While a raging pandemic has been sweeping the country for the past two years, mental health issues have been a topic of consideration. In particular, children are performing poorly in schools when compared to previous years. Since virtual learning replaced in-person learning, it was discovered that many students struggled to learn in that environment. Youngsters struggled with things such as distraction from phones and internet issues. 

 Because many students failed to pay full attention during their 1 1/2 years of online study, the results reveal that it had an impact on their academic performance. Furthermore, now that students are back in school, they are finding it more difficult to concentrate and remain seated in an uncomfortable position for long periods. 

With that in mind, teachers are doing their best every day to ensure that children are comfortable and comprehend what they are learning so that they do not struggle during the school year. Nonetheless, the students’ mental health is deteriorating and worsening over time. The pandemic is a major contributor to this phenomenon. 

Due to the inability to see one other, many friendships and connections were destroyed. Individuals’ mental health is vital since it encompasses our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It has an impact on the way we think, feel, and act. It also influences how we deal with stress, interact with people, and make good decisions. 

It is critical to maintain individuals’ mental health as much as possible for their daily actions and thoughts to be normal. Teachers and staff are working diligently to create a positive atmosphere encouraging the mental well being and success of all students. Students should not hesitate to reach out to all of the resources available to them in school that can indeed help them cope with any mental health issues they may be experiencing.
