‘Investigating the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on older adolescents’ psychological wellbeing and self-identified cognitive difficulties’
Open Access paper from JCPP Advances
The COVID-19 pandemic coincides with growing concern regarding the mental health of young people. Older adolescents have faced a particular set of pandemic-related challenges and demonstrate heightened vulnerability to affective disorders (particularly anxiety). Anxiety symptoms are associated with a range of cognitive difficulties. Older adolescents may therefore be susceptible to pandemic-related declines in wellbeing and associated cognitive difficulties.
