The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the life of young students in such a manner that many are unhappy and even frustrated. They are missing out on important years of their school life. Staying at home continuously, attending on-line classes, missing out on social activities including the fun in the classroom and the playground, they have become exhausted. They are uncertain about their future. They may be grieving a close family member lost due to the pandemic.
Are you such a young student in Kolkata who is finding it difficult mentally to cope with the COVID pandemic? Are you scared and lonely? There is help at hand.
