The COVID-19 pandemic brought on some concerns among teachers and parents. This project looks at 6 studies to determine if there is an increase in mental health in regard to depression and anxiety. Depression and anxiety are at an increase across all studies. There are four studies that look at ways to help students with mental health concerns. Telehealth and two varieties of art therapy have been proven to help adolescents with an increase in mental health concerns. Telehealth, virtual therapy session, attendance has increased with patients post-COVID as compared to pre-COVID numbers. Another benefit to post-COVID telehealth therapy has been the increase in participation among parents and guardians of adolescents.
