citiesRISE is dedicated to mobilizing youth voice to create mental health friendly cities. With the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, citiesRISE decided to ask youth around the world about the impacts of the crisis on their lives.
During April 2020 we conducted a survey that attracted 1000+ responses globally.
We wanted to understand:
- How young people were feeling as a result of being locked down and how it was impacting them and their families.
- Where they get information and who they would seek help from.
- What gave youth hope and what they needed to take care of themselves.
