The effects of Covid-19 on young people’s mental health and psychological well-being An updated literature review
Following the work of Mastrotheodoros (2021) published by the Partnership between the European Commission and the Council of Europe in the field of Youth, this report is an updated literature review of studies focusing on the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on young people’s mental health and psychological well-being in Europe. The report presents an overview of the most recent research on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on adolescents’ and young people’s mental health and psychological well-being, as well as an increase in seeking mental health services. The age group is restricted to ages from approximately 12 to 29 years, covering both adolescence and young adulthood. The report also provides some important distinctions regarding whether the studies are longitudinal or entail more than one wave of data collection.
