It’s been a tough year for everyone, but especially for kids. One recent study shows alarming increases in both depression and anxiety in children and adolescents across the globe. In the spring of 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) warned of a massive surge in mental health issues in the coming months, with mental health-related visits for children ages 5-11 and 12-17 years increasing approximately 24 percent and 31 percent as compared to 2019.
