Covid-19 was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization on the 11th of March 2020. Whilst children and young people are at lower risk of severe illness and death, they have arguably been amongst those most affected and least supported by the Covid-19 societal response. In this talk, I will draw on the available evidence to discuss what is known about the impacts of the pandemic on the mental health of children and young people, including the acute and chronic effects of Covid-19 illness, the impact on at-risk groups, and access to mental health services and education during the pandemic
