licensed therapist and school social worker Feliz Fraser, and Rosalind Wiseman, a teen mental health advocate and author of Queen Bees and Wannabes, to explore solutions for navigating these unprecedented losses. The event is co-produced by Call to Mind, American Public Media’s initiative to foster new conversations about mental health and Colorado Public Radio as part of the Well Beings Campaign and The Youth Mental Health Project, presented by WETA.
