Tune In: WBUR's Series 'Pandemic Generation' Starts Monday, June 21

The last year has taxed the mental health of many Americans, especially kids and teens. We’ll look at how they’re coping and what can help in a special series, Pandemic Generation.

Kids tell WBUR that even after returning to classrooms, anxiety, isolation, grief, masks and physical distancing, have left a lasting imprint. Pediatric mental health care providers report they've been inundated with requests for services. And parents are struggling with how to meet the moment.

Pandemic Generation will probe into the mental health consequences of the pandemic for kids and young adults and possible solutions. Can challenging situations become a catalyst for kids’ personal growth?

The weeklong series debuts on Monday, June 21 on wbur.org with stories on WBUR's Morning Edition and All Things Considered.

Pandemic Generation is funded in part by a grant from the NIHCM Foundation.
