“The mental health of millions of children worldwide has been put at risk, with at least one in seven forced to remain at home under nationwide public health orders – or recommendations – during the COVID-19 pandemic. More than 330 million youngsters have been stuck at home, till March 2021, for at least nine months, since the virus spread uncontrollably this time last year.” -UNICEF India
Even in children, mental health plays an equally important role as physical health. Mental wellbeing can assist kids with their emotional and social skills development and can also affect their developments later in life.
It has been observed that a child’s mental health, in their childhood, condition can affect their growth deeply in terms of how they learn, grow, behave and even handle their emotions as adults.

It requires the urgent attention of all stakeholders to address the issues on a war footing before much damage is done to learners.
Every school has been addressing the issues confronting it by trial and error and has had a fair share of success. No school can claim that learners came unscathed during this period.
