COVID-19 has transformed life in California and plunged our nation into a “new normal". Interviews show that adolescents in particular are struggling with the mental health effects of the isolation and stress of a pandemic. A recent California Partners Project study aims to help caregivers and adolescents understand what is happening beneath the surface so they can support and navigate the healthiest possible response to the loss and changes of the COVID-19 era.  In this UCCS special presentation, a former social media executive reflects on some of the potentially pernicious effects of social media on adolescents and their parents.  Then a leader from the California Partners Project summarizes key findings from their recent report and introduces a toolkit for mitigating harms now and in a post-pandemic future.
