Latest YOL! Podcast Venture

During the first Covid-19 lockdown YOL! identified that overall, young people did well in terms of mental health however, some struggled with both their mental and physical health as a consequence of the pandemic.

We found that young people are seeking reliable sources of information to maintain or improve their wellbeing other than social media, and that they trust schools to undertake this role. Finally, we realised that it is everyone’s responsibility to help young people develop resilience, and we pledged to act upon this.
