Making Connections for Better Mental Health at School

In March 2020, the world drastically changed for most students across America. With COVID-19 spreading, brick-and-mortar schools started shutting their doors to keep everyone safe at home.  

Think about that pivotal moment through the eyes of a student attending a school that closed. One day they were in class surrounded by friends, classmates, and teachers laughing, learning, and connecting. The next they were in their rooms, staring at a screen, with no friends to eat lunch with, no teacher to answer questions after class, and no quick waves as they passed friends in the hallways.  

Millions of students were suddenly alone.
