Empty hallways and classroom entrance, Denver’s South High School, Tuesday, May 5, 2020. The pandemic has done far more than disrupt in-person learning for teenagers who are missing milestones and things normally associated with growing up.

The pandemic has disrupted the lives of young people in many ways, resulting in missed milestones and opportunities. Life’s not “on hold” for teens this year. They share personal stories and we focus on solutions as they find ways to cope and move forward. This special presentation is a partnership of Colorado Public Radio with Call to Mind, American Public Media’s initiative to foster new conversations about mental health as part of the Well Beings Campaign and The Youth Mental Health Project, presented by WETA.
