“Teens, Tweens and Quarantines” by Jon Mattleman

Not only are the teen years some of the most stressful due to so much being out of their control, but add the challenges of a global pandemic and it could mean increased mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, self-harm, and eating disorders.

Jon Mattleman, a mental health counselor and creator of “The Secret Lives of Teens” gave an online talk on how the drastic life changes and isolation brought about by COVID-19 have affected kids 9-19.

The event was sponsored by The Monomoy Regional School District and Harwich Youth Services.

“Imagine you are a teen or a tween and somebody told you that you have no school,” Mattleman said, commenting on how kids would initially be thrilled until learning they would now have to be home 24/7 with their parents.
