citiesRISE Asked Youth About how We can Best Support Them Through the COVID-19 Pandemic

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.
