Science & Technology

Children have been spared the worst of the disease, but the pandemic has taken a terrible toll on their mental health—and we likely won’t know how bad for years. But it’s a question our two guests have been tracking closely and they offer some hints.

He recently wrote a sweeping report for Collateral Global synthesizing studies from around the world, “The Impact of Pandemic Restrictions on Childhood Mental Health.”
